March hasn’t come in like a lion or lamb… more like a tauntaun. But after a long, hard winter, spring is just around the corner (honest!). The snow will finally melt away completely and usher in a season of renewal and growth. Take advantage of the wild weather for a few more weeks (maybe even days?) and roll up your sleeves and get to work while you still have to wear sleeves long enough to roll up.
This month’s In Print Challenge is start that “spring cleaning” early. Clear those cobwebs from the nooks and crannies in your mind.
Brush the dust off that first draft of the NaNoWriMo novel you finished off when the snow was first starting to fly last November. Clean up the grammar, tighten the verbiage. Take a look at that “incomplete” directory on your computer, the “to do” manila folder you keep on your writing desk, that stack of unkempt notes for a project in the corner of the kitchen. Don’t throw them away; make them into something. April is National Poetry Month. Camp NaNoWriMo is in April. Get organized. Get prepared. Set some goals. Greet the spring ready to plant the seeds of new creativity, then reap the rewards later this year!
