Writing Days

So here it comes, my Blog Post number two. Please excuse any glitches and hiccups about to happen, driving this is still a work in progress for me, definitely.

These are the days I like best. Writing days, locked away in my study or hiding on the small balcony which runs off our bedroom (sounds like a palace – it’s not) hiding from the world so I can write uninterrupted. Lately this seems to be happening less and less, like us all, life gets in the way.

Then there are those precious times when words just jump up and say ‘I want be be heard, don’t forget me, write me down RIGHT NOW’ and I grab the serviette or crumpled piece of paper from the bottom of my handbag, find some sort of writing instrument and begin to write – that’s what happened this morning.

So now I am back from my daily walk, the muse has taken over, possessed me, so that I am writing at the kitchen table, toast and coffee in hand scribbling these odd thought-trailings in shorthand. All I need to do now is make sure I can read my shorthand – an almost dying art I must blog about, some time.

I plan to blog each Wednesday, for no other reason than it seems like a good day.

  2. Chris Bell Who could fail to be inspired by such an outlook? You amaze me recalling your shorthand and still utilising it, Corinne. I'm always envious at talks looking over your shoulder when you take notes. :) May the muse stay with you. Chris

    • corinne Hmm, except when I sit looking at an outline for 5 minutes trying to decipher it. Tx. Chris.

  4. Corinne King - Kauai island - Hawaii Love it that you're blogging. I, too, am a writer. Not published. Too busy doing my day job. Hope to get published one day...several children's books set in Hawaii and one murder mystery set in Wyoming.

  5. Sally Odgers How funny you should talk about scribbling down ideas. My handwriting is WOEful, but I found an odd bit of paper the other day with a few legible words on it. It's now the title of a manuscript.

  8. Kaye Baillie Hi Corinne, nice post. I also love the way words seem to invade headspace. If someone asked me how I thought up this or that, I really couldn't say. Words just seem to embed themselves and taken themselves where they wish to go. If only I could make successful use of these intrusive but welcome little things. I need to whip many thoughts into better shape.
