BLOGWORDS – 17 May 2017 – NEW WEEK NEW FACE NEW MONTH NEW ME – SPECIAL EDITION – SWAMP MODE

NEW WEEK NEW FACE NEW MONTH NEW ME – SPECIAL EDITION – SWAMP MODE – writing recovery continues

 

Bronchitis is GONE—PRAISE GOD—and RECOVERY MODE

is now SWAMP MODE,

aka CAVE TIME

as in WRITING CAVE, which we writers are notorious for hiding out in to get some words done, as in writing.

 

This story, though, this series, is set in a tenuous, as in fabricated setting, sort of a mash up of river and marsh / swamp, otherwise known as black river which is prevalent in the South. Saisons is a town somewhere between Columbia and Charleston, along the Santee River, close enough to the ocean to host marshes.

Ergo, SWAMP MODE!! Ergo, WRITING MODE. As in #AMWRITING, gotta make some words.

 

Interviews are back with a fun feature this Thursday (contain your excitement) but Wreading Wednesdays and What’s in Your Kitchen are still suspended. RemApWriMo flopped, sort of, but I have designated June as a second chance, RemJUWriMo!

 

Did I mention, IT’S GOOD TO BE INDIE!!!

BLOGWORDS – Sunday 30 April 2017 – FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – WISDOM – IT’S GOOD TO BE INDIE

FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – WISDOM – IT’S GOOD TO BE INDIE

 

The best laid plans of mice and men…

 

It’s called fellowship for a reason. It’s a relationship. It’s a connection, communication. Obedience is not just following a set of rules, or list of ingredients in a recipe. A sacred formula.

Relationships aren’t like that. Relationships ebb and flow, they expand and contract. Like breathing. Like the ocean.

They grow.

 

And we grow in a relationship by listening. Talking and sharing. And listening.

Without it, without listening, we cannot truly know another person, their heart, their soul. Without it, we cannot know the will of Father.

 

Oh, but when we do… When we listen, and hear Him, hear His voice, know His heart… It is music so sweet.

And when we’re in communion with one another, with Father, we can trust that our choices and decisions are in line with His, with each other.

But there are those times, those moments, we charge on ahead without counsel or instruction. And sometimes that can turn into disaster.

But sometimes… Sometimes those little inklings turn into gold. Sometimes those random moments beget unexpected advantage. Sometimes, those unexpected twists are wisdom in disguise.

And when we’ve made a decision that seems like it didn’t bring the results we thought, well, perhaps, it brings a better result than we imagined. Because maybe—maybe—Father God knew something we, well, I didn’t know. Because He knew I needed that down time, this past month of April to catch up.

But not my writing, not exactly. To catch up on me. On focus.

 

But it turns out, cutting back didn’t really afford me |all the time| I had anticipated for writing. Turns out, |all the time| actually stalled my Muse. No, no my Muse doesn’t stall out. My creativity is what stalled out because I was (and this is POW between my eyes) turning to myself to get the thing done. I unplugged from Him. And in unplugging from my Muse, from Holy Spirit, my creativity deflated.

I thought my plan was a good one. I thought if I put aside some of my other writing, namely interviews on the blog, that I’d have oh-so-much more time to devote to writing my stories. It was a good plan, it made good sense.

But what happened instead, was nothing happened. Or at least not what I had hoped would happen. The 50K I thought I’d write—I didn’t. At this writing (Friday night) I’ve just tipped 20K.

The best laid plans…

But Father knows. He always knows. He took my little plan and made something better out of it.

And the “good to be Indie?” I made an executive decision to push back my release dates! Because I can do that. Because I’m Indie… Because that’s what Father would have said if I’d stopped to listen in the first place.

 

And since I’ve done that, since I’m listening, I’m rockin-n- rollin the writing—both the blog AND the story.

Because that’s what communion is about. That’s what communication does. That’s what happens in relationship.

 

And that’s wisdom.
