I’m a woman who’s old enough to know that if you want to master a skill, it takes practice, practice, practice. Unfortunately, I resist the regular practice of anything, even though everything I value demands it: writing, public speaking, playing guitar, feng shui, meditation, yoga ….
My problem: how to propel myself towards a writing practice? WordPress to the rescue!! Pontificate publicly and prolifically on a blog — which I’ve now been doing since April 2008. I love words, especially ones that begin with the letter P. By limiting my daily practice to P words, the task has become more manageable and fun. If you don’t think P is a fun letter, be sure to watch the Muppets sing about P.
To get up to speed quickly on 365PWords, check out:
- Why P? describing why I started this blog and why I’m focusing on words beginning with P.
- All about the letter P – about the phonetic attributes of the letter P and why I’m excluding certain words that technically begin with P but just don’t turn me on.
- Or, perhaps most expediently, you can click on the category “P-Why?” and all these explanations will come up. Read from the bottom up.
Please please please, proffer your comments. I promise to respond.
Here goes. You’re welcome to join the fun.
PS. In my working life I’m a color and feng shui consultant at Joyful Spaces in the Portland/Vancouver metro area.
