for January: "a river of stones"

Need a January writing challenge? Fiona Robyn has a sweet, daily, writing exercise that seems perfect for this time of year. Here are the basics and a link following to read more. I think I'm in. I haven't committed yet; I'm on staycation and decisions come slowly and thoughtfully right now. But I think I'm in - how about you?

Would you like to start the new year as you mean to go on?

You might have heard of NaNoWriMo, where participants are encouraged to write an entire novel in a single month.

I would like to announce a new event beginning on January the 1st 2011: NaSmaStoMo. National Small Stone Month.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a small stone every day during the month of January.

What is a small stone? 

A small stone is a polished moment of paying proper attention.

You can see many fine examples at our sister blogzine, a handful of stones. You can read more about the birth of the concept of small stones here and how to write them here. ....
