Writer Wednesday: Morning Pages

A number of years ago I came across a book about writing by Julia Cameron. The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life has been one of those resources/sources of inspiration that I’ve turned to time and time again. With writing exercises throughout the book, it’s been helpful in getting my... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Happy New Year!

Any writing resolutions set for 2019? I’m not much of a resolution setter myself; I prefer measurable goals. Granted, you can turn your resolutions into goals, so they are kind of similar/the same thing, but not always. 🙂 Like, I can resolve to never eat another cupcake again, but if I don’t actually put a...

Writer Wednesday: NaNoWriMo Update #3

It happened yesterday: over 52,000 words for the win! It was a relief to get it done before Thanksgiving. And I've gotten one-fourth of the second book finished, so the next goal will be to get to half-way before November is over. I am 'plansting' the second book (part planning, mostly flying by the seat... Continue Reading →

Ahem, keyboard.  Behind a little at this point, but the battle is not lost. Most of the words came last night during our monthly Writer’s Block. Writer’s... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Final Day of Prep

Ah, can you smell it in the air? November is near. 🙂 That means tomorrow the pursuit begins in earnest. No more prepping, no more excuses, only writing. Serious, intentional writing. Well, maybe not always serious (you need to have some fun along the way), but certainly intentional. It’s the only way you make it... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Update #2

As of Tuesday I have eleven and a half chapters completed. We’re going away this weekend and I won’t have much time for writing in the next couple of days, so I’m pounding out what I can. At this point I don’t think I’ll have all of the first book written before November 1st rolls... Continue Reading →

Monday Musings: Rest

This weekend was overall uneventful. That's not to say we didn't have a good weekend, or that we sat around doing nothing. Friday we spent time with my husband's family, Saturday with my family, and then with his extended family on Sunday. There was some work sprinkled throughout, but nothing back breaking or mind bending.... Continue Reading →
