Time for Camp NaNoWriMo!
Greetings fellow travelers,
This past week I did 6 days out of 7 days of Morning Pages. I missed one day because I received news that the recovery center where I work needs to find a new agency and my job is uncertain in the future. I find it hard to write when I’m emotional.
My Artist’s Date was working on my business plan using Shannon Munn’s self-employment workbook for disabled people. I also read more from Right Brain Business Plan by Jennifer Lee.
I walked 20 minutes around my house late at night while holding hands with my boyfriend The moon was beautiful and so were the rabbits and fireflies.
Today, I officially started the Writing Diet with my Sparkling Path Walkers group at my house. I’m recording my results in my cellphone. Today I was also sorted into my August cabin in for Camp NaNoWriMo with some friends of mine from The Artist’s Way Circle. I am going to be a NaNoWriMo Rebel by rewriting my novel “Two Step” that I first wrote during NaNoWriMo back in 2008. I have never rewritten something with 50,000 words before.
Issue of recovery is pace myself as I take on so many wonderful new projects this summer. I want to make sure I have a lot of fun mixed in with my projects.
Greetings fellow travelers,
I wrote 5 days out of 7 days in my Morning Pages. I decided to keep on using the Artist’s Way tools.
My Artist’s Date was reading Jennifer Lee’s “Right Brain Business Plan. I studied Business & Management at Alverno College where I took a small business course. I learned the traditional way of creating business plans. With the “Right Brain Business Plan” however I will be exploring other creative ways to express my business goals. So far I am enjoying reading the book. I was able to get a Kindle e-book for $7.99 and a free app to download on my PC and it’s been working very well. I am new to e-books, but I am enjoying them very much.
I walked twice to and from work. The temperature was very warm and I got winded very easily. However, I am glad that I walked.
Issue of recovery is that I decided to put my health first and starting Sunday July 1st I am starting “The Writing Diet” by Julia Cameron which focuses on health using Artist’s Way tools like Morning Pages, Artist’s Dates, and Walking. I know my greatest weight loss was during a time of intense writing on very core issues in my life and I could feel myself getting healthier day by day. I have assembled two support groups around me of Body Buddies, one online and one face to face. I have a Kindle version of the book on my PC and on my phone. I have already read through the book cover to cover and I feel I have sense of the direction of this course. I have decided to create the course to cover 12 weeks. First week is Part One covering all the tools, the second week from there on each week I will focus on two essays and two tasks. I am fond of the 12 week structure of the course. I am looking forward to my summer!
