#ReadWriteCook2017

What do you want more of in 2017? We want to take 20 minutes every day to
connect with food and words. Join us. Share your stories of reading, writing and
cooking and hashtag them #ReadWriteCook2017 #take20minutes
#CreatePatterns

Do you want to bake your own bread? Cook more at home? Set up regular times
for reading? Cultivating habits is easier with friends, so we invite you to join our
challenge.

Decide what goal you want to focus on, state it in your first post, and show us
again and again how you are creating patterns in your life.
Show us your flour. Snap a shot of the page you’re reading. Show us your
ingredients. People you are sharing meals with.
The rules? None. The suggestions: set aside 20 minutes a day. Choose one
goal. Switch focus after a week, a month, a year – whenever you want to guide
your attentions to another area.

This idea comes from two friends who want to bridge the gap between Brazil and upstate New York, where they used to inspire each other in cooking, writing and photography projects. Photojournalist @Ellie Markovitch (storycooking.com) is
pushing the reset button, returning to her home country, starting a kitchen from
scratch in Rio de Janeiro. Writer @Amy.Halloran, @flourambassador (amyhalloran.net) wants to set a tone for growth, and develop a social structure to support it past the first weeks of the new year.

And talking about friends, here some of the faces of my continued inspiration and support:2016-inspiration

My hubby and daughters, Phyllis, my fellow pea in the pod, Liz a photographer, Celeste my mother, Katrin a chef, Justine a farmer and Amy a writer.

    Focus! I’ve come to the right place since I have such a problem with it. Just a thought will take me away from a project into another. Sometimes I feel that I am going to run into myself….LOL.
    Ellie has always been an inspiration to me, and with her gone makes it harder to focus. I hope this site will bridge that gap. My goal for the new year is to focus on one project at a time. Right now, it is marshmallows and getting them made and sent out. Requests come from as far as TX, where my family lives, to locally at my dentist’s office. With the cold weather, it is a perfect time to share. I wish you were here, Ellie, to give the ‘trimmings’ to.
