Thank you for joining me for coffee today. I have a new Keurig so I have some new flavors to share! Caramel? Dark Roast? Hot chocolate perhaps?
If we were having coffee I would tell you a new moon is this Sunday. The new moon cycle is a time of new beginnings. I will do my tarot pull for the new moon Sunday.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I had many new concepts come to my attention this week. One was Memento Mori — it is a short story written by Nathan Nolen. There is also the use of the phrase to remind yourself you will die. It is an absolute truth, so you must choose to live every day. It is the idea to not forget that your daily life is important. I am still thinking about how this will manifest itself in my life. It ties into my one word for the year of More. I want my daily life to have more of what is essential to me.
Another concept that came to me was from the Rebel Author Podcast. I am drawn to sections of books and short stories often. I copy lines and ideas in my notebook. Gabriella Piera talked about photocopying the section and making a note of the craft concept, why you liked it and then giving it a category so if you having trouble writing dialogue, or a character you can have your set of mentor texts to refer to altogether.
If we were having coffee I would tell you using poetry as a prewrite idea and questions for poetry prompts came up this week. One idea was from a blog and the other was from a podcast. I am going to work on these ideas over the next week.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I need to buy more notebooks. I have some blank ones but they are not the RIGHT ones. I have not had to time to get the notebooks I want. They are not ones I can order online. I need to find a harder backed notebook with a pocket.
Would you like some water? Some more coffee? I never seem to be able to get enough. I am going to the kitchen for a refill.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I had dinner at Weber Grill this week and it was delicious. I love their pretzel rolls and beef brisket. It is so delicious.
If we were having coffee, I would want to know what your week looked like! I love reading everyone else’s coffee share posts at Eclectic Alli’s Blog link!
