Weekend Coffee Share

A Cup of Coffee and a Conversation

Welcome to the holiday weekend! I love the photo above. It makes me smile today. Do you have favorite photos? Are they on your phone or somewhere else? Do you look at them often?

I am having my regular black coffee. What would you like today? I have a pitcher of ice water as well. Let’s use the pitcher I inherited from my Oma. She used to make iced tea in it long ago. The kids use it for cherry Kool-Aid now!

If we were having coffee I would tell you I shared some stories about growing up in my newsletter this week. If you want in on the inner circle secrets you can sign up here. I also talk about the red thread of fate and how that applies to my friendships.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I used two notebooks this week – both black. I have a notebook with thin pages that works perfectly with my fountain pen in the mornings. I keep that one at home. It is part of my daily writing routine. I have a smaller black notebook I write in the rest of the day. I guess I have an at home notebook and a going out notebook!

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am writing fiction every day by combining the Storyaday prompt for the challenge in September and the Sarah Selecky Daily prompt. I like the challenge of combining them and the process lends itself to unique and weird stories which I love to read and write. Most of the those stories have gone into the little black notebook.

If we were having coffee I would tell you my writing intensive started this week. I posted my first assignment and did my reading reflection. I received some lovely comments about what I posted so that was motivating. It is a piece I can expand. We used the prompt “I don’t remember” which is one Natalie Goldberg writes about as well.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I had a conversation with two people this week about how I write so much! I am working on a workshop about this topic. Unpacking my process around writing has been an interesting process and more difficult than I think it should be! I welcome any questions you have about my process or what you would want to know. Leave them in the comments or email me at tammybreitweiser@gmail.com.

If we were having coffee I would tell you it was a full moon this week! The energy felt like it shifted for sure. With the school schedule getting more robust this week the energy was different too. I had the new adventure of making contact with my kindergarten parents and students. We did our virtual open house which was fun! Cats visited the screen as happens in this time! Next week starts live instruction and everyone is excited. All of my kids are adorable and I am learning about their favorite songs, things to do and unique things about them.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am trying to find a boxing class near me. It is something that keeps coming up in my writing about an activity I want to try. We are going kayaking again this weekend. The weather is supposed to be nice. I walked several times this week and several were 10 milers. I have found fasting is easier when I am at work. I am busy and there is no food there.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am working on my 100 writing prompts. I plan to share one writing prompt a day for the last 100 days of 2020! I am so excited for this project.

What is the most important thing about your week? I want to hear all about it!

  1. Best of luck with your writing projects. I do like to print my favourite photos, and I save them on memory cards. I have a few enlarged framed prints around the house of my daughter, some horses, and favourite National Parks. They hang in different rooms, but are printed in the same size, and have the same black wooden frame. It makes me happy to be surrounded by happy memories. As my house have a very minimalistic decor the photos stand out, and you really see them. Thank you for the coffee!

    • We have taken some of our favorite photos and made them posters as well! The memories are important. We make photo album books for the kids with memories for the year for the holidays too. It is fun to go through them and remember the stories
      Thanks for stopping by for a chat

  2. Sounds like a good week. Glad you were able to get a lot of writing in. i didn’t do as much this week as I would like, but I was on vacation, so… As to walking, I consider a 10 mile walk a hike 😉 As autumn approaches, I hope to get out for some hikes in that range (New Hampshire is a perfect place for hiking). I hope you are having a great weekend!

  3. Ha Tammy! Why am I both surprised and NOT surprised that you want to try boxing. You and my daughter. . . She misses her martial arts training where she used to regularly get beat up, but also gave as good as she got, still – – – . There seems to be no end to the surprises of being a parent. Great coffee share. I wish we could trade insights some time to this whole writing and story telling adventure.

    • I did Taekwondo in college. There is something powerful about knowing where to hit someone…with impact. I also admire how strong and light boxers can seem.
      I read you Ayem story and left comments! I loved it so.

  4. Sounds like a good busy week Tammy. It’s fantastic that you write fiction every day. I read a lot and maybe one day will start writing more than my weekly blog post 🙂 I’d like to take up boxing, too or some self-defense martial art. Unfortunately, with covid-19, I haven’t found a place where it’s offered yet.

  5. You definitely write a lot! That’s fantastic. I would really like to write more, but struggle to find the motivation to. Also, I’m a bit self-critical, in that everything I write has to somehow be “good enough”.
