Writing has never been something that I loved the way that an artist probably loves to paint or sketch. Writing has always been something like a stone in my shoe. The words are there. And I can ignore them for a while. But, like the stone, they demand acknowledgment at some point.
Thoughts and phrases dance around in my brain. Some get recorded. Some are just lost, at least to me.
Once in a while I have plot lines that seem to pop out of nowhere. But fiction requires conflict and writing that….It seems like so much work.
The things that do end up on the page are the things that seem like connecting threads. They seem important to record and share like life lines for me to remember and also for others who might be going through something similar. And who couldn’t use a lifeline?
There have been so many times throughout my life when an author has shared something personal and reading it helped me to feel less alone.
Now that we’ve reached the halfway mark with this blogging challenge, I’m wondering about my writing… If it’s worthy of peoples time… And who knows? I’ll keep sharing what seems important to me in the moment and hope that it’s useful to someone down the line.
Today I reread one of my older blog posts. I liked the way I ended it. I might start using it more regularly….because it’s true.
**Wishing you a tomorrow filled with everything you need and at least a few things that you want!**
I’m glad you’re here 💜

We are always here for each other. Please keep sharing your words. I can relate to some of your motivation to write. Some write to write. Some write to connect. Some don’t know the difference 🙂

Ram Dass said “We’re all just walking each other home.” That’s what writing is for me. And I guess that’s what reading is too for me….connection, support, community…Thanks for visiting my friend 💜💜

Write, write, write. Write when you feel it, write when it comes, record it always. Do it for you not for others and if someone comes along then all the more joy but do it for you not anyone else. That is why I write, to get my feelings and expressions out cause it feels better for me, if I touch someone else that makes it even better.
PS I enjoy reading your writing.

Thanks for the encouragement! I live with pretty frequent bouts of imposter syndrome. But I feel like I have a book inside of me that wants to come out so that’s why I’m trying to write more regularly… Just to get those mental muscles working! Thanks so much for stopping by and for reading. I so appreciate it!🌺🌹🌺
