A Writer Finds Her Voice

I’m over at The Story Unfolding with Elora Nicole today talking about how I found my writing voice.  In this right-now-moment, I can tell you I am a writer.  I own it with pride.  There is no shame in it.  There is no expectation to which I must reach.  The call that I’ve been hearing is that I must be the real and authentic me – nothing more and nothing less.

I am on this writing-discovery-journey now and loving it.  You could not have told me a year ago that I would have found myself in this creative space or that I would have taken on the arduous journey of writing a novel in 30 days.  These things would not have been possible without my Story 101 family.

Today I want to share with you just a few writing insights I have learned along the story 101-way that continue to help me “own” my creative nature in a world brimming with noise.

Read more here, and share your story-writing journey.  I’d love to hear it.

Sometimes in the Random

Ever catch a fleeting glimpse of yourself – the real self – like a flash of lightning?  In an instant you see a picture of what who you could be, but in that same instant it’s gone.  You grasp at it.  Futile. Those moments can be frustrating, but I’m learning if I settle into the unrest of the moment, the flash will come again.  It will stay moments longer.  The more I give myself to being in the stillness of the chaos; those flashes turn to steady-staying light, and I can focus on the forming me.  Then comes that moment.  You know the one.  It’s the AHA! moment of the soul.  The moment you realize, “this is who I really am!  Why have I been hiding?”  Some days are harder than others.  Some days are drudgery.  You make yourself push through the foggy unclear.  And some days you just have to crash your own life. I do mean literally.
