Will this winter ever end?
Plans changed, events cancelled, over and over again. Snowstorm after snowstorm and bitterly cold temperatures have been the status quo lately.
I like to get out of the house and do something fun on occasion, meet with my writers group, check out the bookstores and libraries, and look for inspiration. It seems like I have been housebound more than I have been away from home! And to top that off, I just got over cold #2 for the winter of 2013-2014. At least I don’t do public speaking for a living!
Thankfully, we have had power, so I've been able to do some research, reading and writing. Recently, I found a website that can be helpful for those of us who seem to be spending a lot of time inside and might be going a little stir crazy:
Toasted Calender – writing prompts for every day of the year. http://www.toasted-cheese.com/calendar/There are also writing contests, forums, chats, writing exercises, even a pre-NaNoWriMo challenge.
However, I am so ready for an off-site conference, retreat, dinner out, shopping expedition, a walk in the park . . . .
How has your winter and your writing been going? What are your ideas for beating cabin fever?
24 more days until spring!
