I'm sensing a pattern here.

Sunday, 5 December 2010

Well, I've missed another day, hmm. Thing is I can't remember what I was doing last night. Oh well, here I am tonight.

I'm writing this from my iPhone in bed instead of my computer so I don't have any passages off hand to post. I have an idea, though.

I'm homesick, there's no denying that. And everyday my Southern home shows more and more in my voice-- both in my writing voice and in my speaking voice. In fact, my husband keeps asking if I've been talking to my mother in North Carolina even when I haven't.

And so, the writing challenge I'm setting for myself is one that will hopefully take advantage of my Southern voice. I'm going to dedicate 7 days to this challenge. I'd like to say I could do 7 days in a row, but let's be honest.

So, I will call this challenge '7 Days in the South'. The idea is to write a new piece-- ideally for one of my BTW or AP (another WIP I haven't really started in on yet)-- each day using one thing I miss about home.

Now don't get me wrong, I miss my family most of all, but that's not what this is about. This is about the strange, sad, things that make me cry for home. The things that should just be ordinary, but aren't for some reason. Some reason that I can't quite explain. Now I just have to narrow it down to 7 things....
