Potential

By Myrna CG Mibus / January 8, 2021

After 20 years living in the same house, my husband and I have downsized and moved into a new home. We’ve been here just over a month now and are still getting settled in. Here is a glimpse of my current view in my new office. Bookshelves up but still empty. Computer screen weirdly blank…

Writing Journals organized

Journals

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 8, 2020

In getting ready for our move to a smaller house, last night I packed away my old journals into plastic bins. I didn’t pause to look at the journals much while I was packing them away because that would have resulted in not getting the task done, but at quick glance I noticed a few…

Getting Ready to Write

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 16, 2017

I’m writing on my deck this afternoon, working on a story that’s due in a week and a half. Correction. I’m sitting on my deck this afternoon and am getting ready to write the story that is due in a week and a half but am writing a blog entry instead. A few years ago,…

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…

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…

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,…

Creating a Writing Space

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 13, 2015

I think it’s great fun to see how other writers create their own writing spaces. Earlier today, I read a blog written by my friend, Joy Riggs, in which she shares how she created a new writing space for herself out of her daughter’s former bedroom. Joy goes beyond creating a physical writing space, though, she recognizes that…
