Well, after that brutally long winter and interrupted spring, it appears that summer is here. For me that presents all new challenges for writing time as beds need to be weeded and my son has baseball game after baseball game and late-night walks with my husband are a treat I can’t miss. But it still has to get done. How we fit it in is always the challenge, but the goal is to fit it in. So today’s prompt is to remind you about ‘pocket writing.’ It means pulling out a small moleskin (journal, napkin, used envelope, whatever), and writing in those moments when you’re stuck waiting for your teenager at the dermatologist, are waiting for the water to boil for pasta, those last moments before you absolutely have to get stuff done. We’re not all able to schedule our writing time, although, that certainly is the most effective strategy. Yet when we can’t pocket writing does the trick. Every sentence, every new paragraph, every thought, moves us forward. So, please carry a small notebook, or at least a pen and grab whatever scrap you have and write.
Our next workshop is June 17 at 10:30 a.m. in the North Bend Library room. Bring your chosen texts. Bring your homework. Catch up over at our website.
And now your moment of Writing Zen:
“It is precisely the possibility of realizing a dream that makes life interesting.” ~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
