My "fun with markers" evening I had planned last night didn't work out so well. It took too long to get the markers started, one of them didn't want to work at all, and one began bleeding. I only got 4 markers going, so you can see that I didn't have a high success rate … Continue reading Oh, the numbers
How did it feel when I dropped 20,000+ words onto my spreadsheet? Okay, first, why only 20,000 on a book that ended up being almost 70,000 words long? I had already counted 48,000 words towards the book on my spreadsheet. Granted, I deleted off nearly 10,000, but that was one of the reasons for starting … Continue reading The results of my experiment
Some days I wish I could be better. Some days I have strange wins. A win is a win, no matter how oddly it comes, so I will take it. Some days I wish I wouldn’t say stupid things and could keep my mouth shut. Some days I wonder what I’m doing, living, why am … Continue reading Every day
I almost didn't go for my ride this morning because of things that happened, but I decided to go anyway. I even added in another block. At least today didn't feel like I had bricks in my pockets, not that it was "easy." In my garden, I have eggplant which are nearly ready. My tomatoes … Continue reading Update on the daily page goal
Today was the first day I didn't have to take cold medicine to get through the day. Woo hoo! I'm hoping that means I'm recovering. It feels like I've been fighting this cold for a long time. I wasn't sleeping well and I was waking up feeling like I'd hardly gotten any sleep even when … Continue reading The train moves a little faster

Work in process This one will probably be finished tomorrow. I feel like I'm trying to get up the courage to work on a larger … Continue reading A work in progress and fear
I thought it would be easy to get back to writing today. Boy, was I wrong. I sat in front of my keyboard (usually with my phone in hand) doing everything but writing. When I did try to focus long enough to tap at the keys for a moment, I would get one or two … Continue reading If only it were easy
This is a hard post to write. Why? Because I see myself as never good enough. Writing a post like this demands that I admit it. People around me would be shocked if they knew how deeply this runs to my core. After all, I was valedictorian of my graduating class and voted most likely … Continue reading Never good enough?
The courage to start and the willingness to try. How can those two elements expand your life?
Last week was a busy week. It was perfect week. As I said last Monday, my son had come home from college for the holiday. It was great having him home (of course). He hung out with me, he hung out with his brother, we all hung out together -- it was a whole holiday … Continue reading Progress – November 26, 2018
