Less than a month ago I was debating whether Morning Pages were still worth the time and energy anymore. At that writing, I recommitted myself to writing daily and promised to check in with my thoughts. Because I'm getting up to write morning pages, I've started cultivated a writing routine that I felt was impossible… Continue reading Build Writing Momentum with Morning Pages
I love bullet journaling. I love the flexibility to make it what you want or need. I've been extremely minimalist lately because I can throw together this monthly layout in just a few minutes and it serves nearly all of my needs for the entire month. No getting out a ruler and trying to draw… Continue reading What Worked In January 2019 – Bullet Journal
https://twitter.com/marykarrlit/status/1071582297437151232 Mary Karr, who I think I might be distantly related to (by marriage), wrote that tweet on December 8 and I can't stop thinking about it. And she's right. I'm slowly picking my way through Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, and it's amazing how many writers and thinkers swear by their walks. It shouldn't… Continue reading Writers Walk
I started writing morning pages just over two years ago. I loved it and looked forward to waking up at 4:30 nearly every single day to write in my journal; I relished being able to get the coffee pot ready each night and then crawl out of bed to the smell of hot coffee and… Continue reading Are Morning Pages Still Worthwhile?
Returning to book blogging is hard work! There are so many tiny little tasks that need to be accomplished - updating a neglected Goodreads account, remembering the rhythm of memes, remembering how to even use wordpress, reconnecting with old friends with my tail between my legs, etc. It's a reminder of how much work I put… Continue reading The Pains of Catching Up
Everyday I fail at being the person that I want to be. I want to be gentle and kind. To be forgiving and understanding. To accept others as they are and not push them to change. I'm not so good at being that person, but I keep trying. And the positive? I'm able to recognize… Continue reading Okay with the topsy-turvy?
The news cycle is unrelenting. I find myself getting lost in the endless loop of Twitter - the same heartbreaking news stories and pictures, with several hundred different outraged people attached to them. My heart breaks with every scroll through social media. My outrage at America's willingness to vote a miscreant into office is renewed… Continue reading The Simple Things in Life Are Saving Me
It's Monday again! I'm just checking in to share last week's hobonichi spread, my productivity for the week, and a few updates. Last week was a bit of a mess for me and I was completely thrown off of my routine. I did manage to journal 6 days, read my daily quota from War and… Continue reading Hobonichi Love
Good evening, dear friends! I hope this Monday hasn't been too tough on you. I'm here tonight to share last week's hobonichi spread and a few other highlights from my week. I've been trying to take more pictures over the last week to share with you all. One of my favorite blogs is Posie… Continue reading February 26 – March 4 Hobonichi Layout and Updates!
Through all of my malaise, I neglected to post a couple of weeks of my hobonichi layouts! I won't show you last week's because it is basically empty but I did a good job of keeping up with them the previous two weeks. I won't go through all of my goals line by line… Continue reading Hobonichi Weekly layouts, Feb 5-11 & Feb 12-18
