2017 Something Red Art Walk

I do have two paintings on the Something Red Art Walk in Downtown Salem: RedHead @ Elsinore Gallery  & Framing and Tent at World Beat @ CCTV through the end of December  – both available for sale. (Though I heard a rumor that CCTV is closed this week for the holidays.) I will be picking them up when December ends.

Day 24 Guess I should title this post ….

Okay – Now that midnight has past and my fridge is full of tastry turkey (Thanks, Son!), I’ll now concede it’s Christmas in the house! Something about a full meal with the family and then board games around the table definately get me into the mood! As you could probably tell from last night’s tangling …

Day 23 Thankful for Writing Challenges

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the United States and Americans abroad! Expecially to our  brave our, defense warriors stationed away from family.

I’m not one these days for expressing my gratitude aloud these days, other than thanking  someone for a favor they have done.  The reason being= it seems a sure-fire way to lose what I appreciate having. Continue reading “Day 23 Thankful for Writing Challenges”

Day 21 – 3 weeks of NovPAD & NaNoWriMo

Spent this morning looking for my glasses; never did find them. I suspect the brownies took them & hid them. Today is also a day when physical law refuse to work for me. Those two challenges leave today being a “catch me if you can” day.

I need to spend today in my role as CC Willow, working on my online art offerings & setting up a holiday sale. So, on for today …

Day 20 of 30-Day Writing Challenges

Tech issues, so this post will be composed in stages today.

One of those days when I can’t quite get my emotions under control – so all my devices are SLIDing and in the weirdest ways (im) possible. Let’s go from phone to ‘puter now … Continue reading “Day 20 of 30-Day Writing Challenges”

Day 19 Sunday, Fun day for NovPAD and NaNoWriMo

And, yes, there will be a poem shared!

So yesterday I let procrastination limit how much I could write y’day. When I did get to Everybody Likes Pie, I was able to lose myself completely in it … for about 30 mins at a time. But then my inner domestic kept reminding me of chores I needed to do, which led to more chores needing to be done. Writers’ life, sheesh. Continue reading “Day 19 Sunday, Fun day for NovPAD and NaNoWriMo”

Day 18 of NovPAD and NaNoWriMo

I thought I already posted this… Well, here it goes.

I have set today aside for poeming & noveling. So now I have the dishes done , two loads of laundry folded and one washing, floors swept, and a lil’ Thanksgiving prep handled.

Day 17 of November’s Challenges & poem

September 17, or – as my people think of it – four months until St. Patrick’s Day! I’m wearing the green today!

Been busy doing a lot of novelling last night & today on Everybody Likes Pie. Continue reading “Day 17 of November’s Challenges & poem”

Day 15 – Halfway done with November … and a poem

Halfway there! Of course, I refer to – not word count – but time. And if you find yourself not even halfway through the poems , not even at the 25K word count  at the end of today, that’s okay… We still have another 15 days; plenty of time still to write! Continue reading “Day 15 – Halfway done with November … and a poem”

Day 14 – 2 weeks of November Challenges

Still trying to catch up from last week’s detour – but today makes the Two Week Mark for my four November challeges: Writer’s NovPAD, Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day, National Novel Writing Month, and my personal Zentangle-A-Day. I think any one participating in a November challenge should get real-time points for just sticking with it! Tomorrow makes our half-way point … Continue reading “Day 14 – 2 weeks of November Challenges”

Day 12 – Almost Week 2 and the struggle is real …

I really admire how Robert Lee Brewer creates a poem to share with each of his PAD prompts.

I want to do that – really, really want to do that on my Poem-A-Day challenges.  I also want to have my post Continue reading “Day 12 – Almost Week 2 and the struggle is real …”

Day 8 NovPAD 1 week down

So the first week of the challengees is now officially in the bag. How you holding up?

As for me, the housework is slipping as the writing steps up. My projects are revving up; the poeming, the novel-writing, the art … and the demanding weather-proofing that November’s weather demands.  Continue reading “Day 8 NovPAD 1 week down”

Day 7 NovPAD Poeming today with TL Cooper

I sat today in a south Salem Starbucks with one of my favorite poets, and people, TL Cooper for a poeming session …

Well, that was our intention-  poeming and blogging. Continue reading “Day 7 NovPAD Poeming today with TL Cooper”

Day 5 NovPAD & NaNoWriMo Party Day …

So Nov 5th … or Day 5 as I call it. 🙂

I’m starting to get in the groove of writing – and as I’ve done in the past – the more I producive I am at writing, the more productive I am at the non-writing chores.   Of course, some is the natural procrastination we writers have:  Choice A: Wash out the garbage bins that now has it’s own culture thriving in their depths or Choice B Write your character out of a spot of trouble …  Choice A it is! Continue reading “Day 5 NovPAD & NaNoWriMo Party Day …”

Day 2 NovPAD 2017

Today will be short – as I’m between apppointments right now.

NovPAD

Brewer has suggested writing a “disguise poem” today.

Mia Botha’s prompt is “wind“.

NaNoWriMo

NaNo’s suggestion for your novelling today is “write a world where electricity and light are living creatiures and some people can communicate with them“.

Zentangle

20171030b Zentangle croppedI am challenging myself to create one zentangle a day during November. I’ve been so caught up, as CC Willow, in marketing my art that I really have not had a chance to play &  create more.

Now scooting myself to group yoga …

Day 2 of 2017 NAPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo

So Day two and poets across the globe are picking up speed. Typically I start out strong in early April and then start missing posting as I deal with off-line life. Continue reading “Day 2 of 2017 NAPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo”
