Kaspa & Fiona have taken over my blog for today, because they need our help. I have introduced them before as the founders of the writing network Writing Our Way Home, as well as the sponsors of “a river of stones” in January and July, when everyone is invited to pay a little closer attention to the world around them and write about it every day for the month, posting the stones to share with others. And that brings us to:
They are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world through writing. They are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of June.
For their fantasy wedding present, they are asking people across the world to write them a ‘small stone’ and post it on their blogs, or on Facebook, or Twitter.
A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more about small stones here.
If you’re willing to help, we’d love you to do things:
1) Re-post this blog on your own blog any time before June the 18th and give your readers a chance to hear about what we’re doing. You can simply copy and paste the text, or you can find the html here.
2) Write us a small stone on our wedding day whilst we’re saying our vows and eating cake, post it on your blog, and send it to us.
We also have a July challenge coming soon, when we’ll be challenging you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.
Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.
Kaspa & Fiona
I’m back. If you have any questions, do ask and if you think anyone would enjoy joining in, send this along to them or click one of the buttons below.
I shall see you all on Friday for the week’s roundup; Tuesday for playing with the diamante form, which I think you will enjoy — plenty of scope for play; and Thursday for the last group of words that clutter.
Happy writing, everyone.
