A month ago we thought spring was just around the corner, my flowers started to blossom, the sun was shining, the weather was finally warmer and then April decided it was time for rain. Rain. So much rain. All the rain. And wind of course. In Athens this month, we ended up having six hours of winter and six hours of spring.
Thoughts on NaNoWriMo
NaNoWriMo ended a week ago and I, actually, managed to achieve my goal! Which was: make progress on the story I’ve been putting off for almost two years.
When life gets in the way and then your head gets in the way
It’s the middle of September and, for as much as I had wanted autumn to come, I can’t believe it’s here and the schools are open and ohmygodimreallylosthalp.
Almost poetry: Let me tell you…
You purr when I love you with my hands,
did you know?
A sound like a storm inside your chest,
where contentment and pleasure battle to rip your skin,
and bloom from your mouth,
and the only reason they stay inside
is your stubbornness,
and the promise of sleep,
and maybe my arms around you.
You purr and my bones mend,
did you know?
May is here!
April ended for me with a bang: I won Camp Nano! ✨
This post will mark the last four hundred words of my goal.
It’s also May and my flowers have a great time in these wonderful spring days. ???
Day 17 of Camp Nano
Just as planned, I’m behind on my word count!
This past week had been interesting. We celebrated Easter and enjoyed the sun, but I’ve also been sick and didn’t write quite as much as I wanted to.
