Today marks six months of writing morning pages. How unbelievable is that? For some reason, I took 3 weeks off in late May and early June. I sometimes do this: I'll be on a roll with something and then all of a sudden I stop. Then I forget to start again! Does that ever happen… Continue reading How I’ve Changed After 6 Months of Morning Pages
Tomorrow will be the three month mark for my morning pages. On December 21 I started a morning routine of writing in my journal every single day. Much to my surprise, I've only missed a handful of days which makes this my longest stretch of journaling ever! I've always wanted to be the person who had… Continue reading Morning Pages are a Morning Miracle
I am so excited that my little blog turns one year old today! I remember when the idea to start a book blog came to me and I thought that it was just another flight of fancy (that happens to INFPs), but I'm still here! I've started several blogs over the years in different niches,… Continue reading Happy Birthday to Never Listless!
Did you notice that I posted five times last week? I was playing catch up on some books that I'd finished over the last couple of weeks and stayed motivated to write all week. I had this really intense manic phase where I, for a brief period of time, lived the life I wanted: I… Continue reading Motivation begets Amotivation – how to find the time
Late last year I wrote about participating in National Novel Writing Month. So that means I’ve had a 50,000+ word document sitting in my Dropbox that hasn’t been touched since the end of November. The reasons for this are innumerable: it’s been hard to regain the momentum that I had during NaNoWriMo; it’s been tricky… Continue reading Picking Up Where You Left Off.
I realize that we are nearly two weeks into January so it's a little late for me to be sharing these, but something that I'm hoping to set each month is a new set of intentions and mantras. There's a lot out there about the Law of Attraction - basically, what you put out into… Continue reading January Intentions
I am eternally grateful to Laila at Big Reading Life who recently reminded me that I can listen to On Being via Podcast. Have you ever listened to any of the episodes? It's hosted by Krista Tippett and interviews all sorts of people with the intent to try to understand the meaning of life. There is a spiritual… Continue reading Quality of
Happy New Year! 2017 is finally here and I am stoked for a ton of reasons. New years always feel like a fresh start. I love setting specific and measurable goals (can't you tell that I work in Quality Assurance?) and plugging away to reach them. I know that this is a reading and writing… Continue reading 2017 Goals
Happy New Year's Eve! I've put together a list of some of my favorite books and writing links from this week. I hope that you enjoy them and find a little nugget to take with you! Self Publishing: An Insult to the Written Word - it's a bit judgmental and insulting to self publishers, but… Continue reading Dumbledore will make 2017 better; and other links
Whew! I was worried that this post wouldn't happen before the year ended, but I am just getting it in! I also want to do a 2017 Goal post, but that can wait until the New Year if I need to. 2016 has been a strange year for me. I went from working full time… Continue reading 2016 Wrap Up
