Holiday and Writing

There is a foolishness that I indulge in when I am on holidays.  It is that I will have inspirations and the time to write.  Ha.  Best I can do is observe people and converse with people, and read.  I've always been fond of second hand book stores.  I've found one today.  Luckily I got out of there before I went crazy buying books.  Now I have words for the rest of the trip.

Now for a break!

I've managed to write to the end of the first draft of Liz's Lymphedema Logbook.  I'm going to take a breather from writing and let the scheduled posts show up for my readers.  The last post will appear in July, but it isn't the end of the work.  As I said, the blog post are my first draft.
It's been a wonderful journey, I'm proud of what I have accomplished.  I had some challenges during the writing process and I certainly know a few more tricks to be able to proceed.  I'm thankful for that.

Creativity of a different type - my friend's pottery.

One Thing At A Time

I discovered a long time ago that I wasn't a multi-task worker; especially when it comes to writing.  This doesn't mean that I am always happy with one-project-and-one-project-only focus, but I have discovered that focus is to be encouraged. 
Lately I have been pushing towards the completion of my blog book - Liz's Lymphedema Logbook.  This is progressing nicely and although I cannot say this with 100% certainty, I believe I have crossed the half-way mark.  I have joy in my heart that I have managed to come this far in this large project.  There have been at least two junctures where I had to overcome difficulties with the writing project.  This success alone makes the project worthwhile, because similar difficulties may well come up again.  My confidence is good that I can write my way forward to the completion of the blog book. 
And then...
