Midweek Check-in The Only Thing I Can Get Done

Mostly I am checking in to say that I have done nothing. We had a personal tragedy in our family and I was not able to do anything.

Today, I am planning to take some time to write, but it hasn't happened so far.

Midweek Check-in And A Bad Poem

This week is going better than last. I am starting to feel better after my surgery and am getting back into the swing of things.

LakeWritersPosting Monday, Wednesday and Friday: Ok, so it is time for me to admit it. I have a blog hop obsession. I just joined a new blog hop called Monday Musings that should help inspire me to post every Monday. At least that is what I am hoping. This week I was inspired to write a bad poem.

Posting flash fiction for Friday Flash: As far as Friday goes I have not posted in a while. I have two stories that are in the middle of being created, but both are on hold for now. Luckily I have some time tomorrow so should be able to get that done for this Friday.

Writing 500 words every day:  I have not written every day. No one was in my way this week. I am the only reason I did not reach this goal. **Hangs head in shame** This goal seems to be so elusive, but I don't want to drop it I want to keep trying at it. Can you turn your "Don't mess with me" stare inward?

Food For Thought

LakeWritersI joined a new blog hop because I love them. You get to meet new bloggers and sometimes you find someone that you really love that you would have otherwise missed. The new blog hop is called Monday Musings. A new prompt is put up every week and on Monday we all hop around to see what the topic inspired in the other participants. This week the topic was “Food for thought”. It inspired in me a really bad poem, but I put it out there in hopes that you will at least get a giggle.

There are many things
I want to write
Some about shining day
Some in blackest night

So many stories
Swimming in my head
Interesting and new
Like none I've ever read

Sometimes they won't come out
Neither here nor there
They need a gentle push
And I know just where

The best place to write
Is where they serve food
It makes the story talk
And puts me in the mood

If you are reading this you made it through and I am so grateful. Where do you find that you do your best writing?

Midweek Check-in And All Doped Up

I haven't posed since last week because I had surgery. I was doped up for a few days then in pain for a few more, but now I think I am up to resuming my goals.

Posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday: Nada, nothing. I haven't been able to sit up much less post.

Posting a flash fiction for Friday Flash: We already covered that I wasn't able to post, but I was able to write a little on a new story.

Writing 500 words every day: This is the goal I made the most progress on. I was able to write on my main work in progress two days and like I said I was able to write on the flash fiction.

And how is my “Don't Mess With Me” Stare. Well, I haven't had a chance to use it much. Everyone has been trying to please me. This has been nice.
