write something.

Standard

after 4 years and 4 tries

at last i find myself in

the erma bombeck writer’s workshop

at the university of dayton

her alma mater

where she has left an endowment

to support writers of humor and the human condition

i’ve always admired her style of writing

her daughter spoke of growing up in the family

┬áthe joy of erma’s looks at life

already feeling inspired and so lucky

with very welcoming writers

of all shapes and sizes, ages and stages

beginning to accomplished author

each with a unique story and reason

all with a common passion

the desire to write.

“to say, ‘well, i write when i really get into it’ is a bunch of bull.

put the paper in the typewriter, stare at it a long time,

get snowblindness if you have to, but write something.”
