April Moon (in all its splendid imperfection)
So you know how I mentioned on Friday how I'd been working on a little something (whose progress was stymied by a power outage)? Well, I can finally share it with you here.
I'm calling it April Moon. It's a reflective writing challenge in the vein of Reverb (and August Moon) and it kicks off in two days' time, on Tuesday 15 April 2014.
You can find everything you need to know HERE.
And why do I mention splendid imperfection?
Because I am not a last minuter and yet here I am, launching two days before starting.
Because my dear friend Cam (aka CurlyPops) is, as I write, battling computer troubles to create her trademark gorgeous blog button designs and it's not yet clear when they will be ready.
Because I have more than a little trepidation contacting people who participated in Reverb13 to let them know I will be using the same email list for April Moon (what if they get put off by the presumption... and the spam?).
Because life with an almost-six-week-old baby is somewhat unpredictable and I am not sure exactly when I am going to have the chance to read/comment on/tweet/retweet everyone's posts, like I usually do.
Because I am also secretly wondering -- as, let's face it, I always do -- whether anyone will actually participate.
When are circumstances every perfect? And if I waited for a time when I felt completely confident in what I was doing, well, I'd likely never start anything at all.
So here it is. I'm offering up a piece of my self to you. It's splendidly imperfect. And I think, regardless of the traffic, I will be very proud of it.
And I really hope I'll see you there, in the light of that moon.
