I love that the UK has a day dedicated to writing. This makes me happy.
If it ain’t broke…
This has been an intriguing past few days for me. And I mean that in a good way. Mostly, I think it comes down to my realisation that I've fallen in love with writing again. It's a pretty cool feeling, right...when you're doing something that you enjoy so much you lose track of time when … Continue reading If it ain’t broke…
Serendipity comes when least expected
I don't think my son is going to follow in Christiane Amanpour's footsteps, but I do think he did a good job interviewing his grandmother several years ago for a school project. I'd forgotten all about it. With my re-awakened interest in my mother-in-law's story about her boyfriend during WWII, it's a bit of serendipity … Continue reading Serendipity comes when least expected
Progress, but no routine yet
I think things are settling down a bit in my personal life, which means that things can settle down in my writing life. Not that I've gotten any closer to establishing a routine... That's okay, though. Finding a writing routine was easier before my husband lost his job. With him out of the house, it … Continue reading Progress, but no routine yet
Love and War and Letters
I've been re-captured by the story of my mother-in-law and her boyfriend in WWII. His name was Robert Stalker, and he was an American bombardier stationed in Thurleigh, England. I first started hearing this story three or four years ago. Recent discussions with my mother-in-law have reminded me how much I like this story and … Continue reading Love and War and Letters
Just say no…
...to frustration and irritation. The writing challenge I was looking forward to starts today, but I can't log in to my account or see the prompt. Although I am quite frustrated (I mean, I can't stand technical computer-type problems), I'm trying my best not to let it get the best of me. I'm focusing on … Continue reading Just say no…
Time for another ROW80 check-in! Posting to my blog. I have actually posted to my blog, other than a ROW80 check-in, so I'm counting that as a success this week. The goal was to post at least once a week. At some point, I'd like to bump that number up, but for now ... baby … Continue reading ROW80 check-in
Ooo, it's a brand new year! So here's a shiny new post for the new beginning. I usually enjoy the changing of the years, the turning from the old to the new. But last year, at least the last bit, was more difficult than I expected. This has brought me to a point where I'm … Continue reading Happy 2019!
Just keep writing
I've never really been one for New Year's resolutions. I figure that if something is important enough for you to commit to doing then the date shouldn't matter. But I do see the appeal of new beginnings in a new year. Especially this year. For myriad reasons, I want to re-establish my commitment to writing … Continue reading Just keep writing
