Set your timer for 15 minutes and explain yourself:
Years ago I had other digs at Blogspot and had started that blog by going through Barbara Demarco-Barrett’s book Pen On Fire. It was one of my favorite writing times because everything I wrote was fresh and had a purpose. I won’t lie to you… sometimes finding things to write about can be downright exhausting. So when I had an entire book of writing prompts, I was in Heaven.
But for some reason, I never completely finished the book, so I think it’s only right to go back through the book and finish it for good. I have my book and my trusty timer on my phone, so I am going to do this.
Thankfully, for my 40th birthday, Linda had printed every post ever done on that first website. Even though it was deleted online, I still have those first years in a binder. For years she has told me, ‘make a book with them,’ and I never really thought anything of it until yesterday when I started to read through them again. When I got about half way through it dawned on me that I might actually be able to make a book out of these. I don’t know if anyone would buy it, but to have it all in one place would be amazing.
So I am going through the book and completing the ones that I never finished back then. I will set my timer and have at it. To have this come back into my life at this time is such a blessing and reminds me of why I write.
I simply love it.
End of story.
Love your day 🙂
