Writer's Workshop

Mama Kat is having another Writer's Workshop this week and I am hurrying to squeeze it in. Here are the prompts.....

The Prompts:
1.) I recently read all about the importance of us bloggers developing an “Elevator Pitch” via one of my new favorite blogs. According Wikipedia and Elevator Pitch is “an overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The name reflects the fact that an elevator pitch can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (for example, thirty seconds or 100-150 words).” Create one short (a sentence long) and one longer (100 – 150 words) Elevator Pitch describing what your blog is about.(inspired by Darren from Problogger)

2.) The strangest dream ever…(inspired by Amo from Where A Woman Shakes Her Tablecloth.)

3.) Write a list of 10 things that can be done to stave off boredom.(inspired by Lourie from CA Girl).

4.) “How many homes have you had? Write a journal entry about ALL the places you’ve called ‘home’ in your life.”(inspired by

5.) “Why wouldn’t they just start over? Write a story where a character refuses to go back to square one.”(inpired by

Which one will YOU choose??

I choose to write a list of 10 things that can be done to stave off boredom.(inspired by Lourie from CA Girl).
These are the ten things that I do to stave off boredom....

1. Get up and take care of the two girls.

2. Get around and get ready to my full-time job that I do during the day.

3. Leave work at 5 and change into more comfortable clothes.

4. Go to my part-time job in the evenings and work with the kids.

5. If I don't go to the part-time job, I drive an hour and a half to go to school.

6. Sit in class for 3 hours and LEARN!!!

7. Drive an hour and a half home.

8. If I am not going to part-time job (see #4) or going to school (see #5, #6 & #7) I am doing home work for the 13 hours of classes that I am taking.

9. If I am not doing #4, #5, #6, #7 or #8 I am looking and reading through my friends blogs.

10. Then if I am not working my full-time job, working at my part-time job, going to school, or doing homework, or looking at blogs I am SLEEPING!!! But that doesn't happen very much.

So I will stop at the ten but I promise I could continue going on and on and on. I didn't list all of the other stuff that I do like hunting.... or fishing..... or all those other redneck things that we do in this neck of the country. I haven't even touched on my cross stitch, embroidery, quilting and all the other *girly* stuff that I enjoy....

Have you ever heard the words, BORED come out of my mouth???? I have no time to be bored. But if any of you are bored I would love to have some pointers on how to spend my few minutes a day that I waste... Just kidding but seriously, if someone knows how to make more than 24 hours in a day I would appreciate the hint. I never seem to have enough time. But such is life!

Now head over to Mama Kat's and look at what everyone else is talking about!
