The next post…

I really don’t have any kind of system for coming up with posts. I just wait and see what grabs my attention. I might get a flash or I might see something that really speaks to me. I never know. I’ve even gotten all of the way through the week to the morning of posting without knowing what I was going to say, but even then it still works itself out.

Since I post on Sundays, I take a breather on Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Around Thursday it’s really nice if a potential post thought has come to the fore. I do appreciate that because then I can sit with it for a couple of days before I give it a go, because finding the right/write words is very important to me.

Dragonflies are a big theme in my children’s books, and they are also kinda my blog mascots!

Well, here I am on Saturday evening. This title, The next post…, came to me out of the blue a couple of days ago, and as nothing else has been vying for my attention, I’ve got to go with it. Unfortunately, that was all that was whispered into my ear, so I’ve been pushing it around in my mind wondering exactly what I’m supposed to do with it.

Well, as this is my fourth paragraph, I guess that this was what I was supposed to talk about, my un-method of writing, my un-process. For someone who has been an exemplary planner and organizer extraordinaire most of her life, this un-stuff reaches me into the realm of pure faith. I have learned to trust that I will somehow make it to that next post topic. One way or another, it will find me or I will find it.

  1. Ideas are an interesting thing. I like to see myself as a dream catcher of sorts, that if I just learn to listen well enough, I’l never be void of ideas. I go through the same process as you somewhat. Just sit and listen, and the ideas come. Anyway, thanks for this post!
