Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month? NaNo?
Yes, I know it is not November.
November is generally a pretty busy month around our household. There’s a birthday, Thanksgiving and planning for Christmas.
June, however, has none of those distractions. June is summertime. June has only one wedding anniversary and no birthdays and no National Holidays.
June would be a great month to write a novel.
If I wanted to write a novel. Which I don’t. Or, more clearly….I have no idea what I would write about if I were to write a novel. My friend Anna Howard has actually written a novel, which is about to come out…so I offer that as something to read.
I, on the other hand, thought I might take June to be….Local Blog Revival Month. LoBloRe. Yeah, doesn’t have the same ring to it, I know.
I am going to try to write each day in June. Sometimes it may be simply a post like today….a rambling talk about something I could tell you in one sentence. It’s the fun of writing, though, and I need to begin again.
I have always been fascinated by how my mind works when I begin to write. Whether on the computer or with pen and paper, I have loved even the feel of writing. The feel of typing or of writing on paper…it calms me.
There are times when I find I am not able to pray in my mind or outloud, but I am able to pray in writing…it brings focus and clarity for me. I am able to work things out on paper better than simply in my mind. This has been true for as long as I can remember.
So, for June, I’m hoping to write something every day in here. I’d love it if you came along and added to the thoughts. Some days I’m sure it will be little more than a Facebook status or Twitter update…some days, hopefully, the mind will be loosened to think more deeply.
