A lot has happened in this past month. Some were great things (yay for family visits, promotions, and ladder climbing in a job I actually love!), but many more were not-so-great things, and while I’ll probably write a post about losing Hamlet, I can’t yet. It’s not for lack of trying, it’s just that once I start writing, my computer screen blurs and takes on this awkward watery vibe, and I have to stop because if I continue it only gets worse. I’ll see about getting that fixed.
In the mean time, I’ve found some things that have brought some joy to my world over these past few weeks, and I hope they bring as much joy to you.
This one has no fun image to go along with it, but it sure did capture my attention when I found it through a downward spiral of link-clicking. Back on May 22, 2010, Cassie put a call out to women to share their wisdom with other young women. The concept is for you to write a letter to your 20-year-old self. It can be advice, warning, inspiration, whatever… but one thing I’ve found in reading each of the ones submitted is that they are always interesting and always touching. I have been thinking of composing my own and sending it over. Maybe you should too.
I miss writing fiction. A lot. The characters have gone quiet on the stage, and they’re growing weary from the wait. I must remedy that soon.
