30 Days of Writing – Day #4

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

The first story I remember writing down was for an 8th grade assignment. I don’t remember whether fiction was called for, but it’s what I did. (And if that were the case, it set the stage for many college papers that were about writing rather than the interpretation of literature.) The story was a murder mystery. A cook poisoned a diner’s pumpkin pie with tainted cinnamon. Our hero detective subdued him with a mackerel. Mystery and food: some might say that my writing hasn’t progressed much.

I slept for nine hours last night. Went to bed at 9pm, woke up at 6am. Between a socially draining week and very unhappy joints, I was exhausted. This week needs to be much, much more productive.
