Three Things…

I came across this on Paula’s blog The Book Jotter. Her new idea is to regularly write three things she observes in the world around her which include:

Reading
Not necessarily books but anything adverts, blogs, articles, magazines etc anything that involves the written word.

Looking
Anything that you have seen it could be a great film in the cinema, a theatre production or something in nature that caught your eye and is worth mentioning.

Thinking
Writing about a brief memory or thought or opinion about any topic the only rule is it must be “on your mind” currently.

Doing
Paula also suggests another topic as “Doing” in my 3 things I think I will scrap “Thinking” and take part in the “Doing” choosing things that you have very recently done or will be doing soon, such as a charity event, eating a delicious meal out, going to an exhibition or museum.

If you want to also take part or find out more about Paula’s idea please go to her blog

Here’s my first Three Things…

Reading
Since starting the blog I have really got into writing, I keep thinking about writing my own creative pieces then feeling silly and not really knowing my direction or what to write about. I came across a 3 page article in a magazine I read “Putting Pen to Paper” by Sarah Orme.

Sarah basically says that you should write when you are relaxed, don’t feel pressure to show others your work until you are ready, carry pen and paper everywhere so you can write on the go. There is also helpful writing resources and writing prompts to get the creative juices flowing. I’m hoping to make more time to write some creative pieces and this article has definitely got the creative juices flowing!

Looking
Last night myself and my boyfriend watched the documentary Blackfish.

This is a documentary about the mistreatment of Orca whales in Sea World. I knew that some trainers had died or been hurt by the Orca but until watching this programme I didn’t realise how many! The whales are kept in small tanks, are sometimes isolated, they bully each other causing lacerations, they are underfed and over worked. It was a really eye opening and sad documentary to watch and I can’t believe after everything that has happened, Orca are still trapped in Seaworld. When I was travelling in New Zealand I was lucky enough to actually see wild Orca. I feel even more privileged that I saw these beautiful intelligent amazing animals in their natural habitat. Blackfish is on Netflix if you haven’t watch it.

This sunday I am taking part in Race for Life in Plymouth. I will be running/jogging with my friend 5k. We decided to do this run in memory of friends and family who have sadly died or are suffering with cancer. I haven’t done any training so am hoping I can run the majority of the race on the day. If you would like to sponsor us please follow this link.

Thank you again to Paula at The Book Jotter for coming up with a great blog post idea. I look forward to sharing my three things with you each week and I hope this inspires you to join in as well! Thanks for reading. Katie x

    Hey, this is brilliant, Katie. A delightful summing-up of all that is important to you at the moment of writing. You’ve absolutely captured the essence of what I intended with Three Things… Thank you so much. 🤗

    I think whales and dolphins are such extraordinary creatures, I love to see them in the wild, but on principal have never gone to see one in captivity. The scene you captured of an Orca in New Zealand is the way it should be – always. 🐳

    Good luck in the 5k Race For Life on Sunday.🏃‍♀️
