It’s official. I am off my rocker.
For those of you unfamiliar of the term NaBloPoMo it stands for “Nation Blog Posting Month”
For the month of November, I accepted the challenge, I am going to post daily.
Be it a huge post, or simply a picture with a caption.
The cool things about the NaBloPoMo blog is that if you want (or are struggling for inspiration) you can use their writing prompts.
Today’s prompt is:
“What is your favourite part of writing?”
I have always loved to write. I have TONS of journals, diaries, and notebooks all full of my thoughts and ideas.
Things that I loved (I love to clip out magazines and put them in/on my journals), things that made me angry and sad.
When I got married my daily writing took the back burner, instead of spending hours writing I now spent my time working, tending to our tiny basement suite and of course loving my husband.
When I got pregnant any writing that I did get done before, suddenly never happened. I was lucky if I remembered to brush my hair (what? I own a hairbrush?!)
Now with two small boys getting the chance to write is few and far between. Between the laundry and snuggles, dishes and diapers, finding time to write is near impossible.
I charish the time I have with my family, my iphone is full pictures and videos to prove it.
But sometimes I just want a moment to myself, to collect my thoughts, to empty my brain and relax.
My favourite part of writing* is the time I spend by myself.
Selfish? Maybe. Needed? Definitely.
* My other favourite thing, is being able to brag about my boys! I just love them.
