Winter Time, Writing Time

The first major snow fall appeared this weekend here in Madison and Southeast Wisconsin. One of my writing students reminds me that we should look at snow from a child’s point-of-view and embrace it with all of its magic and wonder.  Sometimes as an adult, I know I see snow and I immediately think of the hassles it brings – driving mishaps, shoveling, difficulty walking around town, etc. This is a lovely metaphor for how we should approach our writing during this new winter season – see it from a child’s point-of-view and begin writing again. Don’t think about where it may go and what may happen to it, just enjoy your writing for its magic – and wonder.

Keep writing forward…March will be here before we know it.
