Messing around online this evening, I was reading Annie Clarkson's lovely blog 'Forgetting the Time'. She has decided to take part in a project created by the novelist Fiona Robyn, called 'A River of Small Stones'. The idea of the project is for you to chose something each day throughout January, and to write a few lines about it. Fiona explains it as follows;
"Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to pay attention to one thing every day during the month of January and write it down. We call these pieces of writing small stones. We're especially interested in both 'writers' and 'non-writers' taking part - it's not about the finished product, it's about the process."
Isn't that a lovely idea? You can read more about it over at A River of Small Stones
So 'Tales' has signed up too...albeit a few days later than everyone else. And so here goes...
The road is slick with mud-brown slush. Cars whoosh past. The dog and I cower, afraid we will witness a screeching, scrunching smash as worlds collide.
