Letting go of all the extraneous stuff so that you can be present on the page can be really hard. I woke up in a bad place this morning. I woke up obsessing about a relationship in my life that no matter what I do it doesn't feel good.
I did some chanting to help shift my energy. I pulled cards from my Tarot and Oracle decks and instantly had helpers and guides at my aid. I danced. I pruned and organized my flower bouquet.
The energy is beginning to flow again; my mind is clear. Inspiration is beginning to percolate. Yes feeling better. Now it is time to write.
A time before beginnings
A time before endings
A time to just be
A time now
Row80 Check In:
As some of you may know I fell down the stairs on Thursday and bruised up my left arm pretty intensely. By the next day my whole body hurt. It felt like I had played racquetball and every muscle was screaming at me. As the days go by I am slowly coming back to normal and feeling better. It put a bit of a crimp in my writing as well as it being a little more difficult to write on the weekends when my honey is home. I will have to make up for it during the week.
- Writing 20 pages - 5000 words per day for Fast Draft and having a completed book by Aug. 9 - Mostly on track, also remembered that I had 17,167 of this story that I originally started in JuNoWriMo that I hadn't been counting in my totals but it is part of the story. That means that my total for the story is actually 41,701 instead of 24,534. Made me feel a little better that my numbers were lower the last few days.
- Posting my Row80 check in at least once a week - Posted last Wed. and today is Sun. Doing great with this one!
- Finally getting my current guest posts written and completed (this may not happen until next month after Fast Draft is completed) Still on back burner
- Using my book on writing, Opening to Miracles - Writing to the Finish Line - How to Kick Start and Sustain Your Writing Process, to complete my Fast Draft novel on Shapeshifters (doesn't have a title yet) then get it published. - Getting back on track as I feel better.
