“Just Jot It January #27–Celebrating Life in Progress” by Linda Martin Andersen

I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit.  I can’t participate every day this month, but I will join in when I can.

I decided to create a theme to write about:  I chose “celebrate.”

Today, I celebrate life in progress.”

Fellow writers and bloggers, I get asked these questions.  Do you?

What are you writing these days?  How’s your writing coming?

At this time, I’m revising some manuscripts, which is something writers are most always doing.  To spice things up a bit, I decided to try something new.  As a participant in Just Jot It January,  I am meeting new bloggers and fortunately I’ve added some new followers.  Both are exciting to me.  Other bloggers will understand.  Today, I’d like to credit  Linda G. Hill for the term “life in progress.”  It’s her blog title.  She is also the one who organized Just Jot It January.  So, I want to thank her for all her hard work to make this a reality.  It is a great experience and I’m glad I joined in.  I hope you’ll check it out too.

Writing Prompts:

  1. What are some common greetings that ask about life in progress?  For example, “What’s up?” Name as many as you can and write a scene where two people meet and ask about each other.
  2. What other phrases can you think of that include the word “life?”  For example, “the beginning of life.”  Write about one of these.
  3. How can you bring “life” to your day?

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  I’d love to hear what you’re celebrating today.  Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!

    Dear Linda,
    “How’s it going?” is a phrase I hear when people want an update on you and your life.

    Thanks for writing this post.


    • Hi Joan,
      Yes, that’s a special greeting indeed. It doesn’t seem to be trendy like some that go out of style. It’s one I like to be asked.
      I hope someone asks about you today in a special way today. Thanks for commenting!

Your post has brought a little ray of sun to my chaotic day and brightened my life at the same time. Thank you again! 😀
