Shake and Bakes are my quarterly check-ins (CHICKENS!). They used to be weekly – but this year they are happening in line with the moon. I use these posts to … shake out the happenings of my work and my life in general in an attempt to Shake off the bad and Bake in the good. It’s about … gratitude, paying attention and now..living by the moon.
~~o~~ 1st Quarter CROW/RAVEN Moon ~~o~~
The wind blows…. and snow…more snow… Raven and I continue our work on the book. We’re up to about 11.5K. I’m thinking this draft will be around 80K.
Que sera sera.
I’m a bit down today. I think it might be the weather. In truth – it has been a good and productive quarter for me but it’s a day of small sorrow today. Not sure why.
A day to curl up with a good book.
We moved into the first quarter of this moonth yesterday. I was deep in the reVisions and didn’t have it in me to post anything here. In truth, it took me most of the day to get my butt into the chair to work on the book. Once in, all went well… but there is still so much… Fear? Resistance?
I’m not even sure what I fear. That it might suck? So what?
The only way to get better as a writer is… to write…. and write and write and REWRITE. I know this. I also know that I am learning a hell of a lot with this book. I am writing in a whole new way and that is good. It’s just… scary is all. And it might well SUCK. But I won’t know til I finish the thing. And, right now, I can only … keep on. Keep on.
So. I. Shall.
Reviewing my Intentions for this Moonth and strengthening ACTIONs
Θ (theta) earth – home – touch
Φ (phi) air – relationships – scent
Χ (chi) fire – work – vision
Ξ (ksi) water – health – taste
Ψ (psi) quintessence – spirit – hearing/listening
And, with that… I’m off to eat a sammich and dive below some covers to read a while.
Yep – that is Jian Ghomeshi with Moxy Fruvous.
Thanks for popping by.
Go easy ~p
