Getting the Vision

I figured out what is wrong with me the other day... Yes, I eat too many sweets and like to sleep too much and maybe I'm a few nuts short of a fruit cake (or maybe I am a fruitcake. Pft. I'd rather be a piece of chocolate cake. Nom Nom).
No, no, those aren't the things I figured out were wrong with me. This is:
I haven't had writing vision for some months now (I plea the fifth on just how many months that may be). What I mean to say is I've been lacking purpose and an end goal to my words. This is why I haven't been able to sit down at my laptop and crank out chapters upon chapters as I have been able to do in the past.
By golly, I have seen the light and my vision is clear. Hal-le-lu-jah!
Suffice it to say I'm really back because I have some goals churning to be completed. I'm working on how to get there, but the most important thing is that I'm writing and plan to be doing that consistantly.
So, my two cents worth of advice to my writing buddies is:
You've got to have vision or goals for your writing. This method will undoubtedly get you somewhere if it be checking the boxes of your to-writing-do-list or just whatever it is you want to gain from this journey.
Vision rocks and so do you! Hugs.

How's your vision lately?
Writing Jewels


  1. Glad your vision is back! Did that recent conference help inspire it?

  2. Glad you're getting back into consistent writing. Those end goals and deadlines do keep us going.

  3. Write away each day best way to be at my sea, glad yours is back and you are ready to attack.

    1. Oh, Pat Hatt your rhyming keeps me on my toes. :)

  4. If you read "The Secret" it's full of experts who claim to be "Visionaries." I often wondered what it took to get that title. Michael Offutt, Visionary sounds so much better than Esquire.

    1. Visionary in any title sounds great. The only reason why I'd go for a doctorate is so people would call me Doctor King. Not a good enough reason to be a slave to text books again. haha

  5. yay! I love writing visions! I put some stuff on hold but I'm back now!

  6. Julia King: Visionary! Has a delightful ring to it.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
