I heard it throughout my time in the writing program in college, and I still hear it today. In fact, it's what the author at the book reading I went to a couple weeks ago recommended as well. It's what anyone in the writing world knows and advises: write every day. So that's my goal from here on out for the month of March--to write something on this blog everyday. Some days it might be more than others, but it's my intent to get at least something posted here each day. Today, that means a winter playlist. I've heard birds chirping outside the last few days and even wore a raincoat on March 1st in honor of the new month but then decided that was a bit premature (mainly because I was freezing all the way to the gym and back). These songs say this season to me---cold but almost spring.

Enjoy with some hot chocolate or coffee, and if you don't have a fireplace, wrap yourself up in some quilts, light some candles, and read, knit, eat, talk, or whatever else you love to do.
