Getting Started

Keeping a blog as a writer can be challenging, because I tend to prioritize gigs that pay versus writing for fun. I am so blessed to do what I love, but many times I get caught up in deadlines and forget to feel gratitude for my work or even just stop and enjoy it all.

Can you relate?

How often do we put off the things we love for all the "should's" or "supposed to's" in our life? 

Well, today is the day to get started. It doesn't have to be pretty or even remotely close to perfect. It's better just to put something on this digital paper. 

If you're just finding me for the first time, here are are few articles I've written about writing:

Stoned Crow Press: Write About Butter

Omega Institute: Coffeeshop Creativity

Omega Institute: Bring More Mindfulness to Your Writing

And because I love homework (yes, I'm a weirdo), here's a small assignment for you:

Start a small writing project today, even if it's just the first sentence. Set a timer for 10 minutes and allow yourself to daydream on the page. Write about something you feel super excited or passionate about. Or try complaining about something bugging you, like how you hate doing laundry, getting stuck in a crowded subway or the state of the world. Say it in a way that is unique to you. And if you like what you come up with, post it below.
