I sit at my writing desk and stare out the window.
I realize that today is August 1.
This is not my favorite month. So many hard times in my life have happened in August that I always have a little trepidation when it comes around. I take a deep breath and already wish the month away. I hold on tightly, expecting bad things to come but really hoping that they don’t.
I have to admit it, I just don’t like August very much.
Last year, I wrote sort of an ode to why I hate August. It’s very tongue in cheek and so I thought it would be fun to post it today.
I am taking a writing hiatus in August so I won’t return to writing until Blog Fridays resume in September. So until then, breathe in the waning days of Summer. Enjoy the heat and the sweat for the breezes of Fall are just right around the corner.
I will be spending time with dear friends, visiting Volcano and hopefully enjoying some time at the beach for Summer is my favorite season and it’s going by way too fast!
See you in September, my friends.
Here’s my ode to August: http://writingjen.com/2011/08/page/7/
