Try applying ‘living in the moment’ to your writing.
Sounds easy, right? Well, not for me. But the more I thought about the idea, the more I began to realize that is how I write. I write as my characters interact in their moments. Mindfulness is not just for day-to-day living, but for writing too.
Stay with me. Don’t let your mind wander.
Did you ever try to cram more and more into your day? And at the end feel as though you’d accomplished nothing? Me too.
Some days I find it hard to believe I’ve been on WordPress that long.
Other days, I feel as though I’ve been writing blog posts for a zillion years. LOL
Over time, my blog has evolved and changed several times. I’ve written 3 books for children, dabbled with coloring books and journals. I’ve had several flash fiction stories published and entered a few contests. (Placed but never brought the top trophy home.)
So, in honor of me sticking with one thing for 7 years, I’m sharing 7 popular posts. One for each year. Please don’t be too critical of the really old ones.
It’s been a wonderful, maddening journey where I’ve met great writers who have encouraged and helped me improve my craft. Thanks, to everyone for hanging in there with me.
