Everyday Inspiration – Day 20 – Wrap it up

Well, I made it, I think I probably half-assed my way through some of the topics, I just wasn’t ‘feeling it’, whatever that really means?

To be brutally honest, I don’t look at my word counts, I say what I need to say and then stop….so today, that’s it. I’ll say my piece and then no more, yesterday I turned 50, so that is my magic number for this word count, short and sweet. ~Julz

I am going to take a small break from the suggested topic, for a reason. The weather is miserable, and I am not about to sit outside anywhere for 20 minutes. Instead, I sat and listened to a young woman who has had her heart broken by the man she was to wed. This woman…

Everyday Inspiration, Day 9: Writing and Not Writing

Today’s topic asks us to explore what we do to step away from our writing? As I am not actually a writer I guess I do not really need a break as such. However in saying that, something it is just a good idea to walk away from the keyboard. I often find myself staring…
