Sort of Turning My Filofax into a Travelers Notebook

I’ve always admired and loved the way travelers notebooks look. I love the option of having separate notebooks for everything just thrills me!

But, I don’t like the idea of spending more money, especially since I know I want to stick with the A5 size. That’s a bit more expensive of a jump for things.

Instead, I decided to put my Filofax A5 to use. I mean, I already had it. ?

Long Time No Post

I’m bad about this blogging thing.

Actually, I’ve just been really exhausted. Working 50 hours this week alone, and I worked 45 hours last week! And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any easier on me anytime soon (or anyone of us).

So, I’m posting, FINALLY, again, with a warning that I won’t be steady until August. Then I’ll be working on prepping for #NaNoWriMo and I’m stupid excited for that!

Do I have an idea for it? Nope, not a clue.

But I’m ready to begin!

Sounds Like Life to Me

Writing is getting harder. Sometimes, I wonder why I put myself through this. I know I like to write. I have these characters in my head just begging to come out. But I cannot find a way to let them out in a way that really makes me feel like I am doing them any justice.

It is hard to explain to someone who is not a writer. It is like being a painter, seeing the perfect picture in your mind, but unable to bring it to life. It is like seeing the perfect house or home in your head and not being able to build it or find it.

That, to me, is what this life as a writer is like. I loved this story that I had started, but now, I do not know what I am doing with it. I do not know what I am doing with anything. I feel lost, floating, adrift in a sea of words. Then they hit me like a wave, scattering around and refusing to settle back.

See, I can write pretty metaphors. But they do not always make sense. Even if they do, it never really has any true application. They are not ones that you would use in real life! I mean who would use “lost in a sea of words”?

Well, besides a writer, I guess.
