Writing for a Change

Posted October 28, 2015 by Hazellie in Writing / 0 Comments

October is almost over, and Samhain, or Halloween, is happening in just a few more days.

I taught my second tarot course in the beginning of the month, and I also had a birthday this month. I read some books, did some tarot readings, studied and journaled, bought new prayer beads and started taking meditation seriously… Basically, I did a lot this month.

But I still can’t help feeling like I’m waiting for something more. Anticipating something…

Lately I’ve been feeling like my intuitive abilities are getting stronger. Maybe it’s because I’ve been consistently using my intuition, maybe it’s because I’m meditating more than I did before, or maybe the Universe just wants to tell me something important.

In any case, for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been feeling called to write more. Journaling, blogging, writing… just putting words to paper (or screens, whatever).

I know that NaNoWriMo is starting in November, and I love the whole energy of writers all over the world getting ready for it, but I don’t think I’m supposed to write a novel. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to write about actually, but I’m definitely supposed to write.

I’ve also found NaBloPoMo, which is National Blog Posting Month and something I’m very interested in, but I feel like not everything I’m supposed to write about might be for public consumption. There might be some shadow work and personal journaling to be done, in fact, I’m pretty sure there will be.

I could just go indie for now, see where it takes me. I don’t necessarily mind posting private stuff about my shadow work, but I don’t want to make it a commitment that I can’t back out of.

Is anyone else doing either of these two writing/blogging challenges? It would help to have a writing buddy or two.

There are a few things I have in mind that I want to write or journal about; tarot for sure, shadow work, there’s a creative journal prompt book that I’m looking at too…

I could definitely commit to writing a thousand words or more a day (NaNoWriMo is about 1,666 words a day), but I’m not sure if this would include the tarot readings I’d be doing for clients, the blog posts that I’ve already planned, and the tarot course I’m rewriting.

I still have a few more days to figure it out.

Until then, Happy Samhain!

I’m a little bummed because we don’t really do Halloween or Samhain here in Malaysia, so what would normally be a fun time for me as a tarot reader is going to be really quiet instead. Still, I can celebrate vicariously through the internet, so make sure you have lots of fun for me!
