Work in Progress~Writer’s of Kern Blog Challenge Post #7~

All area’s of my life are a “work in progress” it defines my existence really.

I am working on editing not one but two very different works of fiction, care for the needs of my family and  still try to find joy in the day to day; while also deciding if it might be time for me to work part time.

I think the word to focus on is “progress”. Even the very smallest amount of progress, I am realizing I need to acknowledge it so that staring at the whole undone picture does not overwhelm me to the point of feeling defeated.

There is a scripture in Matthew that says “Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself, each day has enough trouble of it’s own”, I think when my fab five were little I quoted that scripture too myself so many times even my kids know it by heart. So now I need to apply that timeless piece of advice to writing as well.

Here is a smattering of the ridiculous nonsense that my brain contrived:

Simply sit and writecartoon woman typing

Tap Tap Tap Tap

Nothing hard about that

Tap Tap Tap


Tap Tap


Sit Write Simple





Imagine you in your idea of perfection

Quick I see a cup of green tea

Sitting lovely

Yoga done with the sunrise

Brisk mile walked

Energized I sit ready to write

Breathing in fresh breezes of ocean air

The keys welcome my touch

Creating from the ether’s together

We spin in comedic harmony

Spicing the lines with intrigue and life


“Hey Mom” Sweeps it all away,

awakening me

Teenage angst screams loudly,

We’re late!

Rushing out the front door

Hot air smacks the smugness from my mind

Memories of ocean air melts away like a receding tide

Crazed quick glances at the intersection of my reality

This is no place for whimsical fantasy

Yoga maybe next week.

    1. Sometimes when I write it feel’s like the keyboard has a mind of it’s own and we are gathering from the ether’s creating the unimagined. We are working together in a rhythmic dance.
