Lent, Writing, And Possibilities

Tomorrow for those of the Eastern Orthodox Christian world is the beginning of Lent.  For those of the Protestant and Western rites, tomorrow is Palm Sunday.  To those friends of mine in the Western Rite and Protestant I say have a wonderful, blessed Easter!

Every year I try to come up with something different to do for Lent.  Sometimes I succeed with everything on my Lenten list and sometimes only just part of the things I want to do.  Regardless of whether or not I do “everything” on the list or not, I always learn something and my faith usually deepens because of the Lenten practices.

This year I am going to try and do something a little differently:  I am going to concentrate a good portion of my blogging efforts on The Solar Powered Turtle while not completely ignoring The Kentucky Mountain Girl News.  I am doing more than this, of course, but this portion of my world is one I’ve not exactly concentrated on before.

One of the reasons I chose this particular goal is The Solar Powered Turtle has been sitting dormant for a number of months.  This is mostly due to the fact I forget about it because of the writing I’m doing on a given day and don’t plan it into the writing schedule.  I am hoping with this Lenten goal it will become a habit to post an article there at least once a week and more here, of course.  (Lately I’ve been neglecting KMGN in favor of story writing.  This isn’t bad, really, except for the fact I feel guilty about it and want to change my blogging habits back into a more productive one.)

Since The Solar Powered Turtle will actually receive some attention, I’ll make sure and put links here on The News in case some of you would like to read along with my Lenten journey this year.


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
