Not a recipe. Just a title for a post with a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
Today is launch day for Possession by Elana Johnson, who if I haven't told you already, is one of the coolest people on the planet! If you want to get to know her better, visit her blog at the link below. She's just plain cool! I've read chapters 1 and 2 of the book and I'm hooked. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy and finish it! I'd love to know who else is reading it this summer.
Now a little of that:
Meaning that poetry challenge I took part in over at Karen's blog.
Long story short - I didn't think I'd have time to try it. Hopped over to her blog to check it out anyway, probably because poetry is my first love and I can't resist a good challenge. Next thing I know that Celtic Butterfly was inspiring all kinds ideas. And there I was, writing a new poem. My heart-felt thanks to Karen for the challenge and giving me a reason to break out of my writing rut and exercise my poetry writing muscles. Which brings me to a point I know I've learned before but apparently need to learn again:
Writing begets writing. It can be poetry, blogs, books, essays, emails, morning pages, the list goes on. The way to keep our writing fresh and flowing, is to, well . . . keep writing.
There's my summer salad. Have a great writing day!
