No clicking or clattering
No fancy pen dipping in antique inkwell

No ideas budding into Spring

All is dormant
Peaceful, quiet as the wintry garden outside

Just as trees have gathered life down deep under frozen landscape
so this soul feels drawn to hibernate

Be still...
Be still and know...

To everything there is a season.

Now is time to come away.
Dream. Ruminate.

Rest. Be still. Know.

Spring will come.
And new life...
New words too.

A New Year for Writing


Happy New Year!

This is my year for getting one writing project finished
and ready for publication.

I'm hoping this is your year for getting
your writing project completed too.

To  make it work, we probably need these three things:

1. Sit in chair every day.

2.  Not tune in to any social media till after we write.

3.  Complete one small task every single day that
brings us closer to the finished project.

      * * * * * *

If you need some inspiration, information, ideas or good plain sense,
do take some time to check out these writerly links...

But only after you finish #3 first.

This is my new life and I'm writing to find the right words,
