You know, I think part of my hesitation to blog has been simply not being able to think clearly enough to put ideas, thoughts, and feelings on paper. So to speak. As someone who used to think of herself as a writer, who once thought about becoming a writer, this is something of a self-perpetuating spiral. It hurts and so it doesn't get done.

SO here we are, just after Samhain and into what I consider the sleeping New Year. Winter is when the world is not as active, slumbering in the cold and damp, just waiting for those sunny warmer days of wakening spring, I've decided to push myself into posting more, writing more about how I feel and why I feel. It may not make a whole lot of sense outside of my head, but at least it will be visible.

The goal here is to post everyday, either a meme or something from my life. I'm three days behind the beginning of November so there may be more than one post a day.

Also, if you are using Dreamwidth more than Livejournal - since I know there's been some shifting over there this summer and fall, please friend me there as well the username is the same.

In regards to writing, I feel the same. Often I feel to scattered to even get a single word on the page. I have several pages in my physical notebook where the words came out so fast and confused that it looks like scribbles.

I've been working my way through Writing Down the Bones which was suggested to me by [livejournal.com profile] flexurfeel. It has been really helpful getting me moving with my writing. I also find that writing lets my other creative tendencies come to the surface... my goal is not good writing, but good art in general.

Happy writing!
