Seriously, folks. As I sit here writing this IWSG post, I'm counting my lucky stars. I have a gift. I'm not talking about my writing (although, I consider it a gift as well), I'm talking about opportunity. The opportunity to write. A fabulous family who supports my creative, quirky, I-don't-do-the-9-5-job-thingy, writerly life. I have the luxury of teaching yoga, which boosts my creativity and allows me the time & energy to write. Yes, It's a wonderful writerly life.
Take a moment and think about all the wonderful aspects of your writerly life. What gifts do you hold which allow you to be the writer you are? Acknowledge them. Honor them. It's good to be thankful. It's amazing when you stop and consider all the wonderfulness in your life, how the good stuff just keeps coming. Try it. :)
Writing Update: On March 1st, I joined Author Denise Jaden's March Madness challenge. This will be my 3rd year to participate. We use the #Wipmadness hashtag over at Twitter. This year, I'm using the challenge to whip my NA ms into shape. Revising. Adding. Deleting. Plot tweaking. Fleshing out characters. Since Saturday, I've spent 31 hours on the ms and sifted through 42 pages. I'm a mad-wipster, and I'm having a revision party. :)
If you've never visited my blog before, I'm a huge fan of the Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG), founded by Alex Cavanaugh. Across the globe, we meet (online, of course!) the 1st Wednesday of the month to express our writerly fears to the world or offer support & encouragement to others. Nothing wrong about expressing our insecurities, we've all be there before. Feel free to join us! Thanks to Tina Downey, Elsie, Elizabeth Seckman, & Julie Flanders for co-hosting this month! You can also join the IWSG on Facebook.
Pens & Poses
On April 26th I'll be presenting my Pens & Poses yoga and writing program at The Writing Barn in Austin, TX. You can click on either of the links above to find out more information.
Tell me something good in the comment section! What's new? What makes your writerly life fabulous? Are you an IWSG'er? Interested how yoga can boost your creativity?
Write on, folks! See y'all next month~
