Made it up at 4:30 again this morning. Fresh cup of coffee and downloaded a journal app to my laptop. I had been using Day One on my iPad, and now that I have a laptop decided to download it to my new device. It’s refreshing to be able to wake up in the morning and write in my journal. Feels good to release the thoughts from yesterday, and put a little perspective on the day ahead. If you don’t have a journal you use, then I would recommend trying one. The one I use is $9.99 but there are less expensive apps, and some free ones also. Heck, you don’t even need to have a specific app, you can always use a basic word processor, or note taking platform if you wish. I just prefer Day One and the variety of features it offers. But enough about journaling, my next task, in addition to keeping up with my blog, is to start writing again. This in part explains my meaningless ramble here on my blog. I’m knocking the rust off. Getting used to the feel of the keyboards under my fingers again, and watching as the words come to life on the screen.
First writing task is to get back to poetry. I have a sonnet I started, but never finished. It will be my first mission. From there, I’m not sure where I will go. I have been looking at some writing software, mainly Scrivener, as a resource to assist in writing my first book. If you have any recommendations on other resources for writers please let me know. I’m open to all suggestions.
