My writing challenges update:
NaNoWriMo: I am not doing well when you look at my link (at top of page), but I am thinking about it. That’s a start, isn’t it? 🙂 So far … zero words written.
PiBoIdMo: It’s day four and I have 9 ideas so far. Tara Lazar has fabulous guests again who have fabulous suggestions to help us with our picture book idea writing. I feel good about it this year.
NaBloPoMo: As you may have noticed, so far I am keeping up with daily blog posts.
Health: The first part of this week is busy for me in other ways, so my writing time is chopped up. Monday – an information education session called Understanding Dementia. It was very helpful, some of it new info for me. Tuesday – a Caregiver Stress Management workshop, which I expect to be more of what I need to hear. Wednesday I have three appointments for myself, including with my naturopath and my reflexologist. They have helped me with health issues, and aided me in regaining and maintaining my health – very important to me. I have to be well in order to better take care of others. It looks as if I will have Thursday and Friday for writing. All this takes place when I have someone present for my respite time. It probably won’t be uninterrupted, though.
Writing: I went through a blah spell with my writing, low on inspiration and energy for it. In early Spring one of my daughters got me into a game to play on my iPhone and it has turned into a vehicle of inspiration for my writing. Each day when I ‘visit’ my ‘neighbours’ I leave a little blurb of 120 characters or less. The response has been generally good, and that has served to keep me going. I found it has even released my creative thinking so that now I’m into these writing challenges it could be of help. My wheels didn’t rust or seize up during the slow time. 🙂 In fact, I am seriously thinking about a story book I can write from what I have been posting there. One never knows from where will come the next inspiration.
That’s all for now. I will post something tomorrow.
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
Watching movies also helps with writing inspiration. Do you have Netflix? Sometimes a good flick and a cup of hot cocoa is all you need to get those gears turning again.
I wish you good health and good productivity!
Welcome to my blog, Millie. No, I don’t have Netflix but I know people who do and they really like it. That may be something I tap into later. I love a good movie. 🙂
Thanks for the good wishes.
You’re welcome, Lynn. Good luck. 🙂
Wow, I’m amazed by all of the challenges you’ve taken on! Wishing you all the best with them =)
Thanks, Ruth. I think I must have been in a delusional space. haha Here’s hoping I can get my novel-writing cap on soon.
Good luck! 😀
