I started my morning with a nice 3 mile walk on the treadmill because my kids got a 2 hour Snow Delay at their school!!! I walked and listened to music today instead of the usual podcast to allow my mind to just float and drift. I love walking meditation. I also enjoy when I can get my workout done and out of the way before the realities and worries of the day weigh upon me.
I am doing a 5 Day Writing Challenge with Lisbeth Darsh who I started following on Facebook a year or two ago because she was writing about the Cross Fit Games. I enjoy her writing and sense of humor. She is a single mom who seems to have a sweet and awesome relationship with her kids. She is a big mother nerd who is raising some great boy nerds which are greatly needed in our world.
Anyway, she posted in her Facebook feed to ask if anyone would like to participate in a 5 day writing challenge. All of us needy new writers jumped and said hell yes!
It is really cool to be introduced to so many good writers and very kind people. I love seeing so many different writing styles and diverse content. It is also so wonderfully human to see people, like me, stressing the damn deadline of having to put something forth for everyone to read for 5 days in a row.
Having been in this huge emotional schlump the past few weeks I was hoping this would get me writing again. It sure has. My mind is buzzing. Now if I can just get something to linger long enough to get it on paper.
It is day 3 and I will write away throughout the day and hope to have something to post before midnight.
