Lots to Share

I have limited time this morning, but I thought I’d take a moment and share with you. I’ve had a lot going on and we are currently in the process of an office makeover. I am so excited about that! If you hop over to my Facebook page you can see a few photos I’ve posted so far. We’ve a ways to go and prayers for my patients and my husband as he deals with my lack of them would be greatly appreciated.

My current work in progress is finally running smoothly. Union (I haven’t fully settled on her last name yet) is having herself quite the adventure and I can not wait to share it with you! I will be sharing a few snippets soon, but until then I’d like to leave you with a poem. As I’ve been cleaning I have found some of my past writings – it has been an adventure just to read them and so I have decided to share them with you.

We will start with this first poem. I hope you enjoy it and we will talk again soon. Have a blessed day!

Sometimes

Sometimes, I do not say what might be on my mind at that time.

Sometimes, I want to talk and hear the sound of your voice in my ear.

Sometimes, My feelings go a little unspoken.

Sometimes, I want to cry for the relief of crying.

Sometimes, I want to laugh louder than the angels sing.

Sometimes, I want to walk and breathe in the cool air.

Sometimes, I want to kiss and feel your lips on mine.

Sometimes, I want to lay with you just to be held..

…and Sometimes, when we’re apart like tonight with the thought of you heavy on my mind

Sometimes, I simply want to say I love you.


My Book Therapy

Novel Academy. While living in England a few years ago I got involved with My Book Therapy, a program created by author Susan May Warren to coach aspiring authors. I was working on writing a book. I’ve always been working on a book, always. It’s that thing I want to accomplish so much and the same thing procrastinate about over and over. I am constantly in my own way.

Take today for example. I knew I needed to sit down and catch up on some classes through Novel Academy – I try to do several at a time. I also knew I needed to do some of my own writing. What I ended up doing is cleaning the house and going to the movies with my son. I hate vacuuming but I do love going to the movies with my son. Here’s the secret, writing is hard work and sometimes the mood isn’t there. You can’t wait around for the mood to show up either or you’ll never accomplish your goal. Trust me, I know.

I did knock off 2 classes from Novel Academy today and I’m currently awake, planning to knock out a little more tonight while my home is silent. I work best in silence and it drives my family crazy! I’m not one for white noise. If the radio is on, I’m actually listening to it and that is difficult to do if you are writing because then you end up writing the song lyrics! If the T.V. is on, I’m actually watching it. I do not multi-task well.

I have learned so much from My Book Therapy, past and present included. I am LOVING Novel Academy. It is full of helpful information and I find myself thinking of new things for my current wip (work in progress) as I go along. It’s like one massive brainstorming party!

I have some assignments coming up – writing ones of course and it was recommended we keep a notebook/journal for them. I will, but I think I’ll also post each here as well. Perhaps, it will be something you enjoy – at least I hope so.
