Well tonight marks the last night that I will write a letter to Audrey from her elf Klutz. On Christmas Eve he will head back to the North Pole, as elves do. I have not missed a single night and now have a collection of letters from her sweet elf. Audrey has learned and done so much because of him. Here are some of the things we did:
Her Dad and I are so proud of her.
What’s funny is that part of the reason I set Klutz up this year was to blog his letters everyday. The reason for that was because I wanted to give myself a writing activity to get me in the consistent habit as exercise for writing my book. But after a while, something magical happened, instead of focusing solely on the Klutz letters and posting them every day, I actually just started writing the book. Instead of the Klutz letters being the primary focus, they continued to serve as a exercise while keeping me connected to sitting down and writing what I have always wanted to.
The book itself is the very one that people will receive when doing Project eMOTION and I am so excited that there will be a first round of eyes to land on it. It’s small and simple. It isn’t done yet, but it’s rolling along.
I wanted to give an update on this final night of Klutz. I know I didn’t quite bring you along for the ride as planned, but as I have been saying lately when writing down my intentions we should always be open to “this or something better”. I opened a door for myself and the something better very much came through. And I am so grateful that it did.
