Practice

Practice makes perfect. In order to improve in my writing, I need to write every day. I am trying to enter writing conests, about one a month. I have never won anything, but it is great practice. I am working on a story right now for Memoirs Ink. When I was in grade school, my great-grandfather had a picture and an article appear in the Chillicothe paper for rescuing a Morning Dove. It was January and the bird could not fly or even hardly walk. He took him into his wood-stove heated garage and fed him. This allowed him to recooperate until warmer weather appeared. It also taught me a valuable lesson in respecting nature, and taking the time to care for others, no matter how small. Part of the reason that I enjoy writing so much is that I get to revisit these memories (good and not so good. Whether these memories are positive or negative, lessons were learned from all of them. My goal is to get a novel published, but in the meantime, I will be thankful for the pure joy of just writing and remembering. Practice makes perfect!
