Last Monday, I wrote about the end of summer. So it seems appropriate that I write about beginnings. School starts today in Michigan. The beginning of another school year. Even though I don’t need to follow that calendar, I’m so aware of it. Who isn’t with all the back-to-school ads?
My daughter takes pictures of the kiddies on the first day of school every year. They each hold a sign proclaiming “1st day of ___ grade” or in grandson’s case for previous years the class he was in at preschool. This year he starts kindergarten. Daughter is very happy since both kids are in the same school now. She also takes their pictures at the end of the school year—same place, different sign.
Beginning and endings. Isn’t that something we all experience? Whether it’s in our personal lives or in our careers, endings happen. As writers, we all know about rejection. The ending of that story with that publisher. Do we cry and never send that story out again? Nope. We begin again.
I saw this on Facebook and thought how appropriate to my topic.
On to new beginnings.
