I want to get wild with my writing. Yes, I know I can have writing quickies. In fact, I have been having quickies, but it isn’t the same as languid lolling about, admiring words, flirting with words, delighting in words and laughing, gasping for breath, my fingers moving, hands surveying the keyboard for just the right spot and then – it happens.
You know what I’m talking about. Sheer ecstacy.
One of the signs I mean business is the moment I sweep my long hair into a ponytail before sitting down at my writing desk. I will have no distractions from word-love, not even the slight curve of my brown hair will deter me.
This morning was one of those days.
My writing has taken a back seat to another passion of mine lately. I have written about it here recently… so much so I feel somewhat like a broken record to bring it up again. My passion for theater and performance has been taking up to ten hours a day this week which leaves very little time for writing on top of Mommying, Homeloving, my part-time job and any other needs which have popped up, including spending time on Emma’s theater adventures.
Writing, my anchor art, still gets attention but oh, I long to give it more.
One exciting thing about theater frenzied times is they are always finite.
Right now I am hanging on until Sunday night, when I will go out for friends after my sixth performance of the weekend and throw back a drink or two in celebration of a creative work out unlike any before.
Monday will find me back here, smiling and content and ready for word-love, word-adventures and yes, lets be honest: word-lust.
This is my ROW80 Wednesday weekly, unconventional ROW80 check in when instead of giving the facts and figures of my writing week, I share an aspect of who I am being as a writer while I am ROWing.
So grateful you are here, reading…
