Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 47 the one with abandonment issues

Week 47! Almost the end of November and nearly the end of 2013.

This week, I signed up for The Southeast Review’s Writing Regimen (again). It’s what started this whole Write 1/Sub 1 adventure last year. (I practiced using those prompts before kicking off the official Write 1/Sub 1 in January.)

And while I didn’t use all the prompts when I signed up in June, in reviewing my notebook, I realized that the regimen paid for itself, so to speak. So, I figure it’s a good way to end the year.

This week, I became totally obsessed with this picture that I saw on Twitter:

I was all: must. write. story. True, I know nothing about power plants, and in particular, those in Budapest, Hungary. But why let that stop me? I wrote myself into a corner each day, and each day, wrote myself out of it. It was fun.

Oh, and if you’re as fascinated as I am by the photo, you can see more here.
