The Magic in Writing

Day 29 of 30 Days Challenge

Magic Words

The first book I remember reading that was about writing is Becoming a Writer by Dorothea Brande. She talked about the magic in writing.

And encouraging anyone with the desire that they could be a writer too.

I believe my brother got it for me. He was good about purchasing something that was what I was interested in. One time he had given me a book on horses. I still love horses and riding.

The next wonderful writing book I read was by Brenda Ueland. I’ve read this one several times and can’t stress how her words of encouragement are powerful and real and make one feel like they can be a writer.

In reading the writing books it was the first time I’d seen the words magic and writing together. It is years later and I still feel the magic. I understand what they are talking about.

Day 9 of 30 Day Challenge

Days of Retirement

I didn’t think I would reach retirement or I should say I didn’t think I’d be able to retire. Thought I would have to work till I died.

Day 3 of 30 Day Challenge

What Did I Really Want to Do?

I envy the people who have the jobs of their dreams. They are happy and excited to go to work every day. They
contribute to the work they are doing and fascinated with the outcome. They are satisfied to be doing what they were meant to do.

Somehow all that passed me by. I never found my work, what I really wanted to do, what I was meant to do. I dreamed of raising and training horses, but it didn’t happen. Probably my fault.

Day 2 of the Writing Challenge

Finding that New Information Can Be a Thrill

All my life I’ve gotten thrilled when finding new information. When growing up I loved horses, what young girl doesn’t? I still have a love for horses I am glad I never grew out of. Finding new information about horses and riding was certainly fun and IĀ couldn’t wait to try it out on my horse. Continue reading Day 2 of the Writing Challenge

30 Day Writing Challenge

This is the beginning of a 30 Day Challenge suggested by Jeff Goins, a writer I follow. Today is day one.

The Challenges of Challenges

These challenges can be challenging. I always wonder can I do it? Will anything I put down be any good if I do get it done? Will anyone care?

I haven’t sold any writing since sometime in the 90s. I sold two short stories back then. Continue reading 30 Day Writing Challenge
