open invitation no. 60: oops

Sometimes things go haywire.

Even the best laid plans and the most honorable intentions can be derailed from time to time. The important thing is we pick up and keep going. If it’s been a hot minute since you’ve shared a story, remember that it’s okay. You can always make space to write this week.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

  1. Ruth, I’m glad you are here with another interesting topic; I missed the post for last week. This is just a test to see if my comment gets through. It didn’t seem to last time. Thank you for the lovely Sharing Our Stories Magic site you’ve created here.


      1. Denise – I gasped a bit when you said you tossed out your old journals in your twenties. I did the same thing. I threw away journals from 15-29 just after I got married. I do wish I had them. I stopped writing for twenty years. Then started again when I turned 50. It never leaves you. If you’re a writer – you will find a way to write. Thank you for this!


    1. I connected with this line: In the summer, I’m responsible for making those hours productive. So true and sometimes so daunting. I like your idea of a DONE list. I’m going to try it! Thank you, Donnetta!


    1. Another good book? Really, Julie!? I’m putting this one on the top of my list! I’ve been married 36 years, and I was just commenting to a young friend this week that marriage is certainly complicated, but well worth it. Congratulations Julie and Joe!
