And She Rambles…Randomly…

 

words rose

΅〜  ೋ ♥ ೋ 〜΅

╰⊰✿  I had a process. A writing process. The words I would take in from everything around me…books, songs, the interwebs, a conversation…they would join and rejoin and then form into something I crafted, shaped, molded into a poem….my version of a poem. I never really did think of my poems as traditional. More prose-like. More unique, or so I tried. Yet…they always felt lacking to me in some way. Although, you guys…you beautiful souls would comment and say the most unfathomably wondrous things to me. I would breathe a sigh of relief as though I had been holding my breath until reading your feedback. It was absolutely glorious. Addictive.

During my hiatus I’ve been reading, as mentioned in the last post, but I’ve also been watching, learning…becoming thirstier for even more knowledge…other writers. Writers I admire. Some are famous in the traditional ‘household name’ sort of way, and some maybe you’ve never heard of. Maybe you have. I’ll gladly share if you ask, but this is about me learning what they do. How they do it. How they consistently write their books. How they stay so very focused. How they manage to juggle the online distractions of Facebook Pages, Twitter, Google+, Instagram. How they manage to create their art and yet stay in touch, grow their connections, day in and day out. I’ve learned so much, just enough to make me dare to think I might be able to emulate them, in their commitment…their diligence to their passion to create and stay connected.

I’ve experimented. I’ve been making amazing friends via my Facebook Page which is over there to your right (bottom if you’re on your phone) and also on Twitter. Instagram is a new excursion for me and one I’m not fully versed in yet, but I am trying. I’m putting it all out there. My kids, my crazy chaotic life. Mostly though, I’m trying to understand how to connect and create. I’ve not written anything longer than a Facebook Post or Tweet in the months I’ve been away, well…maybe an email counts as writing. If so, then I suppose I have written.

IMG_19918066605765I have also, now that I’m thinking about it, written a few ‘stream of conscious’ book reviews on Goodreads. I call them such because they were just like this post. Me just typing my thoughts as they come to mind…that’s it. I don’t know if they’re any good, that wasn’t my intention when writing them. They were just my thoughts and feelings on them when I finished reading. I’ve not reread them, knowing me…I’d attempt to rewrite them. I’m learning it’s okay to just write and then let it go. Exactly my hopes for this post.

A few of the aforementioned books have touched me so very deeply I cannot, even in this overly long post, express their impact on my entire way of thinking…of myself, of my life, of my overwhelming desire to write, of my connections with each of you. I feel as though the years of conditioning that life has put me through has fallen away, so to speak, and left me free to recreate…reconstruct myself, yet again. An absolute metamorphosis.

I would very much like to continue to be so free thinking with what I share with you. I would like to share what I’m learning, what I desire to learn, what I’m reading, what I long to read, what I’m thinking, and so very much more. I imagine it will be different for you as well as for me and may take some getting used to. However, through this I very much hope and wish you gain a better insight into my world….and I in yours….

Until next time…~ ✿⊱╮

    • You are awesome sweet and wonderful and amazing! Thank you so so very much, Bulldog, for your ever so kind praise…your support…your encouragement. I do cherish you sweet friend!! You’ve given me a huge smile I shall certainly wear for a long long time!

  2. Being free thinking and sharing your perspectivces is a great way to inspire other people and each person will take something different out of it and run along different lines of inspiration but that is part of the fun, especially if it fed back to you, so you can go discover something you had previously not.

    I think that is part of being a blogger, to give people immersive writing and to free the mind, I am looking forward to where you go from here, it is good to see you diversifying, you write really well and poetry is just one string to your bow, your other styles deserve to get an audience as well.

    You are a post perfectionist and may be blind to what your readers see but we will let you off because of you hunger to learn – that fire inspires others, it is infectious. Many reviews start stream of consciousness, your unedited real feelings about a book are the most honest and best things to anchor your review. Keep doign what you are doing and I for one will be happy.

    • I do very much love the idea of the shared inspiration, giving and receiving without end. You are the bestest to be so encouraging in this new writing endeavor of mine….exploring this new path with all of you makes me feel giddy and excited, opposed to the trepidation I felt before posting again.

      You do encourage me so very much, especially sharing the infectious nature of the hunger to learn…the fire we (all us creatives) feel to continually consume, ruminate, and then share with others (each in our own unique ways)…thus beginning the cycle over again. It’s all so exciting and inspiring! As well as making me proper happy and feeling so blessed to have made such incredible connections with such wondrously magical people!

      You also encourage me with the book reviews…thank you! I shall keep it real as I can and hope to one day write them more thoroughly intriguing and full of enticement as you always do.

      • Your words…just yes! Book reviews are something you can have confidence in doing, you continually think about what you read and you note things down so you are there already, as your Goodreads reviews prove. I love the changes on the blog, your makeover makes things feel more crisp. Of course I will forever love the old version because it has been with me since we stated chatting, but this new reconstruction(!) representing a new phase looks great as well, although I do miss your soundtrack on the sidebar.

        • Your encouragement makes me super happy and all filled up with encouragement to continue on improving, honing, my book reviewing skills! You know me, I like to do things a little (if not a lot) differently than anyone else hehe. I am so very happy you love the blog layout changes…over the moon proper happy! It is difficult for me to get used to the new look as well, since the other had been with me from the beginning of this blog…with only a few minor updates here and there through the years. I am so very hopeful all these changes, both in content and appearance, herald even more wonderful things to come! The new look is an ongoing work in progress as I am still tweaking things here and there. Thank you so much for all your awesomazing support and magical words!
