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…

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 31, 2016

I am settling in to write for the next few days at the wonderful Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota. I’ve unpacked my computer, books, journal, and pens and have made myself a cup of tea. I am ready to write! I’m on a self-guided writing retreat with my friends Joy and Chris. We’ve now done several…

Project Complete!

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 5, 2016

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…

30 Days of Writing

By Myrna CG Mibus / February 29, 2016

I spent the last several days in northwest Wisconsin at a Motherhood and Words writing retreat led by the fabulous Kate Hopper. 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…

Essay Submitted!

By Myrna CG Mibus / November 13, 2015

I just sent off an email to an editor of an online literary publication asking her to consider publishing an an essay I wrote about my Dad. I’m both excited and nervous to have sent it out to someone. Mostly nervous, I think. I’m not so much nervous about whether the essay gets accepted or not…

I Have Time to Write!

By Myrna CG Mibus / October 31, 2015

I’ve been lamenting that I don’t have time to write for, well, probably years now. In recent months I’ve made progress in discovering some of my roadblocks to finding writing time (like lacking a morning routine). I’ve been blocking out time on my calendar to write and have had some success with that but still…

Morning Routine and Writing Time – a work in progress

By Myrna CG Mibus / October 13, 2015

Since I wrote about writing time in my last blog post, I have realized that one of my roadblocks to finding writing time is that I struggle to get up in the morning. I have found I can find time to write if I simply get out of bed and stay out of bed. What often happens,…

I have a Writing Space, now what about Writing Time?

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 25, 2015

I’ve gone through a lot of work to create a great writing space in my home office in the past year. Just this morning, I tackled one last cluttered spot (okay, I could tackle the closet but for now I’m just keeping the door closed) and have a clutter-free space in which to write. It…

Z is for Zotz

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 22, 2015

Monday morning I set out on a quick road trip to Bemidji, Minnesota to deliver my daughter, Rose, and her friend, Chloe, to one of Concordia College’s language camps, Sup sogŭi Hosu. Sup sogŭi Hosu is the Korean Language Village that Rose attended for two weeks last summer. She had an absolute blast so is going…
