It has been a challenging day for my writing muse.
I have not been the kindest companion to her.
I finally got into a writing groove but what came was poetry, not prose.
What came was silly and then historical and not like my usual at all.
I think it may have been thanks to the post it notes, whispering to my subconscious.
“poetry, tags, convert pages to the Writing Camp blog.”
My subconscious has delivered. I cannot remember the last time I wrote two poems in a day. This is different. This is welcome. This is a pleasure.
I worked on a couple of my newest mixed media pieces today. I came up with a new strategy for one of them.
I created and completed and have more art simmering on my work table.
The prose I have written is a grand total of about four hundred words that felt like they took four hundred years to arrive on the page.
There is always tonight to write AND whatever words tumble upon the page is fine, too. Normally I easily string 1,000 words along in under an hour, but today whatever words percolate is fine by me.
Even when the words sound and feel ridiculous, any words are better than no words.
