Writing Tip — Just For Fun

blizzardw-1025002_1280This poem was inspired by John Updike’s poem about January in A Child’s Calendar. Although the poem may sound depressing, I like January. I enjoy winter and my birthday as well as the birthdays of all my kids are in this month.

How does January make you feel?

Happy Thanksgiving!
