There are times when all you can do is get through the responsibilities in your life. Taxes, family, graduations, writing, work, vacation planning, trying to be a good person, just to name a few. Then I remember how lucky I am and that thought alone makes it all easier. As much as possible, I write down snippets, words, moments that stand out, that challenge, that mean something. When I get time, I will add them into my WIP in some way.
That is writing.
That is living.

MANICURE & PEDICURE
A wonderful way to unwind the mind and the body, and even better when I get to go with my daughter. I’m ready to write.

This morning I was stuck in traffic on the 5 Freeway, a typical work day for Angelenos. Usually I’d be upset but today I listened to an audiobook and brain stormed my WIP. The time I sat in once place helped me work out an issue involving my MC. Instead of getting upset and flustered, I arrived at work hopeful and excited that I’ll give my character a clearer sense of who she is and why she is on her journey. Today, I appreciated sitting on the 5 Freeway. Traffic isn’t always bad, it’s all depends on how you look at it.

A journey begins with the first step just as writing begins with the first word. It’s a slow, deliberate process but if you write every day you’ll reach the end, accomplish a goal, possibly get published. It’s what we dream of.
“It’s your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.” — Rumi
