My Journey to Become a Writer 02/20/2024 Post #51

Today was another very full day. I’m trying to get better about shutting down with at least some margin before bedtime, so I’m just going to summarize.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

I worked on creating a business card through Canva in preparation for an upcoming conference. It’s still a work in progress; but here’s what the back of the card looks like so far:

This is referring to a series of books I’m hoping to complete and publish.

My grandparents’ barn was built in 1861, the year our country went to war with itself.

In 2018 I watched it be dismantled.

The barn was rebuilt and opened as a wedding venue in 2020, to celebrate two becoming one, in a time when once again, our nation was going through great division.

A lot happened in between and afterwards, and I’d like to share those stories.

It took me a while to figure out how to make a QR code; but it turns out that it’s pretty easy to generate one through Canva. I thought I had to use some other App; but that isn’t necessary.

I did Day 51 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through LA Writer’s Lab.  

I also met with some other writers to work on editing a couple of pieces.

What Am I Afraid of Doing Next in My Journey as a Writer?

I’m kind of concerned that I’ll stay in the habit of working too late and not stepping away. I tend to do that.

Stuff I find myself saying: I need a real chair. My rear is falling asleep.

How Am I Balancing the Different Aspects of Being a Writer?

I’m skipping the rest of the questions and shutting down my computer at a semi-decent hour (it’s nearly 8p.m.) – that seems like the best form of balance for me right now.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Here’s the poem I just posted:


I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
