Day Thirty-Six of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Writing Prompt Wednesday – Moonlit

As I journey towards turning “writer” from a self-proclaimed label to professional title, I’ve decided to give myself a focused challenge. Each day, from now until January 11, 2016, I hereby pledge to focus on my writings: novel, screenplay drafts, stage play rewrites, TV pilot scenes, etc. Documenting my progress each day will help keepContinue reading “Day Thirty-Six of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Writing Prompt Wednesday – Moonlit”

Day Twenty-Eight 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”

Sunday SoulJourn: Week Five in My Spiritual Journey

30 August 2015  FINDING THAT CREATIVE SPARK Ever have moments when you feel completely uninspired? I had an entire day of them, which made this week’s Sunday SoulJourn entry significantly more challenging than normal. The tip of my pen rested on the lined paper waiting for inspiration to strike.

Motivational Monday: In the Moment

Beauty surrounds me In the most mundane of moments Calling my name and pleading for attention Do I acknowledge it?   Love dances through the air Waltzing through clouds And touching my cheek in a gentle kiss Can I embrace it?   Music exists even in stillness With the rustle of leaves And melodic callsContinue reading “Motivational Monday: In the Moment”
