day 4 // mood ✨

These days, the mood of my writing life feels magical & whimsical.
Now, my writing life for sure isn’t an everyday thing because writer with a day job here, but something in me has shifted.

I started letting go of all I want to do & all that I’m not doing.
I started letting go of trying to pull my life in the direction of things that I’m not.

I started listening to the small whispers of my soul that murmur “stories are magic.”

A sentence here.
A character name there.
An image of a map doodled (badly) on the page.
A loose plot arc scribbled out.

I’m embracing those.
The small moments of magic when my soul whispers a story to my mind & my heart flutters at the thought.
And suddenly, I’m off in a whimsical place jotting down notes that don’t make sense, but will someday.

I really, really like this mood.
