specialy early in the morning when I’m trying to keep my eyes open…

This post says it all. It is exactly where I am. Too many serious life events interfering with my twinkle. Hope to be able to push through it.

So very, very true! Looking for the twinkle!!

It’s like saying it’s impossible to write if there is no writing spirit in your heart and mind so twinkle, twinkle heart and mind.

LOVE this one, Tara!

That’s the truth! Gotta find mine!

Love this quote. So true!

AND it’s impossible to feel the twinkle if you don’t experience moments without. Have to have the good and the bad. I like this as food for thought.
Not true! All you need is a strobe light! 😉

Somehow, maybe because it’s my first one, PiBoIdMo makes me feel twinkly. Thanks, Tara. It must be all the inspiration twinkling through.

Why do I suddenly want to eat a twinkie?
November 24, 2013 at 3:57 pm
the twinkle reflects the spark!
November 24, 2013 at 5:34 pm
And sometimes difficult to make your characters twinkle while we ourselves are twinkle-less.

Puttin’ on the twinkle
November 24, 2013 at 7:27 pm
Yes, and how about “It’s impossible to make your manuscript sparkle, if you aren’t feeling sparkly yourself.’
November 24, 2013 at 7:59 pm
Ahhhhh those lucky little stars.
November 24, 2013 at 8:20 pm
Today I feel very twinkly!
November 24, 2013 at 8:44 pm
A simple but honest truism.

I am feeling twinkly, ever so twinkly – I really and truly am!

Time to get my twinkly on!

Wisdom is oft expressed very simply – well-put, Roald!

This is so perfect! Twinkle on! 🙂

Some days, I have to fake being twinkly. Like smiling and saying I Love You, it becomes real and I mean it.

This is very true…and it made me smile.

Just like you can’t tell people to be grateful for what they have if you are not grateful yourself (I am a yoga teacher)

City Sights for Kids
This resonates on so many levels and is further encouragement to pursue my passions. Life’s too short and I want to feel *TWINKLY* all the time!
