Writing After The Move

We moved around the first of May. We have been completing the move and I have been nesting for 6 weeks now. The move was intense! On one of those nights we stayed up over 24 hours loading a car and a minivan after 2 moves from a moving service called Bellhops. It was quite exhausting.

This move was a pretty big one. I closed 3 offices in Ringgold on December 31. And brought all that furniture and boxes and forced it into our 2 car garage. Three-months later we move from a 2,000+ square feet home to one that is less than 2,000 square including having to fit furniture from my Ringgold offices.

This move was also infused with legal custodial battles with my ex. The father of my children.

Finding my bearings has not been easy. But I applaud my humble beginnings--that is 5 posts on this blog since I started in April in the midst of looking at homes, etc.

I came across these websites on writing and I wanted to post them here so I can use them as reference.

Also of note is my joining in Camp Nanowrimo in the end of March.

Just Write - Overdue Writing

Being out-of-town and caring my son's surgery has taken my time off of writing. I am trying to get my head back in gear. To do this I have been looking at Writer's Digest (WD) and Jeff Goins' Writing Tribe. I wanted to respond to one I found in WD.

Full disclosure: I never bought into any of the myths so I'm really sharing to pat myself in the back because I've known these myths all along. It's always good to be validated.

Blackbird

I was introduced to this song by my daughter's chorus. Thanks, Ms. Trobaugh. Crazy that I've only heard of it now.
My daughter learned about it at age 10. That's cool.
Here are the lyrics--
Blackbird The Beatles Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise. Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free. Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night. Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night. Blackbird singing…
