Perfect Days #SOLC Day 6


I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers March Blog Challenge. If you would like more information about this challenge click here.

Several years ago I learned about the 36 questions to become closer to someone. In the New York Times, the article was titled The 36 Questions that Lead to Love. I am always fascinated by questions. As an introvert, I learned to have a question ready when attending a social event in case the conversation lulled. I prefer to have deeper conversations as opposed to surface level ones.

As part of the challenge this year, I will be answering some of the questions and then you have the opportunity to journal about the question, ask a person you want to be closer to, or answer in the comments.

I have written about this perfect or ideal day many times. It is part of many creative programs including The Artist’s Way.

If I visualize and think about what my ideal life looks like writing is in the forefront. First, I would love to have a writer shed. It would be awesome to have a space to write that would be a little house. I love to look at tiny houses and writing sheds on Pinterest.

Honestly, any time that I can write most of the day is the epitome of the ideal life. I write anywhere and everywhere. I have a desk now but do not often use it.

There has to be notebooks to write it and my favorite pens. I love Inkjoy pens. Right now I ordered a sampler from JetPens of several different fountain pens and have been using those. I also need a computer with the internet because I write using Google Docs.

The ideal writing life is to wake up and write my morning pages and work on a piece of writing — usally a short story or essay. I would publish a piece to Medium. During this whole time I would be drinking strong black coffee.

I pull my tarot cards for the day for whatever deck is calling to me.

Then I have the option for a morning nap. I often call this storynap because the dreams are vivid and lend themselves to a story or a piece of writing.

Then I would go for a walk and listen to podcasts. There would be time for reading and reflecting.

Based on the reading or the walk I would jot some thoughts down for writing.

Then lunch.

A little more writing in the afternoon.

Some days I could go to a coffee shop. Afternoons could be used for marketing and emails that need to be sent. I could converse with some of my writing community.

The best part of this ideal writing life? I would have a bank account that never dipped below a 6 figure income!

Now that would be something!

  2. I could totally live this life! I especially love the idea of a writing shed. Actually, my dream is a writing shed with a greenhouse. I love the idea of going out there, surrounded by lush, green foliage, and writing to my heart’s content. My husband and I have looked at some small buildings, but none of them have quite captured my heart yet. The time will come. Until then, I can dream!
