IWSG May Day May Day!

IWSG


Once upon a time there was a woman who once was a little girl who loved to make up stories. She liked to spend time alone daydreaming, and sometimes writing those daydreams down. Her mind liked the puzzles, putting the pieces in place, trying them here or there till they fit, and the emotion they could bring forth in her. In the meantime, she grew up and went about her daily life and most of the time loved the things she did. But at night she would always “day” dream herself to sleep, and so was more or less content. Then a new phase came and she was able to take the time to put those dreams down on paper every day and she was very happy.
Now another phase in her “real” life has begun and though she continues to “day” dream a lot, real life is teaching her new skills and what priorities really are, so the words don’t make it to the paper the way they have before and she frets about this.
Because this woman has now taken on a part time job to help her family until the house they are trying to sell finds its new owners. Real life does this sometimes and that’s okay. It gets in the way of the “day” dreams and puts them on hold. So the way this woman is looking at the new skills she is learning in this new phase is that they will only help to enhance the “day” dreams and make them more real and believable and emotional when she finally gets to put them on paper. “To every thing… there is a reason… turn turn turn… and a purpose…

 Here are photos of spring screaming in its enthusiasm!

  4. I often feel like that girl! A great writer once told me to never resent the life part of the process, it's where the stories come from. Even when we can't write, we are absorbing.

  5. Beautiful colors in the photos, Lisa! I'm curious about one of your last names, Collard. It is the closest one by an English writer I have seen to my name "Collaert". Any idea about the "roots"?

    It is annoying when real life gets in the way of our writing schedule, isn't it? When I finally find a routine, I hate that it has become a "boring routine" and when that routine gets broken by family commitments, like now, taking care of elderly in-laws, I want it back and am frustrated by not having time to write! Soon... :-) Liesbet @ Roaming About – A Life Less Ordinary

    1. Family name that is from England via France from what we've heard! I know, right? about the "routine". Funny silly humans, never satisfied!

  6. I consider all the daydreams in my head to be essential parts of writing. It sure would help if I could find the time to type them all into a computer though. Maybe tomorrow...

  7. Beautiful spring photos! I love seeing everything come to life right now. Each day there is progress and more colors.

    I know that my job prevents me from writing as much as I'd like, but I know that my income is needed. Good luck with your job! Who knows what kinds of stories it will spark. :)
