I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “strain.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “strain.”
The past year has been a strain. Family drama, my mom dying, finally the flu,
exhaustion, stress, being behind in our business…
HATE being behind in our business, and even more so at our age —
no more 12-16 hours possible days to get caught up!
Puts our health at a strain.
And there are things to be thankful for….
My husband and I have a great relationship and at our worst we are good with each other. It doesn’t get better than that in a marriage. Kind, considerate, understanding when the other is short, remembering that he or me is under strain too.
Grateful for the laughter the Cats provide.
Too funny, their antics, and also they know when we are stressed and want to help.
Thankful for the ability to drop into some sort of creative play once a day
most of the time. THAT also reduces strain!
For the rules, go to Linda’s blog; feel free to join the fun!
As my Patreon supporter, you will have
access to some content not on this website,
sneak previews, goodies, discounts on classes.
I teach architectural sketching,
art journaling (art+writing), creativity, watercolors.
That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
