Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Staring at a blank page is like staring into a snowfield. The snow, untouched by civilization and unmarked by living creatures, blinds you for a few minutes, it glistens reflecting subtle shades of pure white and rainbows at odd angles. If you stare at the snow too long, you get lost in the interplay of light and shadow.

As the day wears on, you become awestruck at the beauty of the snow's perfection. You marvel at the way an oak tree cast its ebony shadow across the pure white snow. You watch the tree's shadow change, grow and shrink, as Earth turns and the sun moves from morning to evening. If you stand out in the snow too long without moving, you risk snow bite or freezing.

If you are fortunate, a red fox will walk across your line of sight. The fox will leave his footprints written in the snowfield. As you watch the fox move, the spell holding you in one spot staring at the snow is broken. You are free to go inside out of the cold and out of danger.


I must say,
writing 500 words a day
isn't difficult,
unless I'm attempting to write
on a single subject.

On Monday, October 28, 2013, I began posting my weekly goals at "Weekly Goals. On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 I began keeping track of may accomplished goals in this journal.

"O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning;
for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds."
Bah'u'll'h The Hidden Words of Bah'u'll'h, Part I.'From the Arabic, #31, page 11

'Heinlein's Rules for Writers

         Rule One: You Must Write
         Rule Two: Finish What Your Start
         Rule Three: You Must Refrain From Rewriting, Except to Editorial Order
         Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market
         Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold'

Robert A. Heinlein

It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One. Ponder ye in your hearts the grace and the blessings of God and render thanks unto Him at eventide and at dawn. Waste not your time in idleness and sloth. Occupy yourselves with that which profiteth yourselves and others. Thus hath it been decreed in this Tablet from whose horizon the day-star of wisdom and utterance shineth resplendent.
Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Pages 21-29: gr 32

I changed the way I did entries in this book several times. Beginning on March 21, 2018 the entries will cover the topics of spiritual, inspirational, and religions. However, the genres it will be under are Women's, Inspirational, and Spiritual with a tag of Religious.

Istijlal (Majesty), 17 Qudrat (Power) 177 B.E. - Thursday, November 19, 2020

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...for the poinsettias De's brother left for us today.

Istiqlal (Independence), 18 Qudrat (Power) 177 B.E. - Friday, November 20, 2020

I began this Thankful Thursday entry yesterday. Since I did not complete my gratitude list I am continuing it today, Friday, November 20, 2020. I noticed that, for several weeks, I have not completed my nine items gratitude list. I suspect this is just another 2020 test, which will clear up in 2021, so that I can deal with different tests and difficulties issues.

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America checking account is not overdrawn today.
         *BulletV* ...for hot, black coffee on this beautiful Autumn morning.
         *BulletV* ...that there are only 34 days until Christmas, because that means there are only 33 days until my birthday.


         *BulletV* ...for the chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing that I had for my morning snack.
         *BulletV* ...that I have, so far, written 30,063 words for NaNoWriMo.

Jalal (Glory), 19 Qudrat (Power) 177 B.E. - Saturday, November 21, 2020

It's Saturday, and I'm still attempting to finish my Thankful Thursday gratitude list. I am also attempting to finish a letter in "Epistles From My Soul that I started on Wednesday. I'm sure there are other things I have to do, such as post an entry to "I Blog Poetry and Prose, and I'll (hopefully) get to those this weekend.

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...for Mema because she lays in my lap and purrs.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 434,112 GPs in my Gift Points account.
         *BulletV* ...for chocolate rice crispie treats.
