I Have Fingers of Thunder

Johny Thundersbeard does not procrastinate about writing

How It All Began at Writing.com (for me anyway)

I Had just completed a 8 week beginning creative writing course athttp://www.allwriters.org and had some down time before starting their how to write flash fiction course. I didn’t feel like reading a how to write book, I just wanted so
Something short and sweet. And something in my email inbox to inspire me like AllWriters had. I wasn’t having much luck finding writing tips newsletters of any value. No luck that was until I just typed writing.com into my browser to see what was there.

The words “hub” and “community” blazed into my headspace. And then, ah – newsletters!

I signed up straight away and posted some of the better exercises from my AllWriters course. And even completed a photo writing prompt. For a procrastinator like me – small story, big victory. I didn’t actually enter it into the comp as I couldnt work out how – unfamiliar with bitem, unfamiliar with he whole CMS of writing.com (assuming it’s home grown). I’m usd to working with blogs and forums as coder and moderator.

While disappointed that I couldn’t get the newsletters in my inbox, I was pretty impressed.

Early on anyway.

Next: why I chose Thundersbeard as my handle
