Today I awoke to birds chirping and glorious sunshine streaming into my room. The sweet sounds of the new morning filled my head with promise of a
great day ahead. Still stretching on the crumpled sheets, the warm sunlight filtered itself through the blinds, rolling into a patch of light, I let
the sun kiss my face before finally opening my eyes. 6:50 am, not bad, it only took me five minutes this time to motivate myself to get out of bed.
Feeling for the remote under my pillow, I turn the tv on and listened to the mindless chatter of the morning anchors, when a crash broke my morning
reverie. "Mom!!!, I made breakfast." my son yelled.
The above is just a sample of an actual entry in my daily journal. Sometimes I manage only one entry, some days will see several, usually they are
for me a way to express and record memories, some trivial, some not. What I have found with my "dear diary" entries is that I am able to convey
emotions and feelings that cannot be described with just one word. So I am challenging you all to open up and share with us something personal like a
diary entry in which you can express your emotions and share what you may have felt at that moment.
For this contest, the challenge is to write a Dear Diary entry of any memory or personal moment of your choice. The contest will run until June
3rd, 250 words minimum. All entries should be submitted in this forum by starting a new thread with the prefix (DD)
First Place: 3000 ATS points
Second Place: 2000 ATS points
Third Place: 1000 ATS points
You do not need "Writer" status to participate, Anyone can Enter. However "Writer" status will be given to anyone who submits an entry.
