>New Rules – Already Broken!!!!!!!
>I can’t even last a few hours!!!!!! So, okay, here’s the deal.
Madeleine over at Scribble and Edit bestowed upon me this lovely award just a couple days ago, thank you very much Madeleine!!!!! She didn’t list any rules….. So, since it’s about comments, I’m giving this to anyone who’s taken the time to come and visit during the last four days (that’s the number running around in my head…?). It’s a holiday weekend and those of you who take the time to visit on holidays, well, you’re simply the bestest! Be sure to pick it up before you leave; I mean it!!!!! And go over and visit Madeleine, she’s always got something interesting going on!
I’m copying this because I don’t have a lot of time. Working on the thing for tomorrow’s post and Honey wants to watch a movie. It’s a rare weekend off for him and we haven’t really spent much time together, so….
Novelist Fiona Robyn and her fiance Kaspa are curating a new event beginning on January the 1st 2011: a river of stones.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to pay attention to one thing every day during the month of January and write it down. We call these pieces of writing small stones. We’re especially interested in both ‘writers’ and ‘non-writers’ taking part – it’s not about the finished product, it’s about the process.
What is a small stone?
A small stone is a polished moment of paying proper attention.
You can see many fine examples at our sister blogzine, a handful of stones. You can read more about the birth of the concept of small stones here and how to write them here. There are some examples of my own below.
Why would you want to join in?
Because choosing something to write about every day will help you to connect with yourselves, with others, and with the world. It will help you to love everything you see – the light and the dark, the happy and the sad, the beautiful and the ugly.
You don’t have to be a ‘writer’ to get involved. The PROCESS of paying attention is what’s important. I’d especially like ‘writers’ and ‘non-writers’ to get involved. If you’d rather not publish your small stones on a blog, you can write them in a note-book. It could change your entire year…
Will you join us? (copied from here)
It’s a really cool (and thoughtful) writing exercise that shouldn’t take a lot of time…
You can participate daily, weekly, or at the end of the month. You can even just do it privately, at home…
I urge you to go over and check it out.
So, I guess I’ve already blown my blogging schedule. Again. Are you surprised?
I’ll try to get around to some of you through the week. Apparently, I’m addicted =P
Seems like there was something else I was going to say….but I can’t remember. If I do, I’ll put it at the bottom of this….
