welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

the battle to write

The warrior and the artist live by the same code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day.
-Steven Pressfield

Great quote! I am trying to get better about adding words EVERY DAY. I have a hard time doing that during the school year since I am a teacher with two small kids (where does the time gooooooo?) but now that it is summer I am trying hard to stick to it!!! My daughter is currently in a production of Mulan so we are all about battles... this quote is very timely for me! Thanks for sharing :)

I hadn't thought of it that way.

Okay, I suppose I'm a little more motivated now. "The pen is mightier than the sword," but the ultimate weapon must be the keyboard.

Dangerous- glad it was timely.

Christine - can you see us marching into battle with keyboards?

To battle! Lop off some heads, er, adjectives.
