Like Jessica Powers, I love being busy and stacked up with projects. There’s an aliveness to it. I love doing a little bit everyday and inching toward the finish line. As a single mother and writer with multiple jobs, that life works.
Until it doesn’t. Until you find yourself, like Julie Larios, needing to go fishing.
That’s when I hear Kathy Nuzum and Janet Fox and all the other writers at Quotable Tuesday who have joined me to share their wisdom that gets them through the times when writing seems like the craziest (pre)occupation in the world
I have a revision to do. I have a memorial to write. I have a teen going off to Europe. And right now, that’s all I can focus on.
Quotable Tuesday will return but, for now, I need to go quiet. I need to listen to Caroline Carlson‘s wisdom and remember “all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.”
Be well, my friends.
Ah, thanks for the reminder that it’s OK to go quiet sometimes! May you be well also.
Totally…but I know it’s hard to give ourselves permission.
