  • Writing Challenge: Nature Part 2

    Part 1 and an explanation are here. * Our driveway was dirt, with the attendant divots. When it rained, the divots turned into puddles and if one of the cars had gone out or come back, there would be tracks in the mud to make dams and rivers from. When the puddles froze overnight, air…

  • Writing Challenge: Nature, Part 1

    One of my goals for January and the new year is to write creatively more often. Nadia of Cottage Notebook is hosting a month-long writing challenge, with themes and increasing word counts through the month.

  • NaPoWriMo 28: Northern Summer

    Northern Summer I want to go swimming in the brook like we used to, getting lost in time until we couldn’t feel our fingers and toes, only getting out when our lips turned blue. Wrapped shivering in towels we’d try to get warm on a rock in the sun, talking and giggling and imagining. The no-see-ums…
