  1. Are you writing something specific or are you journaling? I’ve started several different stories and then hopped off on a new idea…lol.

    1. right now I’m just trying to get in the habit of writing for myself everyday. At the moment the blog is getting the most of that effort, although I am going to be more intentional this month about journaling. And then hopefully start on some more creative stuff. I have a number of pieces started that have been lingering for…a really long time! 😉
