In the past week, I had a particularly horrible day. And while I didn’t turn it around as such, something great has come out of it.
Writing For Me
It started with me purchasing a very funky notebook that I’ve been lusting after. They’re called Novel Journals and not only are they stunning, but the lines on the pages are actually novels. I chose the title becuase it meant something to me, particularly on that bad day.
And ever since, I promised myself I would write something in it every day. Something creative. It’s easy to be thoughtful on a blog like this but I’ve long worried I’m not creative often. It doesn’t have to be, or world changing, or anything. It just has to be something. Most of it I am not likely to share online as it’s a private creative process. However, I wrote this last night and I wanted to share it:
We claw our way to perfection,
Through hills and valleys.
Gorges threaten to overwhelm us,
But the river floats us away.
Do you have a private creative practice?
