I now realize that I’m having difficulty keeping up with my schedule.
I have put waaaaaaayyyy too much on myself and I can’t keep up the pace. So I’m rearranging things before I get frustrated to the point on inaction.
I’m still going to post mini essays/paragraphs about the different writing modes, however, I will need to do this on a bi-monthly basis rather than weekly.
At first I thought of this as a failure. Now I realize that it isn’t a failure to know what your limits are in life. Not that my life is limited and my creativity is definitely not limited. It’s merely the fact that I have more enriching my life now than just my writing.
So, I am now going to post articles/mini essays/paragraphs (whichever one you’d like to call it) on a bi-monthly schedule. I am enjoying the process of writing within a certain style/mode and do not want to just drop the whole project.
I can feel the relief now that I’m not putting so much on myself. I guess I do that often. At least I realized it and can now move in a good forward direction again.
Lesson learned Universe. lesson learned.
Have a wonderfully great weekend!
p.s. Or you can just have the weekend that you have.
Well It seems I failed to correctly schedule yesterday’s post. I twas supposed to be the final copy of the descriptive mode writing. It was indeed a good lesson in paying attention to what I’m doing at the moment.
You see, I scheduled it for the wrong date and that is the reason why there was post on Wednesday. I do apologize for that little snafu. Lesson learned.
Anyway, here is the post that should’ve been here yesterday.
I sit by his crib for hours just watching him breath and wondering if the twitching is in reaction to a dream or something else. His nurse comes by every thirty minutes to check on him and write down the information on his chart attached to the end of his crib.
Reaching into his crib I touch his small hand. Soft and yielding, yet there is an inner strength there that I know is building. Waking up he grasps my hand. Each tiny finger wrapping around my hand and our eyes meet for the first time. The world around us hushes and we are the only two in this place. The only thing that matters here in this moment is the bond that being created.
Then just as quick the moment fades and the incessant clicking, beeping and whirring of machines steals back in to shatter that peace. I want my touch to heal him so that we can go home to begin our new life path. I know that is not possible. Fighting back the tears I kiss his little hand and tuck it back under the blanket, making sure not to dislodge the IV tubes and wires.
This is just day one and I wonder how many days it’ll be before I can hold him, snuggle him close and let him know just how much I already love him.
Good Morning Monday! How are you today?
Me? I’m doing just fine with a touch of goodly.
Staying on schedule (so far) with everything and today is promising to keep the goodliness going.
I know it’s bit dreary in the Ohio valley area but It’s inspiring me to sit at the keyboard and bang out a few more revisions on the book. Normally dreary days make me want to snuggle up with a good book (or e-book) and read the day into oblivion. Today, however is different.
Maybe it’s a renewed sense of purpose with my writing, it could be the photos I’m editing, or maybe it’s that the house is quiet and the sound of my fingers tap-tapping on the keyboard is creating some kind of cosmic event in my writer’s brain that if I don’t let it loose on something creative it will create its own black hole and drag me into a parallel universe where everyone hangs on the edge of the next word to see I will write next…….
Did I mention that my writing side is on overdrive lately? ;)
Nahhhhh! It’s just me doing what I love to do – write.
Here’s to your Monday being most fine with a touch of goodly! (imagine me lifting my coffee mug in a toast to you)
Make your Monday magical or at the least fun.
Yesterday I forgot to mention when I’m starting my five-week writing project. Since January is already filled, I will start the five-week project in February.
I’m setting aside blocks of time for writing this year. I feel that a set schedule will help me stay on track to accomplish my goals and actually finish the book I’m working on as well as the various monthly writing projects.
Project talk aside….
Day two of the new year is looking promising. I have a new area set up for writing that I feel will make me more comfortable while writing. My new spot includes a window so I can see outside instead of just looking at a wall. It’s not a spectacular view but I can see trees so that’s a plus.
How is day two treating you? How are you treating yourself?
p.s. I’m going to write one thing everyday on my blog.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything here that I feel like a newbie in the blog-o-sphere.
There has been (and still is) a lot going on around in my life, my head, my writing, etc…..
I have not forgotten my blog but I did have to put it on the back burner again until family life settled a bit. The dust has not completely settled but at least things are starting to look up a little.
I can see the light light at the end of the tunnel and I’m hoping it’s not a train.
The bad news – my posting will be limited. The Good news – I’ll post new poetry, writing, life insights, and or photography here once week at the minimum at least until the middle of August. By that time more dust will have settled and the air will indeed smell sweeter.
Look for some fireworks soon, In the form of photos and maybe a video.
Have a great Monday and a wonderful week.
