Open to Crazy Ideas

Quote of the Month: Open the window in the center of your chest and let the spirits fly in and out. Rumi
(My theme for this year's A to Z Challenge is Open.)

Millie and Willie, a sock puppet creation, are here to tell you their story during the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. They are my crazy idea for the Blog Challenge. Willie has a crazy idea in this episode. Today is also the first Wednesday of the month which is the day we post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, a crazy creation of the ninja blogger Alex J. Cavanaugh.

Willie and Millie Cottonpoly reading the Community Ed. Guide.
Willie: Millie, you've been reading the Community Ed. Guide. See anything you want to take?
Millie: Oh, I don't know. A few  cooking classes have caught my eye. My dog obedience class is in there again. I wonder if anyone will take it this session.
Willie:  Your classes always fill, Millie. (peers over her shoulder) Look here. They're offering a class on memoir writing.
Millie:  Are you thinking of writing your memoirs, Willie?
Willie:  Not mine...yours.
Millie:  I don't want you writing my memoirs!
Willie:  I don't mean that I'd write them. I think you should write a memoir about your colorful life, Millie.
Millie:  Ppfff. Who would ever want to read that?
Willie:  I would.
Millie:  You already know everything, Willie.
Willie:  Oh, I doubt that. No one knows everything about another person, even someone you've been partners with for over 40 years. You have a cedar chest full of journals. You're a great storyteller. You're the life of the party when you get into talking about our crazy adventures or your dog training. I think you should write it down.
Millie:  Willie, that's a crazy idea.
Willie:  Good writers go with their crazy ideas. Sometimes, you just gotta jump on the train and go for it. (hums I've been working on the railroad)
Millie:  I'm going to need a support group for this...
Come back tomorrow to read more of Millie's puppy dog tales.
Go. Create. Inspire!
And, jump on the train with one of your crazy ideas!
Journaling Prompt:  Write about a crazy idea that you jumped on the train with, or one that you might dare to go with some day soon.
