Writing Goals

I am lucky to have a job where my co-workers are creative types. Really helps get me inspired. They are also super productive and organized (qualities of librarians of course)! They are constantly discussing or planning ideas and events. One of those events, is a weekly NaNoWriMo writing session! Maybe this could help me finally finish that book I have always wanted to write.

I will admit, I have toned down my notebook and stationary addiction (sorry U.S. economy). But I still have one notebook full of scribbles, stories and some totally illegible ideas that I jotted down quickly to get them out of this crazy brain of mine. I think it is time to tend to that.

I am not the girl who could write a novel. Too long, too detailed and too much work. I decided one day, long ago, to use my photographs to write short stories. I have a very sloppy notebook, (aforementioned), with a small print taped to the left page and a story on the right. It makes writing fun.

Thinking about this blog, NaNoWriMo, writing in general etc., I thought I might set an easy goal for myself. I recently wrote about my blog being more about photos and less about writing. My goal is to write at least 3 lines to accompany any photo I post on the blog. It can’t be about the location of the photo or anything obvious. Hopefully this will get the creative juices flowing!

Let’s see how I do!!

 

New Graphic!

So, I finally revamped my website/blog. For a long time I have wanted to ditch the blog on the main page, but I could never really figure out how to do it! Well, I ordered what had to be the fattest WordPress for Dummies book and found my answer!

I made the front page graphic in Canva.com

If you are not familiar with the website, you HAVE to check it out. I don’t know what the heck I did without it before!! I made a few different designs and finally settled on one.

I tried this one for a few days, but I didn’t LOVE it:
