tomorrow i will start the “23 stories for a fried chicken sandwich” project.
“what’s that?” you ask.
well, it’s a bet, of sorts, with my writing partner and friend m. i really need something to kick start my writing again. competition, yes. accountability, sure. pure writing joyfulness, i wish. would any of this really be enough? maybe not.
so m and i decided we had to make the project truly more meaningful. you see, i’ll do ANYTHING for a fried chicken sandwich at bake sale betty in oakland. ANYTHING (you wouldn’t believe its goodness, seriously…).
so me and m made a bet. or a pact. or whatever you want to call it, in which the winner gets a fried chicken sandwich. because i will do anything, even vow to write 23 times in a month when i think i’m too busy writing for work to write for myself.
the 23 stories will follow here. 23 stories in march (the idea is 5 days a week). some will be non-fiction, some will be fiction, some might even be poetry, who knows? one piece might even be about the above house in my neighborhood, which i always think is winking at me.
so wish me luck. i hope you’ll visit often. or, better yet, join me. i can’t promise you a fried chicken sandwich, but if you’re competitive, i can promise you’ll write 23 things this month. you will sit down and write 23 times and wow, that is something (but still not really as good as a BSB fried chicken sandwich).
I’m going to win that sammy.
I can’t wait.
that must one great sandwich!
Lol..um that house really is winking, weird.
Can’t wait to read your stories, I too have been craving words lately.
It DOES look like it’s winking! What a happy house.
Hi Sheri! I am glad to see you’re doing this. I was thinking about doing something similar. I’m a new mom (is 10 months still considered new?), and don’t find a lot of time for writing. But I want to remedy that. 23 stories sounds fantastic!
mmmmmmmmmmmmm, is theirs better than say, wendy’s?
good luck with the new project
oh perfect! you just might be inpsiring me to write 5 days a week too, my brain needs emptying this month, i can already tell :)
What a glorious, lovely idea. I’m inspired already!!
