Write Every Day …

“… the Muse insists. Don’t skip a day no matter how you’re feeling, no matter how many wars your country is fighting, no matter how many tornadoes are heading your way. Crawl into your storm cellar and pick up a pen. If you can’t think of anything to say, write the word God again and again. If you don’t believe in God, write the word dog. Everyone believes in dogs.”

(“Sy Safransky’s Notebook,” The Sun, July 2011)

Yes, I’m going to attempt to do this again this year. I lost myself in 2016, overwhelmed by the politics and changes in my life. I refuse to let this year control me and my emotions, my life and my writing. And to that end I’ve joined an online journaling group, I’ve spent the most of yesterday making my very first “Smashbook” and OMGs! It was a blast to create uninhibited. Just paint, fold, crease, write, whatever the Muse gives you. Yes, it was difficult for me. You all know I’m a perfectionist with everything I do. Pictures will be posted once the exterior of the book is dry and I can finish adding the embellishments.

Yep, I am looking forward to this year and all the challenges and blessings coming my way.

I am Vickie, but known by many names, wife, mother, friend, BITCH! And each title I more than deserve. I have been defying description for more than half my lifetime. I occasionally have my sanity, although my circle of friends might disagree with that; I’m a mix of opposites, random, different and unconventional. I’m a self taught know it all and even though I can admit I really don’t know everything, I do know enough to carry on a conversation with most anyone. Some call me mouthy, I freely speak my mind…I do NOT tolerate BS. I’m a wife, Mom, Abi, Witch, eclectic, free-thinking, Priestess in training, wanna be gardener, who loves all things Faerie, cooking and everything about my life!

  2. This is a great concept to write every day. I think I need to do that. Somedays I just don’t know what to write about though. Last year beat the crap out of all of us I think, some of us were healthwise as we spoke this morning about. I am just happy to have a new year to start fresh & clean. I look forward to see what you write about.

    • I didn’t write for most of last year, I missed it so much. I’m going to try to write at least a few lines every night. ❤

  3. I post on my blog when I feel good. MS kicks my but really hard during winter. I’m starting my smashbook tomorrow. I’ve been busy trying to get this house in order for a new year smudge blessing. Tomorrow will be the day for many things. I can’t wait.

    • Totally understand the not feeling good part. Jimmy keeps me supplied with all the latest electronics so on days when I don’t feel I can sit up at the desk, I have my tablet and if I’m really down, I can drag out the slow as molasses laptop. Here’s to more feel better days!! ❤

    • I can honestly say I missed writing! My goal is to write at least a few lines each night while the bath is filling. And since it’s a deep garden type tub, I should have plenty pf time, LOL!! ❤
