November Letters

Dear Early Mornings, 
Sometimes I wish we had never met, but most of the time I enjoy our friendship. You help make me a better person.
Wishing for a nap.
Dear Match Sticks, 
After I light my candle I chew on you until you’ve become a hundred loose little splinters. I’m not sure why I find you so much fun, but somehow I think better when you’re around. 
A quirky writer.
Dear November, 
You’re one of my favorite months of the year, especially when I decide to do NaNo. All the scurrying around, writing, gray skies and candles… All the curling up with books, hot meals gathered around with my family and anticipating the first snow of the year. 
This time you’ve decided to do things a little differently and even though it’s almost Thanksgiving I’m still cutting the grass, still taking my shoes off when I swing, still keeping my windows wide open and barely needing a sweatshirt. 
It’s different, but I like it. 
An autumn-girl at heart.
Dear Commenters, 
You seriously make me so happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m working at answering all your comments. Please, know I really do appreciate you. 
A slow-commenting blogger.
Dear Fifth Draft, 
I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed taking a break from you for NaNo. I’m so tired of you I don’t think I’ve thought of you for more than 30 seconds at a time all month long. It’s been glorious. 
Happily working on a first draft.
Dear Music, 
My life would be quite different without you. You inspire me, energize me, help me focus and aid me in working faster. You remind me that creativity does make a difference. Thank you. 
A fellow creative person.
Dear Maps, 
You’re one of my favorites. You’re beautiful, interesting, mysterious and exciting. You challenge me to dream big and embrace adventures. 
I want to visit everywhere.
Dear Blog Posts, 
I don’t hang out with many of you any more. I guess I go in spurts, cause I used to devote so much of my time to you. I do have to say, those posts I do still read… Yikes. You’re brilliant. You make me laugh and think deeper and I learn and see from new perspectives. Keep up the amazing work. It might be hard, but I think it’s worth it. 
An impressed and amused amateur blogger. 
Dear Water, 
I am so glad you exist. I still don’t know how to relate to those people who don’t drink huge amounts of you. 
Dear Birds, 
It makes me so happy to hear you singing early in the morning. Keep up the good work. You brighten my day. 
Maybe someday I’ll join you.
