Welcome to the 17th
I can’t believe it’s the end of August! It’s been fun to track the writing inspiration as it has struck me. I think it’s good to be conscious of what effects us so that we can be proactive in the future.Maybe instead of waiting for inspiration to reveal itself it’s a better idea to search it out, slip a lasso over its neck, and drag it along.
As this week comes to a close I realized that more than anything else, I’ve been inspired by the story I’m writing. It’s what compels me forward, makes me shut off the TV, and eat Cheerios out of the box for dinner. I’m eager to see how it gets to The End, and the only way to do that is to write it.
I’m fortunate right now, and I know at some point there will be a rough patch where I think it’s all a hopeless, stupid mess. Maybe then I should scurry back to the blog and remember what kept me going in August.
I’m trying to figure out how the blog will best serve me and all of you in the future…so there’s more to come, that’s for sure. But what that will be, is ups for grabs at the moment.
Sometimes I miss the mommy blogging days!
