Some days it is very easy to get my blog post done. Everything goes as planned. I’m not too busy. The stars are aligned just right. I am feeling creative and the words just flow into the text box. Other days it seems nothing plays out the way I imagined it would. I have way … More Because I Said I Would
I attended service at the spiritual center to which I belong this morning. Then we celebrated my sister’s 31st birthday with lunch at a Mexican restaurant. I then spent some time with my two oldest children, their spouses, and my granddaughter. Beyond that, I have been writing the better part of the day, either in my … More Happy Birthday, Suzanne!
I just spent a significant amount of time drafting a post about an incident that occurred yesterday. I had been reading another blogger’s tips and was inspired to write this post rather than “saving it for later.” Because I had forgotten to create a password for the two-step authentication security setting on my WordPress app … More Frustrated!
I guess I am catching up from an emotional weekend, as I scraped myself out of bed at 10:00 this morning. I managed to get caught up on some email and sort of cook dinner (tuna salad sandwiches and soup). I helped my son with homework and here I am, at the end of the … More Simply Keeping My Commitment
As the day comes to a close, I try to come up with some poetry or prose. Trying to think of something witty, but the words just aren’t there… it’s such a pity. So I guess I’ll retire for the night… get some much needed rest for this writer’s plight. And tomorrow I will try … More Writer’s Plight
I am just getting around to my post today, and it is 11:21 P.M. I don’t like putting things off until the last minute, but I am getting it done nonetheless. I have not been able to get myself back into a routine, so I am flying by the seat of my pants most of … More Under the Wire
I’ve tried to keep my blog posts as positive as I possibly can since my accident back in November. Unfortunately, the denial of my own fears and anxieties has only allowed them to incubate. So it is likely I will posting some more transparent posts, at least for the next week. I have been tasked … More Blogging and Mental Health
As a result of writing daily, I have come to the conclusion that it is time to start that book. (I actually have a few partially written books in my head, so I just need to get them “on paper” and completed.) My daily posts aren’t enough to satisfy my writing addiction anymore. So today’s post … More Blogging: Gateway to Books
As a follow-up to “Writer’s Hands,” and “Writer’s Hands, Part II,” these were taken today. The last in this series, “Writer’s Hands, Part IV,” will follow later this week. My son took this photograph just before I left for the hospital. I removed the splint so you could see the pins. (The stitches were removed … More Writer’s Hands, Part III
Today I finished the process to obtain my coaching certification. I am ecstatic, as this is something I have dreamed of and only recently had the intestinal fortitude to do. I took what could have been a tragedy (traumatic injury) and used it to create something good (Alchemy-turning base metal into gold). … More Alchemy
