Thursday, cha cha cha...Thursday, cha cha cha (please sing in a jazzy-latin beat)
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!"
-- Dr. Seuss
So today is Thursday and I’m sitting here in my sweats, debating if I should run on the treadmill, do the laundry, or work on my next chapter. Plus I have a load of dishes in my sink. It’s amazing how those dishes grow even when the kids do the dishes the night before.
As far as my writing, I have made a goal for myself. Write a chapter of my book each day. I am only one chapter behind that goal and almost at 20,000 words. Hurray!
It all started when I had to write a synopsis for my creative writing class. That turned into a first chapter (which was well received), and now has turned into 1/3rd of a book. I’m trying to have it finished before I begin my summer classes at school in the middle of June. Plus still raise my kids and dig a path to my wash machine.
Can it be done? Yes it can (thank you Bob the Builder for those inspiring words).
So, my blog posts may be short for the time being. I am busily writing up a storm. I’ll let you know when I’m done!
P.S. My husband and I have challenged each other to lose weight. I will lose ten pounds and he will lose fifteen. I have given up chocolate chips and my beloved chocolate candy bars. *sob* But it is for a good cause, and I am sure to win without the chocolate laying around the house. Now if he will just stop buying that Snickers Ice Cream.
