If you do use the fragment in your own writing I’d love to read the results.

Guest Post : Kat McNally’s April Moon Answers

Recently I had the absolute privilege of working with Kat McNally on the April Moon creative challenge and it is with great joy that I get to share with you Kat’s own answers to our series of prompts:

Freefall by Kat McNally

Day 1: That’s when I knew that this chapter of my life had ended. And now I was free to… get another tattoo. Because that’s what grown-ups do, right? I mean, they don’t care what their parents think, right?*

 

Day 2: Knowing what I know now, I would tell my ten-years-ago self: this won’t last forever. Some things will be a lot harder than you anticipated. But others will be considerably easier. You will actually live your dream, although it won’t be exactly as you anticipated. in the meantime, stay as open as you can to moments of intense joy.

 

Day 3: Giving birth doesn’t have to be literal. So far, in my life, I have birthed… a thesis. A lot of initiatives in my old day job that I can barely remember. A novel. A home.

 

Day 4: The last time I felt completely relaxed was… over the weekend, playing blocks with my baby son while sunlight streamed through the windows and we listened to old time gospel music. My husband had taken my daughter out for a bike ride. It was in the middle of a busy day and it was a moment of bliss and one where I stayed present as I could in order to savour it.

 

Day 5: One of my greatest sources of inspiration has always been… what other people are doing. This has also been one of my greatest sources of deflation (unfavourable comparison being of my gremlins).

 

Day 6: Whenever thunder grumbles overhead, I think of… how lucky I am to be cosy and warm indoors.

 

Day 7: It’s the first thing that comes to mind when I wake in the morning and the last thing I think of before I go to sleep: deep, deep sleep. I want a lot of if. Invariably, more than I actually get.

 

Day 8: I wouldn’t call it a collection as such, but I do seem to have a lot of… books. Candles. Jewellery. Dresses. Oracle and tarot decks. Cowgirl boots.

 

Day 9: I immediately feel my body tense up whenever I hear… the words You should be. Especially if it’s followed by the words: restingthinnerable to manage that; on top of this by now.

 

Day 10: The moment I enter the kitchen I feel… calm, clear and organised. If the kitchen is tidy and clean, that is. The total opposite if not.

 

Day 11: I am trying not to talk about... sex.

 

Day 12: This is the best part of my day: the part where I have done as much as I can, everyone is fed and bathed and sleeping, and I can snuggle under the covers to read a while then sleeeeeeeeep.

 

Day 13: I sometimes wonder if I will ever… be a published writer.

 

Day 14: This is what makes me feel lucky: cuddles.

 

Day 15: I close my eyes and take a deep breath. I wish… for answers to arrive.

 

* Two and a half years on and I still haven’t got another tattoo. Curious.

 

I am so grateful to Kat for hosting the April Moon Challenge and for allowing me to come along for the ride. It was amazing to read the responses of those that chose to share, and to know a host of people were playing along in their own way too! I feel so lucky to have been a part of it all.
