when you have clarity, run with it, because if you don't, you WILL lose it.

True!

I keep notebooks everywhere I go, so when I have thoughts I can record them. (I also use my phone, but I much prefer writing it out.) If I don’t record things, I likely will lose them. My mind can’t remember things as well as it once did!😆

Just popping in to wave hi to everyone and say my goodness what a beauty you are!
Love the hair and...I also write as often as I can. Sometimes scattered incomplete thoughts and dreams but, perhaps it will be an insight for my girls the day my physical body leaves this earth.
Or, they may choose to chuck it in the trash. LOL
Either way I find it very therapeutic.

☺️Thank you for the compliment!

I’m not good at journal keeping, at least in the conventional sense. I have scattered thoughts recorded, but have recently realized that should I die tomorrow, I would leave nearly nothing for my children to know me by. I have to be a bit more organized and start writing more about me. I hate writing about me, but I’ll have to overcome that for their sake.

Morning Shed Friends.

This is what it looks like outside this morning. Snow really coming down.


But in my heart, this is what I feel. Warm, cozy and compfy. Hope everyone is having a peaceful and warm day inside.

Oh my goodness! That snow fall is BEAUTIFUL! But keep it where you are! I don’t want it😂

Honestly, I'm jealous. (Hi Kat!)

We have maybe 1 1/2" on the prairie. The shepherditos are trying to sled anyway, though. Hopefully the pattern will switch and we'll get a blizzard before Christmas.

Blue, love the pic! My you were indeed up early this morning.

Gordi, love your Christmas avatar!

Hi Fin! Hope you are having a great day!

Chels, I used to keep notes with parts of poems or stories. These days it's notes about important things I need to do or things I need to get at the store. Kind of sucks if I lose one of those papers though. LOL

Chirp, how lovely to see you today! Oh my goodness, look at that adorable Christmas avatar! Love it! I think it's wonderful that you have notes for your girls to find when you leave this realm. Wish you'd stop in more often!

Kitty Kat, it looks like a Winter Wonderland where you are. We had our first snow fall recently, but much of it has melted already. Hey, I love those colorful socks!

Hiya Shep! A blizzard for Christmas? Nooooo! Snow maybe, but not that much!

TNM...! You kidding? I've read some of your stuff and it sure doesn't belong in the trash.

a reply to: chelsdh

I find that writing about oneself is invaluable in reconciliation with the ideal self, though it does tend to exacerbate things.


Hi Night, shedmongers!

Oh, but think about it, Night. Look at Kat's pic - a fire, cozy socks, a blanket maybe, some hot cocoa (perhaps with a bit of Bailey's in it), or egg nog, the people and creatures we love, all together, and with snow coming down outside like Kat's picture you're surrounded by beauty and love. What more could you want?

In a blizzard, it doesn't matter how much money you have, what version of iPhone you have, what your house looks like from the outside, what car you drive, who you know, any of the BS stuff that keep us separated from other people. It all goes away for just a little bit. Doesn't get too much better than that on earth.

I honestly hope heaven has seasons - perfect, ideal seasons, four of them.

Wow, man, I forgot how philosophical you are. Missed ya during my time away from the Shed, Lucid!

Interesting about writing as a tool for introspection. I'll have to ponder that - I'm not sure I've learned much about myself during my writing of Falling other than I really like to write.



Hi Chirp and chelsdh!

Heya Shep! Well, if you think about it, even when you're just writing a story... It can still highlight your modes of thought and predilections. Like, to read over falling, you might discover that you, for example, always think about cheesecake when you think of a fireplace. Or... You can see how the characters do their things, and that might tie in somehow to your personal narrative. Or a story is just a story, haha.

I see what you mean. Yeah, I guess I have some of that. I actually have concerns that my personal patterns will overflow into the characters and taint their thoughts and actions.

So I guess that most of my characters would end up essentially paranoid, then, right?

Oh nature's beauty is never wasted on me. It's the aftermath of all that snow which can be quite dangerous to Mark and I. One good fall could really screw us up. He has a prosthetic leg and I have back issues and nerve damage. The fireplace is beautiful, but I have never had one. LOL

Night smirks knowing Lucid's tricks and allows him to think he's getting away with something while Pesky takes the sign off Night's back.

Hey it's not many times I'll see that someone else thinks of their characters as being their own selves!! Simply wonderful. Well if they do end up paranoid send em.over to ATS!!


Psstt, nightstar, I used superglue

That’s very true. Putting it in ink is a good way to reflect and reassess things from a more objective point - the emotions we feel while experiencing any given moment great colors how we process, interpret and remember things. If we can write it down in a less emotional time, then it can be very useful.

I was helping my oldest daughter with an assignment. Long story short, she had to read and evaluate a passage by an author discussing how all we write, fiction or not, is peices of the real world. Sometimes rearranged, or colored differently, or stretched and cut. It was written more eloquently than that, of course. But it made me take pause and think on that. And now I think about what I read and where the writer got all the parts from and made a collage of the peices to tell a certain story.

Sometimes, it is nice to ride the storm using the pen as a boat, so to speak

I never really understood that idea until I started writing a novel-length story. They really do take on a life of their own.
