I must confess that I do some of my best work between 3:00am and 6:00am. Honestly, those quiet hours when I’m laying awake in bed often provide inspiration and ideas for projects I’m working on at work and at home. Mind you, those sleepless hours can often provide much frustration as I’ve written about previously!
Better still is the time I spend in the shower in the morning. Now, I don’t want you to get a visual here (heaven forbid!) but the truth is that my mind works best first thing in the morning, and my first activity of the day is a shower. There is just something about that hot water and the movements I make by rote that puts me into right-brain mode.
This morning my mind is on some things going on at work and so the original inspiration I had hoped to come up with for this morning’s post didn’t happen. So, my good blogging friend Becky Lane who will be a panelist on the Finding Our Voices Online panel at February’s Stories From the Heart V conference has allowed me to borrow one of her ideas.
We are doing some pre-work and trying to learn who is reading our blogs and why they keep reading. So would you please leave a comment and let me know who you are (names aren’t necessary, you can leave an anomymous comment if you would like). Let me know your gender, age bracket, and any other demographic information you would feel comfortable including. Then, and here’s the good stuff, let me know why you keep coming back to My Own Velvet Room.
To thank everyone who leaves a comment, on December 15 I will do a drawing for your choice of a book that has been reviewed recently on the Story Circle Book Review site! Why December 15? Because I may have more blog-related questions over the next week or so and I want to include everyone who answers all of my inquiring-minds-want-to-know questions.
