Looking at the World Like a Writer

Seven more nights of SOLSC and I am planning to finish strong.

Today has been a great day.  While I drove around and caught up on errands after a day on the road yesterday, and in preparation of leaving town for a week, I was flooded by fleeting story ideas.  I don't think I have the creativity and perseverance to write a book.  But blogging and the routine and accountability has convinced me that daily writing can be a great way to process the events of the day.  And my senses are heightened.  I feel like I am looking at the world like a writer.  I am looking for stories.  And since my friend Marie, another SOLSC blogger told me last week about Blogging Tuesday, I will have an accountability outlet I can live with.

Gotta go pack for my trip, but I have a great blog post coming soon!


  1. It sounds like you have a great writing plan. I feel like you do, that I'm seeing the world a little differently and paying more careful attention to small things that could make a good story. Have a great trip!

  2. "My senses heightened"-exactly! I agree with you and writing does help you process what happened during the day.

  3. You're in the home stretch now! It's crazy to think about how much we've all written this month, isn't it?

    BTW: Beth wrote an interesting slice a couple of days ago that I've been keeping open on my desktop since I want to try something like it. Just thought I'd share it with you in case you need some inspiration this week,

    1. Stacey, this is cool. I am totally going to use it. But the post will be longer. I am packing for a trip and going to take a second look at what I NEED to take. Thanks for sharing the link.
