Writer's Binge Day 1 and Tomato Pie

Today I started Candy Haven's Writer's Binge Class. Everyone in the class set a goal of how many hours they want to write a day for the next week.
My goal: two hours per day
Today I wrote: 2 hours

And since the word binge bring to mind food here is a recipe for:
Tomato Pie
4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped 1/2 cup chopped green onion 1 (9-inch) prebaked deep dish pie shell 1 cup grated mozzarella 1 cup grated cheddar 1 cup mayonnaise Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the tomatoes in a colander in the sink in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10 minutes.
Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in pie shell. Season with salt and pepper. Combine the grated cheeses and mayonnaise together. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.

Food for Thoughts 2

"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." Jack London

This is true in life as well as in writing. Some days there are no ideas or feelings to inspire the words for that day when writing. Some days in life you have to just go for it to make that day a good day. Go to the interview, talk to the person you like, make a new friend, Ace that test, and any number of things.

Food For Thoughts

"If you wish to be a writer; Write!" ~Epictetus

In the last few days I haven't written anything. I was in Florida with my old college roommate. Nothing exciting happened there. Sure we when to the beach. I, of course, get a little sunburn on my legs and back. We went shopping but there only so much shopping I can stand! I know I know women are suppose to LOVE shopping. Not me! We ate at this place that served Brunch called Another Broken Egg. I could eat there everyday. Only it was a little pricey for my looking for a job budget.

I need to go write. As Epictetus say "Write!"
