I'm energized today.
My writers group on Monday was such a blessing. We had two more people come through the doors and add their own wonderful personalities to our mix.After two hours of listening to similar writing concerns and challenges---I left knowing once more, I'm not alone in this journey to put on paper the stories that ramble around in my head.
Now I knew that--but there is something about sitting across a conference table with another writer and feeling that real-life connection that they get it. They understand the need to share not only with our voices but with our writing.
So yesterday, while Florida was experiencing record breaking temperatures--not in the direction I like--I stayed half the day under my blankets and wrote on my manuscript.
I'm back in the game and love it.
I also have some good news. My friend Angie from the Gumbo Writer blog suggested I submit one of my blogging posts. I changed it up some and sent it off and it was accepted on Monday from a Christian Writers magazine. Thanks!
Several of you commented that sometimes we need those down times to re-energize and clean out our brains and all sorts of things. I think you're right---again!
Are you energized today? Do you have a plan to put on paper all those stored up thoughts? Do you have a list waiting to be checked off? Do you have a story to be sent out?
I'm not sitting across a library table today from you but I'm here on your computer screen. Hopefully you can grab a little encouragement from me.
