Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Balancing Act - Row80 Check in 4

Everything was going so well up until last Saturday. That is when we discovered my partner's grandmother was in the hospital and was scheduled for surgery on Monday. 

I must say that the stress and sleeplessness of having a loved one in the hospital is quite tiring and it is making me feel old. I am usually the one that stays with loved ones at the hospital during their stay and at this point in my life I am feeling ready to hand it to the younger generation. 
Back in the day I could stay up all night reading, writing or taking care of a sick loved one and still semi function the next day. Now... I feel like death warmed over if I don't get a decent amount of sleep at night. Needless to say I have pared down my writing to the bare minimum of doing my 750words.com everyday and working a little on my stories and blogs here and there. 

Last Friday I had posted the Writing Experiment and I am happy that I was able to find time to finish the first scene and get it out to those that wish to share in this journey with me. I am looking forward to reading their submissions tomorrow and making the final decision on who will be working with me on this project.

Until things change that is about all I can handle at the moment. I am determined to continue this wondrous writing life so I am taking it one day at a time.


  1. What a great philosophy you have written... and yes, sometimes all bets are off. I remember when my brother was ill and spent months in the hospital ~ my ordinary life stopped right there!

    Sending lots of love and hopefully, higher word counts in the days to come! Hope to see you around #wordmongering when the time is right!

    1. I am definitely looking forward to higher word counts. I have enjoyed it too much to stop now. She is doing very well so we are hoping she will be leaving the hospital in the next few days.

      Thanks for all of your love and support!



Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
