**Cue the Rocky music** I was down 5,700 words last night when I went to bed. I've written that much in a day before. I think my highest word count for non-fiction is 13,000 words in a day, but yes, that was 15 hours of straight writing. Someday, I might turn those words into a … Continue reading Making a comeback
At least one of them this week. I'm close, very close, to reaching my word goal for this week. I might even be able to get there if this blog post runs what it typically does. So, I think that one is in the bag. Painting, however, will be the next challenge. I do think … Continue reading I approach the goal
I mentioned before how I had to buy the 90 day planning calendar even though I didn't know what I was going to do with it. A similar thing happened in 2020 when I was at work and there was a 2021 planner from Boy's Town sitting out on the counter. Things put on the … Continue reading 2021 Wrap-Up
It's still New Year's Eve where I am as I'm writing this, but fireworks are exploding already -- please, it's not even 2022 in New York yet, people!

Well, getting up with the sunrise just isn't working for me. I guess that experiment is over. I wake when I wake. Of course, I woke shortly before Kreeli came galloping in my room announcing that she needed to go out. At 15, if she's running in the morning, that means its urgent. It means … Continue reading Resisting change
It started early, as I mentioned yesterday. I had places to go and things to get done, which went well -- better than expected actually. Then my son and I went grocery shopping. Glad to have that done for a week or so. Then I got back to work on my #2 item on my … Continue reading A day that went fast
I had to sit down and write down a list of to-do items and set priorities today. I was starting to feel as if I have a log jam and need to break that up. That's what happens when my brain goes squirreling off to chase shiny objects, even though things like setting up a … Continue reading Setting priorities
I feel like I've been working on a lot of writing projects during late summer and early fall, but for a while it felt like nothing was actually getting done. I felt a bit stuck. But lately, I've been like a mad woman possessed and things are finally starting to break loose. I finished and … Continue reading Breaking loose
Because you will choose how you define 2020 and your life.
