This I like many other Minnesotans survived another winter storm and driving around this week, the scenery looks like a midwest Christmas card. Trees were topped with fluffy layers of white snow in the cities and the sides of the streets are still lined with a good blanket of the same fluff.
Sitting under my blanket tonight with the quiet streets at midnight, I can see the snow sparkling under the street lights. My urge to wish a heat wave is silent for a moment because I know there are several people out there who would be disappointed if there was no snow during this time of year.
Yes, there is something magical about the way the snow glitters in moonlight or under the street corner. The trees do look beautiful when it looks like someone brushed a layer of white over the branches. The only reason I groan when I see the flakes fall is when I have drive on slippery roads.
So, for a moment I in the middle of the night with my Christmas tree lights on I’ll stop and appreciate living in a land that can become a frozen tundra. I’m also enjoying my cat naps during my breaks and holiday parties. But after binging on a new series and hearing the sound of one of the characters typing on their typewriter my fingers did twitch.
Thoughts about my many plots floated through my mind and my inner writer asked when the last time I read a really good book or heard words that inspired me to sit up all night typing. My plan is to spend the remainder of the month making a pile of good reads, or a pile of inspiration so that I can push one of my stories into a new place next year.
If you’ve read anything good, please share in the comments. I wish you well in your own writing journey.
