Consistently Inconsistent.

I’m so consistently inconsistent. Especially with my writing. On here, in my journals…I can go weeks without even writing a sentence….

….then something changes….

I’ll jump back in… but then I struggle. Again. The words just won’t come. Brain fog hits and I suppose that’s why I fall back out of writing. I get discouraged.

I want to write. I want to write!!!

I came across some quotes to help writers…

If there is a book that you want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then YOU must write it

Toni Morrison

Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.

Louis L’Amour

One day I will find the right words and they will be simple.

Jack Kerouac

You fail only if you stop writing

Ray Bradbury

And my favorite?

Creative Writing is like a muscle: Use it or lose it.

I need to exercise my creative writing muscle. 🙂

I have signed up for two English classes at my local community college. They are online classes so that I don’t have to change my schedule at work.

Creative Writing and Introduction to English Literature. Classes start January 10. I’m really looking forward to learning more about writing creatively.

My Own Worst Critic

I have a tendency of being too hard on myself. I beat myself up over things. I think too hard about some things. I am my own worst critic.

I’m getting so frustrated with myself because I lack any and all creativity.  This bullet journal is not going well for me. I have no artistic bone in my body. I may shelve the bullet journal for a while until I can figure out why I’m actually doing it. Am I trying to do a bullet journal for ME? Or because everyone seems to be doing one and I don’t want to feel left out?

So until I can figure out the answer to that question, no bullet journal for me! 🙂


I haven’t been feeling inspired lately when it comes to my writing. But I’ve taken all of the ideas I’ve been given from my wonderful WordPress family to heart and am going to work hard to write what I know.

I made a joke once: “I know I’m supposed to write what I know but the trouble is I don’t know anything!” LOL, I know that I know things but I don’t feel that I know things worth sharing.

I can’t force the writing. It has to flow.

So what I’m going to do is give it all to God and let Him guide me.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 says,

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

I just want to thank all of y’all who have been praying for me. I really appreciate it. 🙂
