Feb. 22, 2012: Stockpiling the feast against the famine

Sunny and wet

It rained last night, so everything glistens in the sun.

Meditation was good yesterday, but taking that time in the morning meant adding hours in to the back of the day, so I was working until 10 PM. That’s just the way this week will be — I have to finish the HEX BREAKER edits, keep up with my other writing, and teach three classes. I will enjoy the feast and stockpile against famine.

Speaking of teaching, the local writers’ center asked me to teach a day-long workshop in May for teens. I think that will be really fun, and I look forward to putting together something dynamic that gets their creative juices flowing far beyond the single day. From what I understand, these are bright, highly-motivated teens anyway, so they’re eager to jump in and DO. I’m pretty excited, and very honored that they asked.

I’ve got to finish tweaking another short story today and get it up for class — I went off on a tangent that did not work AT ALL — I discovered a lot about the characters, but now, I need to put something relevant on the page!

Also had some good pondering on HEART BINDER. So, even though I feel mired in so many “have-tos” this week, it’s still being a creative week.

I’m off to take my mom to a medical appointment now, and then, it’s back to the page.

  1. Healthy thoughts for your mom, Devon….

    I usually fit my meditation in at two points in the day – around 7 am and just before dinner. Always on an empty stomach. It just promotes better concentration.

  2. I LOVE the cover! Love it!

  3. I wish we had a teen writers workshop here, other than the local library teen writers group. (It’s put on by a librarian and while she writes book reviews I wish they’d have local writers come in and give talks.)

    I wish you TIME.

    • Thank you, Brandy. I appreciate the good wishes. I’ll be okay in a week or so. I’m just feeling a little overwhelmed by now.

  4. I know it may sound weird coming from someone you’ve never “met” other than the internet, but you are in my prayers and I am thinking of hugs for you. I know what it’s like to be overwhelmed…
