In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done!.”

Okay, freewriting. I’ve always loved the concept, but I rarely do it. Yet I know some of my best poetry has come out of freewriting.

What I’ve been thinking about lately:

  • My dad and how he’s shaped my life
  • My identity
  • Stress and happiness
  • Weight. Food. Bleh.
  • Work/life balance
  • My wonderful kid
  • Relationships. Bleh.
  • How do I meet someone? Will I ever meet someone who fits with me?
  • Cancer
  • Blogging
  • Money. Bleh.
  • My job. Volunteering.
  • Progressing on the cello
  • Winter. Bleh.

I want to blog about all of these things. I will, in time. BUT some of these topics are more personal than others, and while I do want to write about them, I’m a little shy about putting myself out there.

This isn’t a very insightful post, is it? I’m not feeling very creative these days. Work stresses and tires me out, then I get home and want to do nothing. I know it’s just temporary. This too shall pass. So, focus on making it through today, making the best of today, and tomorrow do the same.


  1. The great news is that you write concisely and clearly. It’s easy to follow your thoughts as I read your post. It’s also great to see that you have so many topics to choose from when the passion strikes. Good luck!
