Lists Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em

Hello again!

I’m all about lists.  I have lists for everything, for work, writing and everyday tasks and then I have lists for lists. Then I have lists within my lists.  Yes, I know it’s ridiculous, but it does actually help me.  I stay organized and I stay on track with things I need to do.

So, my question is do you make lists and do you use them?  Are they helpful for you?

I mean, there are nights when I can’t go to bed until I actually put things down on paper.  I have to get my lists out of my head and onto paper that way I stop thinking about it and can shut my mind down, haha.  For me, lists are not only useful they are therapeutic.

I’m just curious if there are others out there who feel the same way I do.  Let me know what you think.  I’m off to make swag, write and get some work done.  Have a wonderful day <3

Love, Ivy

Day Two – Late Night Thoughts

Hello again,

I’m back.  Two days in a row. I said I wanted to reach out to you more and I do. Plus, I used to blog all the time and I do miss it.  I enjoy writing in general.  Sometimes it’s a way for me to just lose myself from a day.  Other times it’s a way to release the crazy thoughts from my head and other days it’s just because.  I’ve always loved writing even before I pushed publish on my first book. My journals and diaries were my best friends.  I don’t know about you, but my childhood diaries were where I could be honest about how I felt about everything.  It was the one place I knew I could never be judged, because I was the only person who would ever read it.

I realize it isn’t the same now. Every time I realize a book, I’ll be judged on the contents, but as long as I’m happy with what I’m sharing then that is all that matters in the end.

That’s all for now.  Time for research, writing and then sleep.  Until later.

Love, Ivy
