I am always trying to remember to journal. I used to journal everyday for an hour before bed. Now I have such a hard time even just sitting down to do it! I hate that shift in my schedule and hope that forcing myself to do it will eventually get me back in that habit. Other than that ongoing battle, I am working on my chapter book and poems. I think my poems will end up being a part of my story because I have this concept I can't shake. Someone close to me recently shared a childhood trauma with me that I can't get out of my head. I keep putting myself in that moment and have moments of word clarity from that situation. I don't want to give to much away but I'm scared/ exited to put these words into a story!
How does the process make me feel?
I feel like my process is so irritating. I have so many ideas and snippets written but I am having a hell of a time putting it all together. I really can't wait to see it all together though.
What am I reading now?
I am reading the Stephen King book and also lots of anthropology journals for my cultural anthropology class. I would love to have time to read for pleasure but the truth of the matter is, I don't.
