So I've been writing weekly for over a year now. This is a huge feat for me. I have pretty much no attention to detail, get bored really fast and move on to other things, hate structure and am rarely one for organization - unless it's my closet and my shoes. So to have kept writing for this over a year period is pretty cool. I feel good about it.
But a change is 'a brewing. There is a story inside me. I wrote a bit of it here last week. But now there is more.
I am not yet sure where it's going. I really don't know much about it yet. This story in my mind. I may explore a subculture with them. See them against the backdrop of an uneasy place. That's probably what I'll do. But other then that, there is not yet much that I know. I don't know what they look like, these people inside my mind. Where they are from. Where they want to go.
But I do know that they loved each other very much but only for a very short time.
I write in tiny spurts. Kind of like this weekly writing but even shorter. A line or two comes into my mind and I type it into the notes on my phone to revisit later. I like writing this way. There is no expectation. Just an unfolding of these words that have now become paragraphs and will become something more in time.
And so my focus has changed. I think about these people who are have not yet fully grown into themselves yet. And this world that they will live in that still has not formed fully into a true place. And I want to spend more time here. Creating this story.. actually no...nurturing this story that is already there but hasn't come out of me yet.
And so this is my plan - even though I don't like plans. To write my weekly Monday morning writing instead as a monthly Monday morning writing. I think it has a great ring to it. Lots of M's. And it will be a monthly Monday morning writing on the first Monday of each month. Except for this one, on the second one because I can't be too organized.
And my hope is that you continue to visit me here each month. To share in my thoughts. My musings and meanderings. And when my story is done, I will share that with you, too.
Thank you for reading my writing. Today and all the other days, too!
