on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Rough Day/Vote

Hello! Today has been a hectic day at our household!
We got up ontime this morning, but somehow we didn’t get ontime with school.
We didn’t finish all our assignments ontime for lunch, so after quiet time we had to finish up on that and now we’re behind on chores. Plus, my three-year-old sister is bothering my brother and me! < That’s almost what it’s like! On top of that, this morning I had a breakdown because I felt like I didn’t have any friends, and I was lonely. I was up late, too. So, it’s been a pretty long day. Last night (while I was up late), I had the idea of having a poll with my readers to see what things they like, colors, animals, etc., and this month it’s seasons; spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Post a comment and tell me what you think! Later, Kylie P.S – You have until midnight on October 15th to vote! Also, bloggers cannot vote more than once each.

Fun poll – I like easy ones
