Last week I was referred to a new doctor. As she looked over the information I had jotted down on the pile of forms each medical office seems to demand, this new doctor paused and said, “I like your name.” I chuckled a bit as I thanked her and thought to myself that I really didn’t have much to do with my name, it was bestowed upon me. “It sounds like an author” she mused. I was quiet. I needed to ponder that.
A week or so before that, my daughter KT had taken a moment out of her busy college life to call and suggest that I edit a book written by one of our friends. KT’s thoughts were that it would get my creative juices flowing so that I would start writing again. Hmmm…that phone call, along with the constant questions of when I was ever going to blog again, got me thinking. The little stories that I used to write on a near daily basis started swirling around in my head once again.
Then a post popped up in my reader. It was from a blog I had started following a year or two ago when I had participated in a Slice of Life Story Challenge. The challenge is to write a small slice of life every day this month. How can I possibly resist?
So…expect to see a lot of me this month. Let’s just consider it Doctor’s Orders.
