I love June. My birth month! I woke to full on sunshine and temperatures reaching for the high seventies. A good omen. Normally I only celebrate on the day of my birth in whatever manner the year calls for or opens to me. Years ago it used to really hurt my feelings when nobody acknowledged my birthday, but I grew to understand that did not matter. This is the day that God and my mother gifted me and I need only myself to celebrate my life. This year? I decided to celebrate every single day of the month of June as my own. Maybe it won't be epic, but it will be something!
I haven't been blogging much and it is hard to decide what to actually share here before this month is over. I decided against putting WIP or short stories here just yet. I suppose I could share my reading list which has been quite varied, mention all the side work that is going on in our week-ends and a few week-nights as well as mix in my personal journey . Mmmmmmm, No. I'm just going to end the month with reflection and thanks.
The first morning of May was lit with sunshine. Seems like a good omen for beginning my "Story A Day" Challenge for the month of May. I created the Writing Room page for that and other wip so that I don't have to chase through my blog should I want to edit, expand or toss out. Makes it easier to link as well. Feel free to leave comments. I don't even mind criticism if you're nice about it.
Tired of slogging through paragraphs that land in a sale queue while the whine of a power saw and pounding of a hammers pierce my air space. The gray sky paints the picture outside my window as I write. That and traffic. I don't think Hemmingway had to put up with this. Just typing his name shakes the dust off memories of sunny skies, warm ocean air and drinking in the early afternoon.
I am who I am, uniquely me.
