As I sit here at my desk, looking out of the nearby window, all I see are trees and snow. No, hold on a minute…I spy a Chickadee on the huge pile of bird seeds that my guys dumped over a month ago. Oh wait, here comes another one. This time it’s a large Blue Jay.
Seeing them means that Spring is finally coming (even though the calendar says it’s already officially spring). Living this far north, the weather’s bound to do anything it pleases. Who knows, maybe next week we’ll have a huge snow storm. Or then again maybe a thunderstorm. Mother nature tends to be somewhat unpredictable this time of year; but, being that it is spring, there is hope. The snow will eventually go away, and the earth will green up and sprout wild flowers.
I can’t wait to be able to open a window or two and air out my house. I miss the smell of the fresh, sweet air.
In the meantime, so that I don’t drive myself too crazy with being cooped up for months on end, I plan to keep myself busy throughout the month of April.
With poetry mainly and a healthy dose of flash stories as well as other tidbits (pretty much whatever the muse decides to throw at me).
I’d originally wanted to do Camp NaNoWriMo to work on two current WIPs, but my soul has been urging me to write poems.
That it needs poetry.
For the pain.
No, not physical pain, but for the emotional anguish that seems to be building within; and poetry has always been the only way to relieve this.
I am going to attempt to do not one, but two separate challenges:
National Poetry Writing Month
A to Z Blog Challenge
And I will do these between three of my blogs. In order to limit the confusion, I created a landing page so you can follow what I write on a daily basis if you so choose. Here is the link for that page.
I have no definite theme but what I plan to write will revolve around poetry for most of the time.
Will you be participating in any challenges in April? If so, I’d love to follow your journey!
