I am surprised we are here again. The March Writing Challenge. This year of March to March has gone quickly. Last year I was recovering from a broken wrist, finally moving on from the loss of my mother and was ready to have spring arrive. We were sitting with lots of snow and temperatures were holding below zero with wind chills near -26.
This year the sun is shinning, the snow is almost gone and we are having balmy days of high 30’s to 50’s. I have been doing yoga (downward facing dog with my wrist) several times a week and the seeds have been started under the grown lights.
It is amazing the difference time can make. I also need to remember that when I sit down to write. This first day of the challenge I am excited and ready to go. I am ready to spring forward to write and write.
I know that in a few weeks I will start to slow and drag a bit. We all do. We begin to lose the little moments in time that we want to write about. The days get busy and time gets short.
So I am working on remembering that time makes a difference. I am working on writing down little moments as they happen so I can come back to them on those slow days when I think – “WHY did I say I would do this again this year?!”
I am working on holding this excitement of sharing my writing with friends, of pushing myself to write daily, of remember that time does make a difference and we will all be amazed at the end of the month when we say – WE DID IT!
