a challenge...

Responding to the word prompts has become a challenge. I did well for the first five months and even wrote some pieces that pleased me. Then came the house renovation and my brain was as scrambled as my environment so no writing was happening. I would like to like to get back into the habit of writing most and preferably every day but I'm not certain I'm up for a challenge.

Yes, the changed environment can be disorienting especially, I suppose, when it's at home where we depend on the familiar and unchanging part of it to limit the background noise which can interfere with the creative process.

I mean, even if it's noisy in the way that home can sometimes be, it's familiar noise and we have those noise canceling mechanisms which serve to block it out.

Around here, I've taken to getting up late at night and coming down to the small lobby to make my random notes about the day and it works because it's both quieter but also somewhat stimulating because of its novelty.

For selfish reasons, I hope you're able to continue with your word cues at some point because I enjoyed reading them. Hope you have a restful night...

I like to think of you scribbling away in the hotel lobby. I like to hear that you are writing, that even displaced as you are, you have found a spot that works.

Thanks for the encouragement on the writing prompts. Much appreciated for real.

And thanks for hoping for me. Perhaps you've got some Merlin in you... (short pause to catch my breath)...my daughter broke her engagement. They're NOT leaving!!  I'm still processing this turn of events, tremulous to speak of it, lest it vanish and spending a lot of time trying to help my daughter with her process. But, oh, oh, the relief is exquisite.

Oh my! Sitting in "my" lobby as I read this, and pausing as well to stay centered on this thought, the import of what I've just read. Not allowing myself to be ecstatic, just staying centered on the hope that all will be well for you and your daughter and granddaughter. (A breath taken here as well) Positive thoughts continue...
