When I have too much to say
The words won’t line up
And push for place on the page
I’m too tired tonight to sort them
So they lie around in jumbled groups
Like loud teenagers
Too many words is usually not a problem for a writer
I’ve been sharpening my tools of late
Writing several hours on different things a day
So I’ve called forth this plethora
An army of thought
They sit mustered and blowing steam into the air
I don’t want them here right now
But they’ve come regardless
Hordes of them
Far as the eye can see
I sit before the fire
With my commitment and resolve
The daily blog
Must be posted
I open the door a crack
Ok you there with the not too much to say
Come in here
Lie down on the page
The rest of you
Get some sleep
And don’t come bothering me
I’ll come get what I need in the morning
Keep the peace
Words lay down
And no snoring
And I finish this post
For you folk to read
It’s not brilliant
But here it is here
And my songline continues

Haha what a fun piece!
Great description and so true!
We create a storm that won’t shut up at times!
😝 and when it does we worry it won’t come back!!
Exactly, which is why I told them to just wait there’s till morning! 😂
I’m requesting you to check the below link & please write your comment. Previously I had contacted you to re-follow me after I migrated my site as my followers (including yourself) weren’t receiving the notification when I was publishing the post. Unfortunately, the issue hasn’t been resolved yet & this is my last try.
Please do mention in your comment / feedback that you did not receive any notification (if you haven’t) and I’ve personally contacted you with the link to read my post, such that WP can read & hopefully troubleshoot the issue. Your feedback will help me in taking the decision.
Thank you kindly in advance 🙏✨
You have quite the family of words living in your mind.
And they populate! 😊
I could definitely hear your mom tone speaking. Lol 😂
I slept so well my husband not so much – perhaps the words continued after I was asleep 😴
Oh the battles in the mind. 🥴And your victory in the war of words blesses us all….always. 💚
Oh thanks Karla you’re so sweet, how’s the writing coming?
You’re welcome. Well,…I’m excited about my future plans to write daily. I’m working so many hours right now. It’s absolutely crazy at the resort. I’ll spend the next few weeks hugging family and the mountains so I’m sure it will spur my creativity. I’m needing the space. To be able to follow my dream of writing more, I’m letting go of my position after Christmas. When I left education I struggled with what would “define” me. What will I be when I grow up? My wandering heart has made the decision to sell both my Subaru and RV and buy a Class C and hit the road in ‘21. This will be the “soul” of my writing. I informed my current campground/resort, let family know, and have the support of my partner, Jeff. He will fly and meet me when he can but realistically, I’ll still be “home” in MO several months a year~just not tied down workkamping so I can concentrate on growing my blog and publishing ideas. I make fishing rigs on the side for a fishing resort. But I want to just travel and write …and wander. 💚
This sounds like the bomb! Do it do it do it – way to go my friend.
Thank you! 🤗
Your support always means so much. 😘💚
Always happy to offer high fives and air hugs 🤗
This is it!! The head before bed! ❤️
It is it is 💕
