On Riding, Writing and Sitting Still

By Myrna CG Mibus / November 14, 2015

Note: This post was also published on my Idyllwild blog. I’m on a writing retreat at the Anderson Center in Red Wing and took a break from my writing yesterday and this morning to get out and ride the Cannon Valley Trail. The CVT parallels the Anderson Center’s property and to get to the trail I only need…

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

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…

Y is for Yawn

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 15, 2015

I’m tired this morning so if you see me in town and catch me mid-yawn you’ll know why. I’m not bored. I’m not trying to get extra oxygen. I’m simply tired. I’d like to take a nap but today is one of those days when I’m on the run. Today is a day when I…

An x-ray of my foot

X is for X-Ray

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 14, 2015

Yeah, I know that writing about X-Rays for day “X” of an A to Z Blogging challenge is predictable because “x-ray” is the first thing people think of when they think of a word starting with X. Thing is, I really do have a reason to write about x-rays because I had two of them taken today.…

W is for Wabasha

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 12, 2015

My family went on a mini vacation this past weekend. We were invited to a wedding at the lovely Villa Bellezza in Pepin, Wisconsin so decided we’d stay overnight in nearby Lake City, Minnesota instead of driving home after the wedding. Saturday was also my daughter’s 16th Birthday so part of our decision to make a weekend of things…

V is for Vaya

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 11, 2015

Two summers ago, I purchased a Salsa Vaya so that I could expand my bicycling to include gravel riding and some touring. From what I understand, “Vaya” means “to go” in Spanish – so I decided to name my Vaya something that reflected the “to go” nature of the name. I couldn’t come up with…
