The SOLC is coming; the SOLC is coming. That Two Writing Teachers "gang" have begun to write about prizes and volunteers. Time to start the back of the brain thinking! And that means I'd better be making my lists of what, or maybe how, who, when, why, and where!
What can I write? Perhaps shopping: choosing well, rules of, the best places for bargains, keeping away from the mall, shopping local, favorite shopping - for books!
Who can I write about? Probably family, especially grandchildren, maybe relatives from the past like my dear grandmothers. Also, could include authors I've met and my thoughts about that, or other famous people I've loved meeting. I could write about biographies of real people that I've read about, and discuss some of the interesting points. I could write about my pets.
When is an interesting question word. It doesn't always fit into the boxes I draw. This time, what will "when" mean? I will interpret it to be special moments of my life: when I was born (hey, I heard stories!), when I lived with grandparents, when I started college, when I married... There will be plenty of "whens" in my SOLC writing.
Why- oh my. This could go on for a while. Why does the car make this certain noise? Why does my thermostat change numbers when I haven't asked it to? Why is it hard to find good words to use when I'm writing? Why is the moon so interesting to me?
Where - I.love.this.word! My OLW this year is "paint" so I could begin to paint small canvases of different places I'd love to go. I'll certainly write about nature, and my walks. Where also implies that I know where everything is. And it also means time to define "where is my life going?". By March, I hope I might find out!
Have you started creating a list or saving small bits of ephemera so you can feel prepared to write every day in March? Perhaps you're also going to post poetry every day in April?
Time to get ready!
