Let’s Talk (for 31 Days?)

It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post wherein I just lay it all out there. I thought  I  might do that today, because  I feel extremely disconnected from everything that has been meaningful to me in my life for the past few years, or more.



4 Seasons of the Writing Life: Season 2-Create




As we move through the four seasons of The Writing Life, I think it is a good idea to keep in mind the fluidity of each and continuing overlap.  I think in the  next two seasons of writing this is most clearly experienced, although we move back and forth between the seasons in an ongoing journey, in writing as in life.

After the season of contemplation comes the point at which what is ruminating within seeks to come to fruition. There is a boiling point, and the bubbling over leads to something culminating… the birth of something new. Something previously  not in the realm of the creator. More

I wonder what it was that caused you to put your pen to paper. Today, yesterday, right now. I wonder also what caused you to choose to share your writing. I wonder what your motive was to write at all? Have you thought about it?

Have you thought about the weight of your words, whether you share them or suppress them?

Has something caused you to stop writing? What?

About your writing- More

The (Christian) Writer’s Inquiry




Good Morning, and Happy Sunday.

Before I share my still hot from the morning journal pages poem with you I wanted to let those of you looking for Part 2 in the 4 Seasons of the Writing Life series will be live Monday.

Thanks for joining me on the journey today!

One of the reasons I considered NOT participating in the Write 31 Days in October writing challenge has to do with the season I believe the Lord has revealed is upon me in my writing life.

I’ve never really struggled to write or felt like I have had writers block. Part of the reason for this fact is I don’t abide by a specific form of writing, but allow my pen to freely flow as it wishes to go…without judgement. The  more the pen glides across the paper the easier it is to get unstuck. I’m fairly committed to sitting down with a blank page, or blinking cursor on-screen and allowing what will be to be.

However, I committed to blogging with the intention of following the Lord’s leading. Which I feel I mostly have done. Until now.


Does The Pressure To Be Best Kill Our Best Efforts?



Today, I’m doing something a little different. Today as  I walked my dog, Banjo, I decided to share my heart.  On video.

I’ll flesh this out more on paper tomorrow.

For today, ruminate with me.

Then come back and see how these initial thoughts articulated are clarified and revised for a blog post.

As a good friend says about me, ” You write better than you talk!” AND the woman loves me. Haha!
