Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Lessons Learned



So, I would like to pass on a tidbit of information I've learned over the past couple of weeks: Don't write a disciplinary action against an employee while one is writing an essay.  HR will not appreciate the imagery, nor will any emotional tirades be tolerated.  This I have learned from experience, and have decided I shall from herewith, refrain from disciplinary actions and concentrate on essays and eventual longer pieces of fiction.

My current trial seems to winding down and I have learned quite a bit about myself, the strength of my support system, and that the light at the end of the tunnel is appreciated more due to the journey through the darkness.

Writing has always been an outlet for me, and I've often turned to a blank page to spill my thoughts and dreams and occasionally make sense of the words that end up there.  The past couple of weeks haven't been conducive to even the venting I could have done.  It just seemed like a light was shut off inside of me, both emotionally and creatively.  Oh but what fodder I have for future villains and sub characters of a work in the future.  Yep, make me mad, and I'll write you into my novel.  A novel, yet to exist, but just you wait; you'll be immortalized forever in the written word.

I've spent too much time and energy on this, so today I wash my hands of it all.  If I get the chance to write again, I'll make sure I do so without any disciplinary actions on my desk.  HR will thank me!

It might not be appreciated in HR disciplinary forms but I can vouch personally for police reports! ;)

I hope everything worked out ok with work... in the meantime, the sewing time was very productive. I had a great weekend and think that we should do it again.

I would think they would appreciate the creativity in the disciplinary report. At least it would be entertaining.

I think January brings about a funk for a lot of us, emotionally, spiritually and physically. It's the long dark days for me...

Funny! Hope your week gets better. :O)

The dark cloud that this new year has started under is freaking me out. A few days ago I seriously had the feeling, "Panic and run." I didn't but man, did it sound good.

I like your thoughts here, "...Make me mad, and I'll write you into my novel."

The best books just might be written that way.

xoxoxo

Well, at least you know somebody does read what you devote your time to doing at work:)

I think we are overdue for a couples retreat. Sounds like there are many employment stories to vent about! Hang in there.

I'm sure it was a flawless report. I'm glad writing provides that outlet for you. :)
