So I’m writing a book, a second memoir of sorts. It’s been an interesting process and also emotionally exhausting. I’ve rediscovered and also uncovered new things about life, faith, and pressing in to life. None of the writing has been easy, but I think it has been worth it to dig in to the whole truth hidden behind doors. Of course, writing memoir can take a lot of a person. Be gentle with yourself. Sometimes you come to the page blank. Words won’t come. You’re staring at a blank screen. Nothing is making sense. I had that moment the other day. Continue reading Still You Are Here
I love the writing community, Story Sessions! Women are taking up their brave on a daily basis, owning the beauty of brokenness, and sharing the story – healing words spilling from their souls. These words are beautiful. I met Jamie through Story Sessions and as a part of Story 201. She has been a shoulder of calm and confidence. She has inspired me to keep pressing in to the business of finishing out my memoir.
I know you will be encouraged by her poetic words on pressing in to the Beauty of Now. And please take a listen to her lovely, musical rendition.
I didn’t always love being in tight knit community, but that’s because I was afraid. 2013 became a year of wing spreading, muscle flexing, and flying. These days, I am much less fearful and embracing community, embracing the words, and welcome the fire in my belly. These mighty women inspire me.
In the Story Sessions writing community, women encourage and empower one another. No voice is silenced. Every soul there is learning to sing her song and roar her brave.
I have always loved music, singing, song writing, and harmonizing. It’s part of who I am. Though I haven’t done it in a while, I was compelled to join the 7in7 Project. You write seven complete and new songs in 7 days and post them to SoundCloud. This is the push I have needed to keep moving forward. Join me on the journey.
Sometimes you need to move forward in faith and just believe. You just gotta do the thing you were always meant today.
Today here’s my shot at that. Tell me what you think. I’ll be sharing more in this daring dream later.
