Journaling again

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 15, 2017

I recently purchased a soft cover Leuchtturn1917 journal in a lovely blue color. It has numbered pages that are dotted instead of lined (lined and unlined are available but I chose the dotted for the fun of it), lovely thick paper and some nice extras like two ribbon bookmarks, an index page and an elastic band…

Making Space

By Myrna CG Mibus / February 7, 2017

As most of you know, 2016 was a tough year for me with my Dad passing away and other things. I needed to concentrate on my family so I put my writing on a back burner. I’m okay with my decision to not write much last year. That said, things have settled down enough now…

Write on through.

By Myrna CG Mibus / October 9, 2016

I just got back from a writing retreat weekend led by the fabulous Kate Hopper of Motherhood and Words. It was a weekend away that I really needed – one filled with rest, reading, writing and wonderful women friends. I’m so grateful I was able to attend. It was meant to be, I think. Kate’s…

Fountain Pen Find

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 6, 2016

When it comes to writing, I prefer to use fountain pens. I got hooked on using them about 20 years ago when I was attending University of St. Thomas. One of my English professors talked about how important it was to him to use a certain kind of writing instrument in his writing practice and…

A poem a day in April

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 28, 2016

A friend of mine, poet and writer Leslie Schultz, has been posting a new poem to her Winona Media blog every day this month. I’ve been reading many of the poems but didn’t know exactly why Leslie was writing a poem each day. I simply figured she came up with a clever 30 days of…

On Friday I had the fun of seeing a project I started working on last fall come to completion. My friend, Jean, had just picked up a freshly printed stack of booklets about one of her mother’s priceless story quilts – The Purple Sandwich Quilt – and invited me over to see them and celebrate.  I’m honored that Jean…

This is the third time I’ve attended one of Kate’s retreats and this retreat, like the others, was full of writing exercises, good food, some tears and lots of laughter. At the other retreats I…
