I started reading Garden Spells on Sunday and finished it. I have not read a novel in a long while. I am not even sure that Goodreads will allow me to open it on my phone it has been so long since I have logged in. I have been reading, just not novels. Shorts stories, essays, poems, blog posts, Medium articles. There is no loss of reading time. But with the isolation I pulled the title off the one bookcase in my house now. It is magical and just what I needed. The book was waiting for just this time in my life.
It snowed. I woke up to white dustings on all the vegetation.
I am loving the community started by Sarah Selecky called “Writing Through Uncertainty”. She is hosting for a month and providing daily freewriting prompts and a space to share the writing.
Weekdays mean Caroline Donahue will be sharing her daily Instagram Live. I was on a Zoom call with her this weekend which was great and struck me with awe. Caroline and I have spoken through email and messages several times but never on Zoom. I got a little shy.
It is Llama Tuesday!
Tonight is my online class that I am teaching!
I started reading “We have Always Lived in the Castle” by Shirley Jackson.
I ran for the second day in a row – a new streak getting back into a fitness pattern.
I am excited for so many prompts from people I love to follow!
I interacted with several of my writing communities.
