I am making a commitment to post a Small Stone every day this January. I’m finding it a fascinating way to catch a moment and hopefully communicate it with integrity. It is also quick and easy, no excuses with internal whinging about getting the ‘ideal situation’ to write, (if such a thing exists), it is simply catching what is.
I’m also going to be posting a photo a day, this may illustrate my writing or I may write the small stone based on my image, I don’t really know yet, this is going to be an adventure!!
If you would like to join me and the ‘Writing your way back home’ community, just click on the image in the side bar and find out more.
Here is how Fiona Robyn describes what Small Stones is all about:
What is a small stone?
A small stone is a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment.
There are no strict rules for what makes a piece of writing a small stone, as there are for forms such as haiku. The process of finding small stones is as important as the finished product – searching for them will encourage you to keep your eyes (and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.
