invitation no. 1: begin

It isn’t important why you stopped. It matters why you begin.

There are good reasons for quitting things, but sometimes the important thing is to begin…or to start again. You could lament all the reasons why you don’t write. Some of them are valid. Many are reasonable. Most are understandable.

None of them are important.

Spend some time thinking about why you write (or want to write). Doodle a web or make a list. Map your heart or pour out a poem. Spend some time thinking about why you want to write.


Open your blog and write a post. It doesn’t have to be about writing…it just needs to be written!

    1. Oh me too!!! So much! I am so picky with my produce! I, however, have learned to shop at just one store…easier with Evan, but miss the days when I could go so many places…even just one for the day.


      1. Hi Bonnie! I did not get the comment….Not sure why! I checked all the settings. I took off the number verification. Hopefully it will work for you! But I feel your pain! I have trouble on some websites too!!
