Today I reached and passed a milestone, at least it feels that way. After years of allowing my writings to gather dust, I've made a move to get out of the writing doldrums (as opposed to writer's block). I joined Writer's Digest Community and posted the poem I Feel a Clearing of the Skies on the Poetry Corner. In addition, I joined the Weekly Writing Motivation group and responded to the prompt A Secret Passage in the Library by writing a short prose piece. What fun it was! And a man named Art said, of my poem, "utterly delightful." Wasn't that a nice first step on the journey?
