This or That/Writing Fun/Writing Community
About Me, articles are so last year. Play ToT instead! — Brett Jenae Tomlin
You know the old saying we all heard as kids? “If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?” Our moms loved reminding us how to be individuals and think for ourselves.
What fun is that?
I am jumping, thanks to my writing pal, who often leads me astray, Patricia Haddock. Apparently, it wasn’t enough for her to bare her soul; she invited others to join in the revelation.
If you are curious about how this all began, it started quite innocently, at least, I hope that was the intention of Brett Jenae Tomlin, aka the anxiousenthusiast . And you know what the worst part is? I saw this last week and thought, sure, why not. Then today, when I sat down to knock this prompt off my list, I discovered it is a contest in BJ’s This or That Publication.
I have a love/hate relationship with competition. My competitive side won’t disappear, and my thirst for time for myself and other endeavors goes dry.
So here goes nothing!
This or That?
- Resolutions or No Resolutions? Not really resolutions, but continuing and adapting goals with no real beginning or end. Just a gal trying to improve one day at a time.
- Mountains or Ocean? MOUNTAINS as I shout from one. Not fond of hot weather and sticky sandy beaches, I fell in love with the Mountains of upstate New York in an area called the Adirondacks. Give me a cabin in the mountains with a lake and a kayak, and I am in heaven.
- Fiction or Nonfiction? Both I enjoy fiction for the respite it gives me from life and its demands; however, I love learning and discovering new ideas and ways to do things. But don’t give me an instruction manual. I have a friend who loves reading those things. I know she isn’t right, but I love her anyway. And besides, I know who to call when I need to put something together.
- Morning or Night? Mostly mornings because I love the excitement of a new day, but a night under the stars is incredible too.
