Upping the ante

I'm going to set myself a personal challenge. Not only will I write a haiku a day as part of NaHaiWriMo and publish it here but I will also write another which I will not post online. You'll just have to trust me on this.


It starts tomorrow! NaHaiWriMo!

Noticing things

Sometimes writing the kind of thing I post here comes ridiculously easily, sometimes it becomes impossibly difficult. I'm not sure of all the reasons but partly it's about a loss of focus. Being too busy. Sometimes I need to slow down to make things come back into focus. There's a plan afoot for a group of people to write a haiku a day during February and I'm hoping that taking part in that might help me get the focus back. I want to start noticing things again, not let them all go by in a blur of busyness.
