A Record Writing Day

Yesterday, I wrote 5,000 words for one of my books! That, I'm sure, is a record for me in one day!
My creative juices have been there since starting again, but they have been flowing more in trickles than in downpours. And, I also have felt the need to pull myself in, to center myself a bit before delving fully into things. Thankfully, I recognized that I should allow myself to enjoy the break this offered because I felt like when it hit - it would hit - as it has!
I am going to try to write the same amount today. It's mentally exhausting and mentally stimulating, but so far all brain function appears intact! ;)

I also have a story that I wrote a long time ago out this month in Kansas City Parent. It's a column-style piece about helping kids learn money management through the back to school shopping experience. You can read the whole story here.

That's a lot of words. Whatever your cure for writer's block, might be, I'd love to borrow some ;-)

Hey Caroline, just stopping by to say hi. Glad to see you're getting some good writing done. Like I told you before, this is your time to clean all those skeletons out of your closet and focus on you and your new beginning.

BTW, I'm thinking of starting a blogger blog, so I will ask you about it. I specifically need a blog that can categorize and subcategorize, but I see you haven't used that feature much.
