Slice 2012: 17 of 31
I think this week of the challenge is a tough one. Days 11 – 17 can be grueling. The newness has worn off, the end of the month feels far away, and writing topics seem to be hard to come by. You can make it though! This week I’ll share nuggets of inspiration to make writing a little less painful.
Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.
