An Example of Daily Writing

(Here's an example of a the beginning of a daily writing session. No 
edits have been made, other than what happened during the initial
flow. If you think it might be a keeper, edit later. The important
thing is to keep going.  jrs)

Blood moon coming tomorrow;
eyes will be skyward, hoping for
clear enough and no rain.
A dramatic sky—clouds and
patches of stars—would be fine,
maybe even preferred,
like daily writing obstacles that
educe a story with grit and
a voice like an old friend
with a mug of steaming coffee
come to visit for no particular reason
other than coffee and to breathe
the same air listening to the sea.
Stories can do that:
come alive and show you how they need to be.
A story will not lie to you
unless it becomes your lie.
Daily writing does not require approval.
All it needs is a curious heart.
