For: Monday’s Writing Essentials
The Challenge: Post a blog entry. Write about writing. Write about your day – but don’t write it about you. Look for the universal. Look for the unique. Look for a new way of looking at your day. Write about darn near anything.

The Jenny Craig plan.and CBS
Our professor in the Creative Writing class that I am auditing with my friend Sarah gave us an assignment for next week. We are to write about writing. I didn’t want to take this stupid class but my friend did and she talked me into auditing the class with her. I think she wanted someone in the class to be dumber than she is when it comes to writing so she picked me. Since I’m not a writer it’s hard to know what to write about. Writers always have a muse (whatever that is) to tell them what to write. If I have one it is ignoring me so I’ll just write about the moment.
I am sitting here in my comfortable rocking chair watching “CBS This Morning” on TV and they are talking to a lady who is telling us about the Jenny Craig diet plan. She said that being on the Jenny Craig diet plan is a way of life that has to be followed forever for it to be effective. Booo to this! I gotta have ham-hocks, collard greens and cornbread more often than this plan probably allows. Oh, I almost forgot, I also have to have an occasional chocolate ice cream cone to satisfy the sweet tooth and I must not forget the Dr Pepper’s to wash it all down (no diet sodas allowed). However, I have a feeling that the folks on the Jenny Craig plan probably are skinnier than I am and look better than I do but I’m willing to bet that they are not near as happy as I am. I’m gonna live to be 102 and I owe it all to good cornbread, ham-hock, collard greens, chocolate ice cream and way too many Dr Peppers.
Woo Hoo, I have just written about how good life is!
