Writing for FUN!

  Thanks to my buddy, Angela, I have been knocked over the head with inspiration. Her photo blog is terrific. If you're a writer and ever feel "blah", go visit her photo blog. You are SURE to find a bit of inspiration there!

  This is the first time in a while that I've written something and had fun at it. It's as though I can see the scenes pounding in my head. They are flowing easily as I type them out. FUN, FUN, FUN! While chatting with a friend yesterday, a "twist" for the story suddenly exploded in my head. :) Yes, Angela, YOU were the inspiration for this idea. A comment you made to me about the story made me think, 'How can I add a twist to this story and create an unexpected element of surprise?' I can't wait to finish it so that you can see what I mean!! :)

  Today's Writing Goals:
· Write more on above mentioned WIP
· Journal
· Blog
· Read
· Scrapbook
· Work on "special" new project for "special" friend --no time today--
· Write a "real" letter to someone (I don't know who, but "real" mail is becoming a lost art. Hmm..Who can I send snail mail to??) --will work on this tonight--
· Write some encouraging words (card or letter) for a friend who's going through a rough time right now --will work on this tonight--

Update: (6:26 pm)
Well, I guess 5 out of 8 isn't too bad. The baby's been sick today, so I didn't get as much done as I wanted to, but I still accomplished a lot. Robert thinks Eli is teething. I think he's too young. Hopefully he will feel better tomorrow.

Blogging Note:
Don't forget that I still blog at Cup of Hope. It's in a new place, but the still same ole' me! :) I update twice weekly, so be sure to head over and read this week's entries! I will probably be going to once weekly in March, since the newsletter begins then.

Don't Forget...
...to leave a comment! I'd love to hear your thoughts about what you read here. Let me know what's on your mind.

Don't forget my new e-zine, Cup of Hope premiers in March. I invite you to join today to receive your free monthly issue.
