Let's Write!

I suppose it's rather hypocritical of me to put this sort of post together right now, as I'm going to keep this short and sweet, and I'm not planning on doing any other writing at the moment... But here it goes!

Today I plan to go on an outing with my mom and a friend, and I'm hoping this will lead to some beautiful pictures for tomorrow's hike! So, that's kind of my main focus today rather than writing.

However, I encourage you if you have some time to enjoy the lovely scenery of our virtual Camp Humility and maybe let it inspire you to compose a poem or add another scene to your WIP or write a short story. Tonight at the campfire (which might be kind of late depending on when I get back, but you can check in tomorrow, as well!), I'm hoping we'll have some sharing time. =)

I participated in what is called a #wordwar on Twitter recently with a couple of friends, which was about a 45-minute writing session, with the person writing the most words during that time being crowned the winner of the "word war." Afterwards we shared our favorite line (or more) from the writing we had just done. I'd love if sometime today we can squeeze in some writing, and then tonight at the campfire we can share our favorite lines. I'll even throw in an extra entry to the giveaway if you participate! ;)

Also, if we're not already "friends" on Twitter, and if you have a Twitter account, I'd love to meet up with you there (I'm @SeasonsHumility.) Maybe we can do some more of these #wordwars or #1K1HR (1,000 words in 1 hour) to help motivate each other to just sit down and write! (Huge thanks to Krissi Dallas and Allison Duke for introducing me to #wordwars and for allowing me to join ya'll the other day!)

Well, I hope you all are enjoying Camp Humility so far, and I hope you have a beautiful day! See you later around the campfire!

(My mom took the picture of the dogwood flowers in Grants Pass, Oregon, when we stopped there on our way home from graduation. Aren't they gorgeous?)

I'll enjoy everyone else's writing since I am not a writer :) Love the picture of the dogwood! I think flowering trees are just beautiful. Around here the first to bloom are Bradford pear trees and then the Redbuds. I love the colors! I am enjoying Camp Humility. Have a wonderful time with your mother today!

Beautiful photo of dogwoods! They are our provincial flower here in BC Canada.
I'm looking forward to your pictures from your hike. Hope it's a nice day for you. :)

Julie,

I did have a wonderful time with my mom and friend today - thank you! :)

I'm glad you ended up participating in the writing after all - that was creative to think of using a part of your review! ;)

I love flowering trees, as well! So pretty. :)
