Snowed In

This isn’t Buffalo but we’re all wondering when the snow will stop falling. We’re used to rocking and rolling our cars back and forth out of parking spots the past few days have been a little too much, especially for those who have places to be.

I wanted to crawl under my blankets and luckily my appointments fell into times just before the snow started. I haven’t been out of my sweats and pj’s for the past few days and it’s been hard to keep my brain out of hibernation. Spring shows, store restocking, and a book writing list have kept me up.

The sudden jumping out of bed reminded me that I need to set an earlier time in the day for brainstorming so that I can empty everything on paper before I close my eyes. If I don’t, all the ideas surface because they’re not held back by all the must do’s.

Letting out of the all ideas trapped below the surface and having pure bursts of creativity are being added into this month. The start of a new year, a new beginning is the perfect time to make the list of things I can immediately, in a month, in 6 months, and in a year. A mix of actions that reward your brain immediately and later on down the road help keep the motivation up.

I have to say that journaling or writing regularly also helps to keep restless nights down to a reasonable amount. I hope everyone is finding their rhythm this month. If you’re having trouble, write it out. Let it out unorganized and without intention. Then, put it together like a sentence.

One more day of blogging to go! Yes, I’m back on track!

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
