Cathy Thwing

This is something I needed to hear! One of my students asked recently, "How can I fit writing into my life?" I was going to say, "Wait until you retire..." (not a good answer!), but this is an answer I can share!

A new one I've been playing with (not mine but sorry can't remember the source) is a how I do want to feel list. Prioritize how I want to feel for the day instead of what I 'need' to do. It helps when I'm pushing myself too hard.
