DAY 49: World-Building Idea I wasn’t in much of a writing mood today – didn’t even take my notebook to work. After a busy day and evening, I sat at the dining room table and picked up my pencil. The words chugged out like a train out of steam. I kept going, determination more importantContinue reading “Day Forty-Nine of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey”
Day 46 of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Deflating the Holiday Spirit – I enjoy holiday decor, with one overwhelming exception.
DAY 44: Writing Ahead Social media hashtags have us looking back on Thursdays, but today I’m looking ahead! I spend the majority of my work breaks writing. I come home and continue writing. Before I visit the dream state, I write a little bit more. In the past five days I wrote over 8,000 wordsContinue reading “Day Forty-Four of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey”
Between the 111 Day Writer’s Journey and National Novel Writing month I’m writing to my heart’s content. Are you?
DAY 40: Sunday SoulJourn – Fear Itself There are certain fears which are understandable – like arachnophobia and fear of heights. How about the ones that go unseen yet are equally impactful?

DAY 35 I didn’t make much time to focus on my writings today. However, I wasn’t about to call it a night without getting something on paper. A slew of random phrases later and I asked myself a question to which I do not know the answer: Do I fear failure, success, or a littleContinue reading “Day Thirty-Five of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Safety First”
DAY 31: Jewelry Making Time My attention the last few days was focused on party preparation. Yesterday (Day 31), I picked up some supplies and went right to work designing and assembling bracelets to give as door prizes. I finalized my grocery shopping list and went to bed early, knowing I’d be up shortly afterContinue reading “Days 31 & 32 of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey”
DAY 28: Garden Inspiration I don’t have a green thumb (perhaps a purple one when I hit it with a hammer by accident), but I do love gardens. I can’t tell you the names of most types of flowers or herbs, or what perennial means, yet they inspire my artistic soul. That fascination with gardensContinue reading “Day Twenty-Eight of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey”
DAY 27: Motivational Monday poem Birthed from a natural home The rosebud makes an entrance With care from the sun, rain, and green thumb The flower known as delicate Can defend itself The thorns guard the petals From those who might cause harm While vivid colors and vibrant aromas Enhance the surroundings Flowers bloom asContinue reading “Day Twenty-Seven of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey”
