Bloom Where You Damn Well Please!

Hello Friends!
Just wanted to let you know where I’ve been. I am focusing on a book project and trying not to get distracted by other writing projects. I have to see this one through.”The Original Journal” is a project I have been working on for 20 years. I am in the process of self-publishing it. It will be the first product I offer through my small business. So, that’s where I have been (and mounting a 5 year old, teaching creative writing and photography residencies at schools as a teaching artist, and taking small business classes at my local community college.

This post I am sharing from The Original Journal blog is my 100th post there. I believe in symbolism and serendipity. Some call it providence or fate. It’s all connected. I believe in the Law of Attraction and prayers answered. I am ready to do this. It’s only taken 20 years! It’s exciting, scary, and amazing. With each big breakthrough comes a wave of insecurity, trepidation, FEAR, happiness, and doubt. But I am moving forward. I don’t want to be that person anymore who is the creative girl who us talking about publishing the journal people sign.

I AM the woman who IS publishing “The Original Journal.”

I’ll be keeping you posted as I move forward. I have some tentative dates I’m working on for a launch/publication of the book, aling with Kickstarter video launch. Deadlines make it real and scary and REAL!

Stay tuned. Thank you for your support and being a fertilizer for my dream (see post, “Bloom Where You Dam Well Please” via The Original Journal blog).

♡Journal Your Journey♡
With Love & Muse,

The Original Journal Project


Bloom where you damn well please! Grow your garden; grow your dreams. You’ll need:
* good soil (a safe place to create)
* water (support system to nourish and quench your thirst — you can be your own support system — just take the steps necessary to understand how often you need to be “watered” and/or understand the “weather” patterns of rain and moisture. Otherwise, our dreams dry up.)
* fertilizer  (surround yourself with people who give you “nutrients” to grow and keep at it. Don’t give up. One micro step multiplied by many equals a big movement (step) towards your Big Idea/Dream.)
* Seeds (an amazing death starts as a seed. It has to be planted in order to grow. But you have to prepare your garden first  — prepare the soil, gather the right fertilizers, and know your cycle of creativity, productivity, etc.

Bloom on badass — you’re…
