After finishing up Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way this past semester, I have been collecting bits of what she calls “synchronicity.” Maybe because this season I am obsessed with all things time – did you know horology was the study of time? – and of course all things writing.

You have the ability to excel in novel areas

Hmm, novel areas. Which I guess is why I have decided to spend my year working on short stories, right? But I am playing with some old drafts, trying to tighten up my tendancy toward the “cast of thousands” and let some characters do a bit more heavy lifting. But that is for another day. Today, after procrastinating by cleaning my house and putting away all things Christmas, I will finish the week’s story and get it ready for Story Sunday. I hope.

We are expecting snow tomorrow, which happens about ever three or four years around here, and naturally we do go a bit nuts. But a cold snowy day will be perfect for catching up with reading, getting next week’s story prompt dialed in, and drinking hot cocoa by a fire.

Have a great weekend!
