One thing I have noticed is if you don’t do something every day you start to go days without doing it at all. Most people would recognize this pattern in working out. If you get in the habit of working out just a bit every day and then for some reason miss a day or two, that day or two starts to drag into a week or two. And before you know it it’s been months.

The same is true for writers. If I don’t write something, anything, down for a day or two it WILL turn into a week or more. And once out of the habit, getting back INTO the habit seems all that much more difficult.

I guess it’s like a muscle, the more you use it the more you use it. The less you use it the less you remember to use it.

Memory, muscles, intelligence, wit, humor, et al, if you don’t exercise it a little every day you start to lose it. Not that you can’t get it back once you remember to exercise it a little every day, but what a shame it would be to waste all that time when you could be exercising your body and mind every day to make it better.

Just a few random thoughts for today…


About ynnarie

Lynn Salisbury grew up in the rural town of McGrath, Minnesota. After graduating from McGregor High School in the mid 1980’s, she moved to the Twin Cities. Lynn spent her 20’s and 30’s working like the average person, never imagining the calling that awaited her. But those two decades of working, learning, growing, led to the day a friend challenged Lynn to write. Lynn met that challenge and never looked back. Now she draws from her life’s experiences and creative mind to weave stories. Stories about different worlds, different lives, different perspectives. If you ask her about her life, Lynn will tell you it’s been rather simple and sometimes boring. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that it’s been a bit more exciting than that. Lynn has done everything from designing clothes ranging from prom and wedding dresses to drag queen attire and everything in-between, became a registered, ordained Pagan minister in the state of Minnesota, to creating a group, on a social media site, of fans devoted to her favorite football team that has more members than most medium sized towns. Lynn still lives in the Twin Cities area, enjoying the changing seasons, spending time with family, working, and writing. She will admit she hasn’t found her genre niche yet, and she secretly hopes she never does, leaving the possibilities wide open for any type of story that formulates in her head, mixed with a bit of muse inspiration, to spill out into the written word. She writes what she would want to read, having taken to heart a piece of advice she once heard. And she feels blessed and grateful for the chance to share her stories with the world. As the mother of three amazing, beautiful and strong daughters, Lynn knows that even when the world seems the darkest, they are her light. And she never forgets what an honor and privilege it is to be their mother. “If you haven’t had your ‘a-ha’ moment today, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Lynn Salisbury
