DECISONS, DECISIONS, DECISONS.
“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.” ~ Unknown
Life is all about decisions. The same is true when we write. WE create our worlds from characters to the plot. The idea blossoms into a draft and then into a finished product, the entire journey filled with thousands of decisions. Don’t be afraid to make them. Have fun with them. The decisions we make are the creative juice that make our writing rich and luscious.
“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Some days there’s nothing…
Today I give in to the silence. I stopped fighting it. The demands have ceased. The frustration gave way to acquiescence. Today I let go. In the quiet I will find truth and maybe some beauty.

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.
