Waggish Writer Week 8 Reflections

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Waggish Writer.

Week 8 feels that it has flown by. What I am pleased about my previous week is that I was consistent in showcasing my website to the universe via Facebook.


Something I know that I will need to do in the future is move forward in sharing it with the wider universe as I have only been sharing with my Facebook friends. I will plan to move into that space in time. I feel that this time is working on being consistent and learning what works best for my flow of creativity.


This week was another pause in my creativity in "Divine Devices" and "Samurai Sisters." "Misventures" seems to have taken over my thought process. I am very interested in sharing the adventures with the universe. It is currently in a high level drafting phase. In my head, I know the general flow of the story. I will be forgiving of myself of not doing work on "Divine Devices" and "Samurai Sisters" because I am still being creative.


Another item on my to do list is to refine my Journalist persona. I had reached out to the newspaper I previously worked at to see if I may post my old articles. As I did not hear a response, I will plan to expand my Journalist persona to showcase my work for the Wasthenaw Voice. I will cite the work and include links to the main page to be mindful that the newspaper is the first publishing grounds.


A danger to my creative flow is Facebook. I easily get lost in the movie section because I am fascinated by the stories as a majority are involving lessons that relate to life. I wish there was a feature to hide the movie section away. I do not need that feature to steal away my precious creative time.


It is hard to believe that it is halfway to July's end with August just around the corner. I am excited for August because I will be embarking on a new enterprise of a part-time babysitting job. The kids are wonderful, a little mischievous the previous time I babysat them, but I enjoy them immensely. The best part is that there will be a period when both boys go for a nap where I can sneak in some writing (after I tidy up the house a little bit after the whirlwind known the toddler and one year old).


I miss diving into my writing. With the shift in my days with babysitting and working as a barista, I want to block some time in my day to work on my stories. I've also noticed a lack of posts for Waggish Writer.


One of the things I want to avoid with Waggish Writer is losing the joy in writing. As I'm writing now, I'm feeling the flow of creativity where my brain is shut off with the words coming from my heart flowing down my arms into my fingertips to create my message to the world. I will note this flow, so I can carry it on into my other days to bring back my creative engine to full steam and get going with my creative projects.


Thanks for being patient with my weekly post being a day late. Hope everyone is staying safe and well!
