So, I’ve finished the January “River of Stones” project. It’s been a lot of fun and, I think, good for my process–writing just this little bit every day, and paying careful attention to the words I’m putting down, has made me a more careful reader and even thinker as well as a more careful writer. It’s also been difficult–several times I have had to rush to the computer and squeeze in the writing at the very last minute, even on days when I’d already composed my small stone in my paper notebook earlier in the day.
I think I will continue writing and posting small stones, but I don’t think I could reliably sustain it every day. So I’m going to make it a weekly thing, like my Writer’s Notebook and Photo blog. Let’s say I post one every Monday.
So next Monday, look for the next small stone.
