Where have the words gone?

I'm beginning to think my Morning Pages routine has usurped my Blog in terms of where I go to process my life. Used to be I'd post my inner ramblings (edited of course) here whenever the words demanded release, or I needed to "think". Since entering the 8th month of daily Morning Pages, I've noticed … Continue reading Where have the words gone?

If you could see inside my soul…

Here are just a few of the items you'd find: a note pad and an ornately carved ink pen with a fine tip. The ink inside would randomly change color to cover all the spectrum of the rainbow. a seven year old playing, skipping, reading, but mostly day dreaming of all kinds of things an … Continue reading If you could see inside my soul…

2:33 AM – Deja Vu

Hey. This post is sponsored by our friends at Insomnia International, the Migraine Fairy Brigade, and Excedrine. Guess who's been awake since 2:30 AM? And if we take a stroll through the archives, I'd be willing to bet there are at least four other posts with similar times in their titles. Sigh. Since I'm up, … Continue reading 2:33 AM – Deja Vu

21 of 40 – I want to scream…

...to rage against the heavens, my language and attitude born of hell. I want to curse the day, to use my ire to rend the sky, letting lighting strike, the thunder shaking the very core of this Earth's foundations. I want to abdicate responsibility, to treat others as they have treated me with not a … Continue reading 21 of 40 – I want to scream…

11 of 40 – At a Loss

"If thine own eye offends thee, pluck it out."  As spoken by Roddy McDowell in the classic film, The Legend of Hell House. Anyway, the idea behind the quote today is that there are a couple of behaviors I have that block me from my goals, from my desires. I'm sure you have one or … Continue reading 11 of 40 – At a Loss

10 of 40 – One Step Closer to 50

Sigh. I am on the edge of 50.  I remember as a kid imagining what I'd be like at 21, but beyond that, I don't think I built any kind of fantasies, goals, or images of life beyond that golden age. Yet, here I sit (much to my health's dismay), twenty-eight years / sixty pounds … Continue reading 10 of 40 – One Step Closer to 50

Hey WordPress - put my reader view back the way it was!!!!  Stop @#$%#%ing around with stuff. God Bless Us EVERYONE, why can't you leave well enough alone??!!! Still infinitely more user friendly than Blogger (@_@), but why...why do I need to have one person's posts grouped together instead of being able to read down … Continue reading 3 of 40

Camp NaNo begins and it's off to my back files to dig out my next manuscript for release prep. I tend to rebel during the Camps and will start with a piece that's partially written and vow to add 50K words to what I've already done. So it's still a 50K challenge, I'm just starting … Continue reading 2 of 40

Don’t know if I can do 40

Good friend of mine is doing a 40 day blog post deal as a way to rekindle her writing fire. I follow the Artist's Way and do three hand written pages in the mornings -most often right after I wake up, but always before 9:30 am.  Feels more genuine if I stick to a deadline. … Continue reading Don’t know if I can do 40
