1 Reason 2 Write….

People!  What can I say?  I love people.  Communicating with others about life, hearing their points of view, and establishing new relationships and even friendships through writing is way better than pushing and shoving  through my brain – solo-.  It gets a little chaotic in there, and honestly, one idea cancels the next.  My thoughts abuse each other,  and I’m left staring at a blinking cursor.  Who wants that?

SO – Join me!

I’m an exhausted and energetic (See how that works?  My brain is an oxymoron.) wife, mother, teacher, runner —  How cliche.

I love my life, but I’m searching for my writing voice.  Here’s this blip  blog, where I envision connecting with other moms, wives, teachers, runners, writers, whiners, and winers.   Let’s write together.

What should we write about next?

Watching Her Grow

She’s only five.

Her fuzzy Frozen themed robe hugs her little body while she grasps Dollie, eats a lollipop, and gazes at the cartoons.

She has no idea she’s my reason to write.

She has no idea every time I look up she takes my breath away.

Lost in her innocence.

Both of us.

I want to reach across the room – from my armchair to the red couch that holds her –

and

touch her soft cheek,

kiss her forehead,

brush her hair away from her face,

whisper

I love you.

She’s my reason for writing right now.

She’s only five.

What’s Your Reason?

I write, but I’d like to write more.  Like so many bloggers, I’m a wife, a mother,  a runner, a teacher, a writer, a friend, a whiner, and a wine-r.  The problem is that everyone is all of those things now.

The gift of blogging:  writing and immediately publishing.  Never before have we been able to share our words with the world by pushing a single button.

The challenge of blogging:  reading all the things we want to say, have said, or have heard.  It’s all out there.  Being original has never been this difficult – ever.

So, what do you want me to write about? Let’s keep it clean, but keep it real.  I promise to write if you promise to read.   Deal?

Just give me 1reason2write.
