We Are Not Jello--Put Away Your Mold -

Donna Michelle Kilgore shares her often-humorous account of the challenges of trying to fit into a mold of proper homeschool methods, the realization that her family isn't at all typical, and the rewards of embracing the perfectly imperfect procedures that really work for her family.

Just When I Had Everything Under Control -
When you finally learn that everything is a learning experience you can just sit back and relax right?

Not if you’re me. If you’re me, you totally lose control the minute you think you’ve finally gotten everything under control.

  •  A Writer’s Reflection in the Muse’s Mirror

    Jul 12, 2014 by
    What do you see when you stare into the mirror?
     For me, looking into a mirror is an experience somewhere between Harry Potter’s Mirror of Erised and a game of “Bloody Mary”— except my bloody Nemesis is a muse named Sybil, not a spirit named Mary.

    Though, I must admit, they can be equally frightening.

The Conscious Dreamer


 

Each month on the 28th 

The Conscious Dreamer 

awakens at Read Write Muse.

 


I'm well aware that reality is bombarding me with distractions, responsibilities, and worthy causes. Reality tries to keep me from living my dream. 

 

But, my dream is bigger than my reality. 

No matter what, I have to keep this dream alive. 

 

Follow along as I race against reality and reawaken the dreamer inside in the midst of babies, bills, college, homeschooling, and working from home. Dive with me into fantastic books as I escape reality just long enough to maintain my sanity!

 

Here's a small sample of what you'll unlock at Read Write Muse:



Dream until your dreams come true.

Today begins a journey of the heart, soul, and imagination.

The “Conscious Dreamer” Awakens!


Sybil’s absence allowed me to uncover a secret I’d kept hidden from her sharpened utensils. Can I share it with you? You won’t tell Sybil, will you?
The secret is: I’m a conscious dreamer.
I’ve been accused of having my head in the clouds, being off in my own world, and dancing to the beat of a different drum. 
Toss me a cliche about being “other” and I’ve worn it at some point in my life.
As a child they called me “imaginative.” As a child it was okay to dream. Why must that change as we enter adulthood? Suddenly, “It’s time to face reality!” and being a dreamer is a terrible sin. Call me a rebel, but I didn’t stop dreaming. I just kept my dreams hidden away along with my imagination. I’m tired of hiding. I’m going to go so far as to say there’s nothing wrong with being a dreamer.
