Coloring in the Gray Area...

I wrote 215 posts in 2012. 

I can't remember all that I wrote last year but some of my favorites of the moment are the ones I wrote from the road in December. I had no idea that I was going to have time to write. What I realized is that my mind was free from my worry space. Being at home, even in my own space, runs interference with my creativity. 

I looked at the month by month of my postings last year. The month I wrote the least, was in June, we were all here. I wrote the most posts in September. Christopher was back in school and Papa Bear had something to do.

The first full week of our routine begins tomorrow and I know I need to change something about mine. 

Here's the thing...  I want to dream in color.  

I want to grasp of at least one of my gray ideas and color it in.

This is my first 5-minute stream of consciousness of the year . This is a great exercise and I hope to have 52 of them by 2014. That's my small doable writing goal for the new year. 

Want to try it? Here are the rules…

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
  • Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post (in the sidebar). .
  • Link up your post below.
  • Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.
