Demoting My Inner Critic

I am in a virtual writer’s retreat for the next couple of weeks. I’m committing to continuing writing but I have to find a way to silence the negative voice in my head. My Inner Critic doesn’t just dampen my spirit in writing, though.… Continue Reading “Demoting My Inner Critic”

My Ongoing War With Words

I remember the days when I couldn’t wait to write a blog post. It used to be so much fun to come up with a funny or interesting idea and see where it might lead me. Friends would respond on Facebook and we’d have… Continue Reading “My Ongoing War With Words”

A Year of Living Differently

It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since my little world shut down due to Covid. At this time last year, I was adjusting to working at home with my clunky Windows computer at my dining room table. I loved being in… Continue Reading “A Year of Living Differently”

Living in the Flow

I’d like to write but the topic eludes me. Writing seems so “not present” at the moment. I’d really rather set up a coffee date with you and tell you all about it over a warm beverage. I tried to find a topic in… Continue Reading “Living in the Flow”

The Fruit of the Spirit

I’ve had writer’s block for awhile now. I’ve been really working with it for over a year, and the magic seems to have evaporated. My head used to be full of stories, and my day would be scattered with seemingly magical moments where topics… Continue Reading “The Fruit of the Spirit”

#WhyIWrite

Today, October 20, is the National Day on Writing. And thousands of people are sharing the reasons they write with the hashtag #WhyIWrite. I’m not sure why I’ve never heard of this day before, but I thought I should be a part of it… Continue Reading “#WhyIWrite”

Morning Share: Be Creative

For months now, I’ve been receiving messages from HP (my higher power) to be more creative. Rumor has it that being creative opens us up to so many possibilities spiritually. Creating and giving to the world is one way to get into the flow.… Continue Reading “Morning Share: Be Creative”
