trying to make it fit like the old one
This is the first of a month’s worth of small stones for National Small Stone Writing Month by the river of stones project, sister site to the e-zine a handful of stones. I’ve actually never written a stone before, but after lurking about the two blogs, and reading what a small stone is, it felt like a good way to start off the new year, and this blog. Coming from a haiku background, I see a lot of parallels, but in the first several attempts before the new year, found it actually more difficult for me than haiku. While a lot of my stones probably will be haiku, I want to take the chance to experiment as well. A challenge, but should be rewarding. (Especially with NaHaiWriMo in February.) If you feel up for it, do give it a shot. The introductory post and badges for your blogs can be found here.
