Healthy Writer Wednesday: Changes are a Comin’


pure luck I caught this butterfly on the flower - not a monarch but still beautiful

This weekend I spotted the beginnings of the annual migration of monarch butterflies through Oklahoma on their trek from Canada to Mexico. The orange beauties look like they’re casually floating by but they’ve been on a mission since their caterpillar days. The changes they go through to get to their awesome butterfly-ness are so extreme they have their own biological term: metamorphosis. They are a wonder of Creation.

As anyone who regularly reads this blog knows, I have an on-going feud with my alter ego Perfectionist Me. Changes seem to upset Perfectionist Me to no end. She likes everything to stay the same so she can check it off “the List”. She likes to call my attention to the fact blogging experts say you should stick with the same subjects so your readers will know what to expect from you. She likes to follow the rules. She’s tried to talk me out of exploring new themes on the blog, but I’m working on embracing my writing journey and journeys includes changes. She doesn’t win the vote this time.

Nothing as dramatic as metamorphosis happening, but beginning in October there will be a few changes coming to kristin nador writes anywhere. We’ll be shaking up Wednesdays for a while with some subjects I hope we can discuss together. Each month will look like this:

  • 1st week – Wednesday Wellness

We’ll continue our focus on being our best selves body, mind and spirit

  •  2nd week – Wednesday Women

 A theme I’ve discovered in my short stories and novels is that I gravitate to strong women overcoming adversity so I’d like to devote a Wednesday to talking about women who have done amazing things. The post may be about women from history, women from literature or women who have impacted our lives personally. This is your chance to participate. If you have an idea for Wednesday Women or would like to do a guest post, send me an email at kristin dot nador at live dot com and let’s talk about it!

  • 3rd week – Wednesday Writing Prompt

A fun way to get the creative juices flowing!

  • 4th week – Wednesday Weird and Wacky

Something that grabs my attention from the week’s news, pop culture or strange floating bits in cyberspace.

Monday and Friday schedules will remain the same so click on that little RSS or email subscription button at the upper right of this page so you can stay up to date and let’s encourage one another on the journey!

Question: Do you ever get stuck in a rut in some area of your life because you are afraid to change the ‘schedule’? What did you do to get out of it?
