Wishcasting: Immerse

Wishcasting badgeIt's Wishcasting Wednesday so the gorgeous soul Jamie Ridler is inviting us to cast our wishes into the universe. This week Jamie asks, "What do you wish to immerse yourself in?"

I wish to immerse myself in two things: writing and life.

My writing has slowed significantly since my baby was born 7 months ago. Now I am working to bring writing back in to my life. What's more, I'm trying fiction again. I even found a short story contest that intrigued me and despite it's due date being Sunday (as in this coming Sunday), I decided to write anyway. I wrote a rough draft Monday that I admit I'm not as happy with as I had hoped. The cool thing is I'm happy anyway because I did it. I wrote a story beginning to end. That is huge for me since I tend to write snips and scenes without ever creating a full story.

As for my second wish, I wish to immerse myself in life, to find grace in the every day, and to connect with my local community. I wish to immerse myself in this life as opposed to merely observing it. I can envision so many benefits to doing so... better health, more happiness, more support, and likely better writing because I'll have more experiences to draw on.

Interesting. Writing all this now feels freeing.

What do you wish to immerse yourself in?
