Unsticking Myself

I haven't written in more than a month, other than the post about my daughter Ana winning a writing contest.  I don't consider a post writing about someone else's writing really substantive enough to call writing. (If you follow that.) (And if you DO follow that, could you explain it to ME?)

Anyway, for me, going that long without writing is unheard of --certainly on this blog, but I don't just mean that I haven't written on this blog in a month. I mean I haven't written ANYTHING in over a month.

Normally, I would be panicking. I'd assume depression and call my doctor to talk about medical intervention. But I'm not depressed.

And I'm not panicking. I'm actually in a very calm, centered (well, for me) place right now.

I'm just...listening.

The thing is, though, that I have things I want to do and I can't seem to...I can't seem to MOVE, dang it.  Things are percolating, but nothing seems to be HAPPENING. And listening will only take you so far toward reaching for your dreams.

Luckily, I'm friends on Facebook with this amazing writer named Christy Farr, who is a life coach and a generally very cool, positive person.  And she's offering an on-line/over-the-phone class called "Sick of Being Stuck," which is ostensibly for people with clutter issues, although those clutter issues don't necessarily have to be physical clutter issues. I don't have much physical clutter (some, but not a lot,) but I recognize that what's keeping me from going straight after my dreams is a certain amount of EMOTIONAL clutter.  I'm hoping to unstick myself through her class.

The reason I'm mentioning it is that she's offering it for only $50 if you sign up by tomorrow morning.  So, if you were thinking you needed some help getting going on decluttering or just in general, I invite you to join me!  I think it's going to be amazing and life changing. (If you don't have physical clutter issues and you sign up for the class, put "uncluttered" in the special instructions box.)

Here's to change!

This is a gestational moment. Listening is good. Your muse is gathering and processing what you will soon enough give birth to...

Sometimes our most creative moments don't end up recorded.

As I was walking home last night, I was wishing for a "do-over" button. I'm failing right now, at just about everything it feels like. Getting unstuck sounds like a good idea but I have no illusion about having time for this. I will be very interested to hear more from you about it though.
I find it utterly amazing that women continue to register for a class for which I haven't written a description, created a registration page for, or even crafted a solid plan about what we will do together.

I can tell you these things:
1. Last month was absolutely amazing.
2. Many of them are writers and artists who feel stuck.
3. Several just want to figure out who they are and what they want.
4. They are all so brave.

While the traditional SOBS classes (the ones which focus on clearing clutter) are now closed for April, you can register for this one until the first group call Monday evening (8pm Central). It's called the Sick of Being Stuck *Uncluttered* class... and frankly, it's wicked awesome.

THANK YOU for being a part of this, and for spreading the word.

I'm looking forward to hearing about how this process works.
