I’ve never been good about keeping a journal. It all boils down to consistency. There are days when I skip making an entry. Life can crowd out the time I need to write down my thoughts about a day’s events. I’ve also been reluctant to pose as an expert on the writing process. If I knew anything of value about writing, my work would already be in print. I went out on a skinny limb of a tall in 2022 when I shared my 365 days of thankfulness. The exercise forced me to put myself out there with my soft belly exposed. Thank you for joining me on my journey in the written word. Therefore, I plan to keep a journal in 2023 to document my progress. I will call this post Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing.
Note: I consider editing an important part of the writing process. Editing is where all the artistry happens.
My morning writing before I started Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing
I spent the morning playing around on Twitter and WordPress, but I am still uncomfortable with Instagram. I still have three days to start playing with my Amazing Buchanan and The Beast characters again. My two-week break will be over then. I’ve got a handful of blog posts ahead and wrote poetry, but I feel like a slacker not doing my morning pages.
The book I am currently reading right now and Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing
I started reading Kate Atkinson’s One Good Turn. This book is one in the Jackson Brodie series. I’ve never read this English writer before and am enjoying this story. It starts with a road rage incident at the Edinburgh Festival. It looks like a guy is about to kill one of the drivers with a baseball bat when one of the bystanders interferes.
What I’m listening to right now and Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing
I am listening to John Mayer’s ‘Room for Squares’ today. This CD is one of his first albums. I’ve heard these songs played on the radio and as background music at the grocery store, but I didn’t pay much attention to this guy’s music until I heard him on one of the blues stations I listen to.
What I dreamed last night and Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing
This was another night when I didn’t remember what I dreamed. I think daylight scares them away.
The adventure Rooster and I took and Entry 113: Spent the Morning Playing
We walked in the gym and went to the grocery store. These days, any trip out of the house constitutes an adventure.
The thing I am most thankful for at this moment.
Yeah! We can shower at home again. I am thankful that the project is almost finished.
The Henhouse Lady says
There is nothing like a warm shower. We managed to be resourceful, but there is nothing like the comfort of home.
