If you want to read Sarah's writing

then I have, with her permission and even encouragement, a tip for you. Some friends of hers have gathered to create a blog in which they are alternating prose contributions. You can read it here.

Sarah explained (as does the blog in its first entry) that each piece of prose must center on a word the writer finds at oneword.com. The piece must then be exactly the number of words the writer got when she or he went to random.org and entered 15 and 500 as the limits of the random number. The writers each cover one day of the week. Sarah has Tuesday.

As you might expect, I've enjoyed the one contribution Sarah has posted so far. This seems like a fun prose game, and I hope they keep it up.

In related news, Sarah and Ben occasionally post their music-related thoughts here. It's a nice place to go for tips on new tunes.

Enjoy.

Wow, she's real good. Short section, yet lots of tone and depth.

Though I have to confess to parental bias, I genuinely believe she is a very strong writer. Thanks for the kind words.

Daddy is always right, but especially so in this case.
