Many of you know I took a spill yesterday. I was riding my bike down hwy 74 and turning on Mesa View and I didn’t notice the water on the road. Before I knew it I was flat on my back with my bike all twisted and a scraped up leg and elbow. Thank goodness I was wearing the bike helmet as my head slammed the back of the pavement pretty hard. I went back home and doctored up the road rash and rested the rest of the day. I have been on a rigorous schedule with my training for the half marathon so I was not at all excited that my spill caused me to cut my bike ride short. Today I woke up feeling sore (probably pulled the muscles in my shoulder), but excited because since I was forced to take a day off from training I would be forced to work on some future workshops. Planning and writing curriculum is one of my favorite things to do. Since I have just moved I found some notes that I had started last year about the zen in writing. I quickly fell into place with where I had left off and 3 hours later…ta da! My workshop is ready! I will be discussing 6 points in memoir writing that will really bring you to your zen in writing. Sometimes it takes a little road rash to make me settle in and write!
Today in your writing, where is the zen in your life?
