Day 40/40 Days of Writing
First off, thank you so much to Kate Graham, whose idea to start this project blossomed into an experience that has touched all who participated. Seriously Kate, thank you.
Thank you to all of my fellow writers, especially those who have been sharing their wonderful words and have been so very supportive of me and of each other. I feel like I have made new friends. In fact, I know I have. I wish you all lived close, and to those that do, I can’t wait to meet you.
Sundays are normally low-key for me. Today was busy! I have been thinking all day about what I wanted to say about this project and now I’m stumbling. Just know that this challenge, while difficult, has been an absolute joy. I have always known I love to write, but now it’s different. At work, I find myself scribbling notes or opening up a Word document and furiously getting ideas down on a blank page. I shouldn’t be doing that. I’m on work time, but it has made me realize that this truly is a passion. That sounds trite. Again, words are escaping me.
So here was my very best Academy Award acceptance speech, which is what my previous three paragraphs sort of sound like. Silly, I know, but its all I got. Except, I can’t wait until the next 40 more!
