Two things are on my mind today: the upcoming month long SOLC, which I did last year once I discovered it. I need a daily gentle prodding which the SOLC provides. My thinking around it is to write as I think of small tidbits to write about. My plan is to use lunch time which is relatively quiet except for the fifth graders completing work or playing quiet games.
I love my IPad for the WordPress App. It makes posting so much easier. And I know that there will be much to write about for March with the commenting on the March Madness Poetry Event and the release of my friend, Bridget Zinn’s book, Poison.
The other thing on my mind this morning it “book gaps” in my reading. I read a post at Sharpread. While the writer talked about his reading gap being professional books all I could think about is that I don’t have a gap. What’s going on with me is a flat BOOK DROUGHT. I think I can trace this back to my car accident in September. It puzzles me as I had relatively little physical damage save a broken hand and severe bruising on the right side of my body. So why the reading drought?
I have to examine places in my life where there can be more time to read. It seems as thought life is spinning faster and faster. When the accident occurred I was listening to an audio book. And you know, I haven’t listened to one since.
So I have a pile of books on the side of my bed and I have committed to reading every night in hopes of bringing a snow storm to my reading.
