Why do you write? What have you learned by facing the page? Did anything surprise you about your reflections this past month?
I decided to be a part of this Think Kit project to see what kind of writing voice I had other than a technical one. The movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” sparked the thought. One of the characters, Evelyn played by Judi Dench, began a blog once she was settled in at the hotel. I wanted to do the same and this project gave me the opportunity.
I have found I have a writing voice and will continue to write as I can. My days are going to be full between what needs to be accomplished at work as well as what I need and want to do at home. However, I will write as I can.
One thing I need to work on over the course of the year is to write about my 25 years with the company I work for. I would like for it to be something memorable not only for me but those who will also be at the dinner celebration. I want them to understand the real me, not the me they believe they know. Having participated over these past 29 days has shown me I will be able to do this.
As I write this 25 year memory, I will share snippets on my blog for those who may be interested. I will request others to read, and comment on what I have written. My life story has taken a long and winding path across this country. Writing about the last 25 years will help to recount my journey.
