JUST Take a Deep Breath . . . and Write

This is the tenth post in this April challenge, and it's getting to the point where the end of the month seems so long, long away! I long for another Sunday just to take a break.

Then I remember when I had, what I thought at the time, was a stellar blogging idea - to have daily writing prompts. As you can imagine, that didn't last, though the intent was good - to keep the creative brain in full functioning gear with quick (50-300 word) writing prompts. Unfortunately, I was thinking more in lines of a creative writing site, not a blog.

With that past idea in mind, I have to remember that I can do this challenge. I JUST need to take a deep breath . . .

and write! Surely some days won't be as interesting as others (like today, I figure), while others will be more inspired (like day H).

Today, I am going to JUST take that deep breath, because I am soooo exhausted that I didn't even make it to church last night. And hopefully tomorrow I will be back to my normal, creative self and write!


  1. I actually love this post, it's interesting to me! Good idea and something we all need to remember to do. :)

  2. My dear Nancy, I think the post is interesting in the fact that many feel like you do, me included. I'm trying to keep the breathers at hand now.
    I want to thank you for the gift card. I got it yesterday. And the pic of Los Cabos also fit me well, hahaha.

  3. I hope you did find time to breathe and resettle into yourself to make it through until Sunday when you get to take another break :-)

  4. Breaks are necessary, indeed. :) I hope you get back into the swing of things soon!

  5. Great advice and, I'm sure, something we're all needing at this point.

  6. This made me smile and I did find it creative. You need to Just take a deep breath? Why not make it part of the challenge, works for me!

    Now, enjoy the break and we shall see you tomorrow ;)

    1. Been taking breathers all day. And feeling better. :)

  7. Oh, I just did (took a deep breath as I read this), and it felt so good.

  8. Sound advice. We all have moments when we're overwhelmed.

  9. I've been feeling that way when it comes to work from my old job kreeping back. I keep procrastinating because I really don't want to do it, but if I don't, it continues to hang over my head so I can't enjoy my writing as much as I'd like to.

  10. Amen to that *says goodnight to the challenge*!

  11. I look forward to reading your inspired "H" post! :) You can do it. Hope you got some rest. "It's Friday, but Sunday's coming!" ;)

  12. Just taken it easy today - good plan.

    Thanks for checking out my AtoZ.

  13. Great idea, we can sometimes psyche ourselves out by being too nervous or excited. Got some great e-books with the gift card. Thanks again.

  14. I feel the same way as you do. I have good intentions to blog, but sometimes have a hard time keeping up with it. And other days I feel like I don't have anything important or interesting to say. But it's important to keep writing! I like your post today because it's nice to see that others feel the same way I do!


Your comments add wonderful flavors. Thank you!
