Can you believe it’s about to be October?

Fall just isn’t the same here in Southeast Alaska as it is down south where I grew up – the gloriously colored trees of Tennessee aren’t really a thing here, and bonfires and hoodies have been happening all summer. October here is mostly rain, rain, and more rain.

But one of the things I’m excited about this coming month is the Write 31 Days challenge! This will be my first year participating. The idea is fairly simple: to challenge myself as a writer by writing on one topic for 31 consecutive days. In the process, hopefully the posts will be interesting to my readers, too.

What’s the topic I’ve chosen to write 31 posts on?

Here’s the title: “31 Longings of a Girl’s Heart”

I’m approaching this topic carefully, so as not to stereotype. I understand that individual women vary greatly, and I don’t intend to generalize by saying every woman simply wants a house and a husband, or to be the cliche “Proverbs 31 woman.” However, there are certain things that the majority of women, as a whole, tend to desire – because it’s how we are created {and yes, you can be certain that a house and husband will appear somewhere in that list!}. As much as we differ in our personalities, callings, interests, and goals, there are certain deep longings that we share in common… longings of a girl’s heart.

So here we go! Will you follow along with me? Feel free to subscribe to receive new posts by email, so you’re sure not to miss one! You can also bookmark this page, as I’ll keep a running list of links to each day’s post here.
