My Journey to Become a Writer 04/07/2024 Post #98

Informative Image

This post is pre-written, since today is my day off.

I believe in the book of Genesis.

I believe we were created in the image of a Creative God.

I believe that He worked six days and rested for one.

I believe we were made to do the same.

Taking a day of rest can do wonders for a person’s creativity.

Reflecting on what got done the preceding week can be a big help when discouragement sets in.

Sometimes in life all that can be seen is the mountains looming ahead that have yet to be scaled; but if we will pause, take time to look back, and reflect, we can usually see a better view of just how far we’ve come.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

Since this is pre-posted, I’m only going to speculate; but knowing my habits, I’d guess that I did Day 98 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through L.A. Writer’s Lab, in order to keep up with my daily journaling, and took a break from the rest of my work.

Hopefully, I also rejoiced that my taxes were done; but I can’t say that yet for sure – so I’m signing off now to go and try to get those done.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Jody Susan

Even the valleys of life can be beautiful, if we will take the time to look around us:

One of the great adventures of my life was cross-country skiing up to this lake and then coming back down in the dark. It was definitely worth the work and the risk.

I had this post scheduled; but for some reason it didn’t publish, though I’m not sure why… anyhow, I’m sending it out today. Oops I just figured out that I had the “publish date” set for today at 5 p.m. instead of yesterday. Oops.


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.
