Wednesday, September 01, 2021
So working full time has messed with my schedule. I totally thought next week was the first Wednesday in September, not today! Once again I have done no writing, same as August. However, I'm crocheting every day and that gives me a semblance of having "done" something worthwhile (making things for friends and family is so much fun!). My job is worthwhile I know. But I do that for others, not for myself. Anyone who works with children has a worthwhile job. Writing was fun and worthwhile in the beginning, for me. When it turned into a way to "earn money" and be a "real" writer, I began to hate it (the marketing really). So, now, since I've taken a break from writing, I am returning to thoughts of my current work in progress and listening to where the story/characters want to take me. This is the part of writing I LOVE. So, hopefully soon, I will be able to indulge in continuing my writer's journey. I wish you all well on your own writing journeys and, meanwhile, we are happy to have our dream retaining wall terraces going in so I can plant more! Happy end of Summer everyone!

Happy August Everyone. I have been working full time this summer and not at home, so have done no writing to speak of . Imagine sad face here.

I haven't been writing. It's harder to forgive myself for not writing. But I have been in my garden creating new stories there, with plants. I think of my WIP and know I will get back to it soon, but in the meantime I must play in the dirt. I must arrange my beds and make sure I do whatever I need to for my plants to thrive, and make their own stories. This is necessary for my sanity right now. I have gone back to work in a "day" job, and will work most of the summer, to make up for last year when I couldn't work (outside the home). Last year I wrote and hit my goal of getting my novel "Rain" out before Christmas. I am very happy about that. So, until I take up the proverbial pen, my spade will be my quill, and I will smile each time I look to my garden/yard and see what I have helped nature to create. I wish all of you a happy summer, one where we can get OUT and literally breathe again. See you in July!
Please visit our IWSG co-hosts this month and thank them for being there for us all,
Enjoy my flowers. They are the stories I am telling right now!
