Today’s photo prompt was “Peace.” I’ll admit, I nearly forgot to do my photo challenge today. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s the first day and I’m already slacking… but I kept forgetting all day that it was actually May!
My picture is truly something that I think of when I think of peace though… Notebooks and Books. I’m a writer and I love notebooks. The notebooks seen in this picture are probably all around 10 years old. But they’re the notebooks that I wrote my fiction in when I was in college and didn’t yet have a handy laptop to use. There are bits and pieces of chapters, brainstorm sessions, doodles, and inspiration in those books and I love to look through them because it’s like going through a scrapbook and revisting my old characters. The books in the picture are a very very small selection of the books I own. I love to read. If I could figure out a way to read and write for a living I’d totally do it. Just like writing, reading is an escape for me and I’m always able to find my peace when I’m doing one or the other.
