Rays

6 22 2014 (42)

Since the Midwest is completely lifeless in the winter, I went through some old pictures. I thought I had posted this on here before, but apparently, I haven’t. This picture was taken back in 2014 at my grandma’s house, and it remains completely untouched. Somehow, my old digital camera picked up the rich colors when it’s normally particular about being bold.

Ladies Night

Photography Tuesday is honestly a picture I took of myself a couple weeks ago. I don’t normally take “selfies,” but when I snapped this, I was feeling rather proud. That week saw me working on both my novel and blog every day. It was productive, energizing, and made me extremely happy. Fast forward another seven days. This past week saw absolutely no creative productivity. Hence a week since I’ve posted on here. Work has been crazy as our store already prepares for spring. I won’t say much more, but it’s been both physically and emotionally exhausting. The stress had taken pretty much every creative juice out of me and hid it away somewhere. However, some things changed today, so hopefully, I can get back on track. And I chose this picture to remind myself of the joy of two weeks ago. 


Ice Lichen

Today’s Photography Tuesday brings us ice crystals off my Wrangler from a blistering cold of a morning. The way they formed reminded me of lichen, and lichen is one of my favorite things to photograph.

New Plan

After having a couple days of thought–and bothering a close friend of mine until she stopped saying “It’s your blog, do what you want to do”–I believe I have devised a plan. Though, I’m still unsure as to whether or not it will actually work. But here’s to hoping, right? I’m pretty sure a wise being once said, “Do or do not. There is no try.” So, this is what I plan to do:

Sketching Sunday
Memoir Monday
Photography Tuesday
Writing Prompt Wednesday
Poetry Thursday
Freebie Friday
Short Story Saturday

A few things to note. Firstly, I added sketching because I used to do it all the time (before I became a die-hard perfectionist with my art), and I had relatively decent confidence in my drawing skills. I’m honestly not sure what happened other than I stopped sketching. Secondly, I have no idea if Monday will stay as “memoir.” Are people even interested in that sort of thing? It’s not like I’ve led a particularly exhilarating life. I guess I’ll find out. Let’s see…. Thirdly, I love writing prompts. Normally, I find them on my own–in nature, observing other people, daily life, etc. However, I will be using predetermined, freely-handed out writing prompts. I have a bunch saved, and it’s about time I put them to use. Lastly, I’m in love with “Freebie Friday” because it gives me a day that isn’t set. So if I have an extra poem, short story, photo, whatever I want, I can post it on Friday.

 

Well. Enough said. I’m fairly satisfied with my new plan. Fingers crossed I can be disciplined. I suppose I better use this space to apologize in advance in case I’m not consistent. Or if I forget. I happen to be a forgetful person. Or if I screw it up. I’m sure that’s bound to happen at some point. Anyhoo, I’ll leave this here for now. I’ll start tomorrow with “Freebie Friday.” As I said in my previous post, if you have any suggestions or tips, I’ll be more than happy to read them in the comments! Thanks again!
