On, In, and Around Mondays: What Makes Your Writing Day?
I noticed it one day.
How I drink differently from a teacup than I drink from a mug.
Oh, that doesn't mean I eschew mugs. I've got my days when I want to steep tea and drink it down, all in one convenient place.
But I noticed it.
Something about the tilt, the edge, the thin place that left me sipping instead of gulping.
I am a writer. My writing, it seems, is better when I've sipped my day.
I wonder, thinking on my teacup versus my mug, what the surprising mechanisms might be that send me one direction versus another. It could be very small things. As small as the edge of my cup.
It could be whether I sit on the porch instead of at the counter.
On the porch, I hear the world speaking itself, quietly, to me. How hard would it really be to change where I sit?
On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place. Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.
If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)
