Positive Post #18

 

February 21, 2018

For this post, I am sharing a post that I found on E.A. Deverell’s blog. I love her writing worksheets, advice, how-to’s, and all that she shares on her website. If you’re a writer than I highly urge you to check it out.

Have a great night.

Writing Journal Worksheet – Dialogue (PDF) One area that writers most frequently ask me to help them with is writing dialogue. Specifically, I get asked how to write “realistic” dialogue. I agree that it’s important for dialogue to sound “natural”, so that the conversation doesn’t appear contrived and conveniently planted to please the plot. But…

Things are changing around here

I have given some thought to the changes I need to make at this blog.

I need to change it completely.

It’s a little bit sad and a whole lot of happy.

I need to shut this blog down, delete it, release it to the past where it belongs.

You see, when I started this blog 5 years ago I was in different frame of mind and it was titled appropriately.

Chasing Moonlight represented the way I was writing back then, but I don’t want to chase things anymore. I want to, need to, finish things and I realized that by always chasing – I never caught what it was I was chasing.

I still write – a lot – at night and I most likely always will as it its part of who I am as a writer. I’ve also changed who I am as a writer in other ways.

So to keep in line with changing I need to change this too, my blog.

I’m still going to have an online presence I like the way it feels to keep in touch with you, the reader of these words. So I’m in the process of starting another blog on this website for sure. I’ll keep this one going for a bit so that those who would like to keep reading my sometimes silly posts, sometimes serious posts and sometimes a bit outside the realm posts, can follow the links to the new blog.

This major change will, I believe, spark a whole new slew of posts and writing.

Thanks for hanging out with me here and I look forward to the new (as yet untitled) blog.

Have a wonderful week. 🙂

Monday Museful Musings

Hello Monday and a Happy Afternoon to all!

A little museful poetic aside for you today.

Enjoy.

A Nap

by Joelle Wilson

Today I am moving at a snail’s pace,

I woke up tired with a lack luster expression

on my face and as I try and try

I just can’t seem to wipe the sleep

out from my eyes,

and I really need to

I have things I want to do,

wish all I had to was raise up

my fingers and snap,

but I think what I’ll do is

just nap.

The Last Magnetic Monday

Yes you read the title correctly. This is the last Magnetic Monday post. Not the last one forever, just for now.

What can I say? I like change. Magnetic Monday was great for a couple of months but now, I need something different.

Not sure what the change is yet, but I’ll know for sure before next Monday rolls into view.

For now though…..

wild, animal, perfect, sleep.

Those are the words that caught my eye this morning.

I find myself wandering today

across this landscape of

laughter and broken promises.

And inside I feel the

call of my heart.

This once perfect shell

I built around me to protect me

only served to keep me

in a state of perfect sleep.

Now though,

I feel myself waking to

the new possibilities

of life.

the haze is lifting

and I feel the first

stirrings of a

wild animal

in my soul.

 

Hope you find some hidden treasures this week and remember to make your Monday marvelous. 🙂
