This week I’m celebrating writing.
I’m currently in one of my phases where I’ve committed myself to write every day.
I’ve been successful in completing my Morning Pages (as introduced in Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way) for over a couple of weeks now. With this exercise, I’ve learned that it’s a matter of showing up. I’m making a conscious effort to make this a priority because writing is important to me. It makes me feel good I am being that kind of person.
I’ve also been participating in a Poem-A-Day challenge. When I’m writing, I’m always surprised by how the brain works. How is it even we think about the things we do? And, the process of it all is incredible. It’ll be interesting to go over some of these poems at a later date to see if I improve upon them.
I tend to dismiss my blogging as not actual writing but it is. Maintaining a blog is hard work but I enjoy it. I love sharing my passion for and commitment to literacy. I love the communities I’m members of. I’ve always wanted to be a writer to make connections with others.
As for my writing with intention of publishing, this is something I still really need to work on. With the other writing I’m doing though, I think I’ll get this going again sooner rather than later.
What are you celebrating this week?
