Small Changes in Routine

Blogging outdoors in my bathrobe, sitting in my car in our driveway, where reception is better than inside. The air is room-temp, so I've left the car door open; birds are happily chirtling in the trees, nice liquid-y sounds. A horse fly madly buzzs against the inside of windshield, trying to get out.

Even small changes in routine are great for the creativity and sense of adventure: I've gotten a lot of pretty good work done this morning. Now off to the writers' group I've been meeting with for 26 years: some good things to be said for routine as well.

I like nothing better than to sit in my car on a sunny, warm day and read a good book. Of course, I don't usually do that in my driveway...LOL

Peggy, I love the way that you described your experience of blogging in your car! Just reading it made me smile and breathe in a little deeper.

26 years with the same writers group! That is quite an accomplishment. Have you ever written about how you got together with them? I would love to hear about how your group formed.

Glad to hear that the irritability has passed.

Kenju, where do you go to read in your car? BTW, I find a nice warm car a good place to nap, though I have had a stranger knock on my window to be sure I'm alive.

Deb, my writers' group is run by a leader who got us together. She's novelist Laurel Goldman. We're all in it for life. It's a pretty amazing thing to have.
