How to Feel Like Writing Again

Great ideas! I will probably try a few in the next couple of weeks as I am really struggling with motivation right now and I have a ton of projects started.

We’ve all felt it at one time or another. The story loses its shine and you’re left with a half-completed story. Why does this happen, and how do you continue?

“You’re driving.” – Connect the Dots, A Daily Post Writing Prompt

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Connect the Dots.”

Open your nearest book to page 82. Take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow.

The nearest book to me at the time I read the prompt was my High School daughter’s pleasure read, “The Naturals” by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. A book she has been trying to talk me into reading.

However, the real story behind this post is my daughter and the words “You’re driving.” She is one of those teens that loves to be driven around. She has no desire to drive. She has even so far confessed that she wants to move to a big city like New York or Chicago so she doesn’t have to drive and she can take the bus.

The irony is she just got her driver’s license Monday. And today, I told her, “You’re driving.” Now, her book is mocking me. Maybe I should read the book.

Indirect Light – Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadows

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed.”

Shadow and Light unboxing

 

Took this picture of the shadow cast by the sun shining through my parent’s lead glass window in their front door. The only alteration was the addition of my blog information.  – December 2011

DogPile and other business

I am sorry about taking such a long break. The last couple of weeks of December has been rough for me and my family. I was sick  in bed with the flu for a week. On Christmas day, one family member and a close family friend passed away. During the month of December, I have been dealing with the situation that is the inspiration for the poem below:dogpile wunboxingkim

Gone, But Not Forgotten

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”

I have enclosed the photo  of our former home. We were the lucky ones to sell a house in less than six months in 2011(in the US). Upon sharing the photo, I felt the need to share the poem I wrote during the process of selling it. Our memories of this house are strong, bonding my family.

Help – Family Needed

 by Kim Hewison

My house needs a new family

It’s time for us to be moving on,

Back to where we came from,

Six hundred and seventy miles away.

It’s been a good house,

Warm in winter, cool in summer,

Protecting us from storm after storm,

Solid under our feet

When the earth shook around us,

It’s heard our laughter echo off it’s walls,

Sheltering us in times of sorrow.

Time to say good bye.

Time to hear the pitter-patter of new feet.

Digging for Roots – Home vs Home

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly writing challenge: “Digging for Roots.”

“In this perpetual tug-of-war between now and then, finding the footing to develop a sense of home is difficult, if not impossible, particularly for those who may find themselves stuck between cities, states, or countries.”

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
