Ah, my first blog post! Yay! So what should I write about? Hmm.
How about this seemingly neverending winter that we’re having?! I don’t know about all of you, but I’m ready for summer. Sunshine. Warmth. Not snow.
I suppose one good thing about winter is that it’s the perfect time to curl up with my notebook, pen, a cup of hot chocolate, and just write. I do a lot of writing longhand, and while it’s not as fast as typing, I sometimes find it’s better. I really think about the words that I’m putting on the page, and it gives me more time to map out the scene. I have a box of notebooks tucked away in a closet that are filled with short stories, story ideas, character descriptions and setting information. I would seriously cry buckets if that box ever got thrown away. (Note to husband: Do No Touch!)
So today, while the snow is falling and the wind is howling outside, I’m going to try and catch a few minutes alone with my notebook and pen. Maybe when my daughter goes down for a nap. 🙂
