I’ve quietly started the Ultimate Blog Challenge again this July. I guess I say “quietly” because I loudly announced it when I started the October 2018 one and then quickly fell off the Blog Writing wagon. I was struggling with a tooth infection (unbeknownst to me until late November) that caused me to have no focus or energy or really any interest in anything. THAT is a good (not good) story for another time!
Now I am feeling back to my usual chipper, sassy self and have the brain power and energy to participate. Yay Me!!!
As always, my goal has been to create that daily writing habit again.
Participating in a Challenge keeps me on track and Accountable.
I feel this time my Writing will branch out into the MORE that I’ve been wanting to create in my life.
I recently ran across Jeff Brown’s Writing Your Way Home 6-week Writing Course that I have been niggled at to take in years past each time I’ve seen it posted. It begins mid-August and I am going to do it this time!!! YIKES and YAY!!!
I’ve always had a love of writing. Mind you, not typically for you, but for me. I’m kinda private that way!
I’ve Journaled since I was 6.
I’ve written letters since I was 8 and stamps were 8 cents (1978). I still enjoy writing them and feel they are a lost art. I type about as fast as I think so emailing works great these days! But there is still SOMETHING about taking a pen to paper that speaks to me.
I’ve always had an array of notebooks for various writings. I’ve written over 550 poems, 1 Rap in college (1989), and 1 Song (2014). Yes, these need to be published!!! I recently met a tourist a few weeks ago, an amazing 23-year-old rapper and we talked about collaborating! That got the wheels spinning!
All that to say, I have things that need to be shared with the World. I do not know how they will all be received but I don’t feel that is the concern. I am really feeling urged and drawn to doing the Sharing part. Let the chips fall where they may!
WRITE and ROAR!!!
