a milestone – solc 2019 #24

We are starting to plan some upgrades and possible additions to our cabin at the lake.  Our first step in this process will be making a comprehensive list of all the things we already love about the property. And there are many!

With my writing I am going to try to be more consistent after this month of challenge and growth is over.  I have said I wanted to do this before… with INconsistent results.  But before I make my plan to move forward with my writing, I want to stop and list the things I already love about what I have done. And there are many!

  • This is the eighth year that I have participated in Two Writing Teachers’ SOLC in March.  Eight Years!
  • Some stories of important family history for my children and grandchildren to remember are now written down for them to keep.
  • On occasion, I have found just the right words, phrases, and cadences that make hearts smile.
  • I have become so much more cognizant of the beautiful world around me.
  • Connections that I have made between small daily occurrences and larger life lessons have enriched my thoughts.
  • Some amazing writers have crossed my path and I have been awed by their work.
  • When I publish this piece I will have 500 posts here on fireflytrails.  500!!

I have said many times that writing makes me more of the person that I long to be, closer to who I am meant to become. So I have been thinking of ways that I can continue to write more consistently and live a more writerly life.

That post comes tomorrow.  Today, for #500, I am celebrating all the worthwhile and fulfilling ways that writing has made my life more complete.

And I am thankful!

  1. It’s hard doing the 31 days of March, but I do agree that I am more cognizant of the world around me and think more like a writer when I write every day. Life, however, will need some catching up after the challenge!

  2. Wow, wow, wow- congratulations on 500! I am impressed. I agree with your valuation of what writing gives you and your gratitude for this community. I especially like your line ‘closer to who I am meant to become.’
