A Lofty Goal?

I spent all summer stressing over finishing classes, work and all the other daily responsibilities like cooking dinner and having meaningful conversations with my teen and more. I tried hard to fit in the important things, but too often I got sidetracked by tiny details that don’t really matter in the long run.

Your opinion of what matters might very well be different from mine, but I have a goal—I have started writing a book, and I want to finish it. I’m only 13 pages into it, but all writers begin with a sentence, right?

I am ashamed to say that I didn’t add one word to my rough draft over the summer. Since my work and study schedules are lighter this year, I think it’s time to remedy that. Maybe I will have a completed manuscript by the end of the school year.

        I’m always surprised when I have a new follower on my blog!

  1. Well, guess what? We are neighbors. I’m in Kansas! You keep writing and you’ll keep getting new followers. When I get all caught up on responding to all my notifications, I go out blog reading and if I like what I read, I follow.. You’ve probably been busy writing that new book, all day today, huh? LOL me neither! One day I will……………………………………Hope you had a good day. πŸ™‚

    • Well, neighbor, today was a pisser! Tomorrow’s Friday and we’re off Monday, so it has to get better, right? πŸ™‚ I WILL write at least a few hundred words this weekend (please, Lord, help me!). I have to write in between teaching Spanish and doing laundry at the nursing home on weekends! Hope your day was great!

      • Well, neighbor, today has been a real pisser for me, too. Yes, tomorrow is Friday, every day is Friday for me. I see you talk just like I do. LOL I’m always saying Lord, please help me! And, I’m going to keep talking just like that until he starts listening. LOL πŸ™‚ I’ve already kind of started my book, my blog. My book will be written from all the things I write on my blog. It’ll be a book about what it’s like to live with several invisible chronic illnesses. It’ll be about my journey, Lord, help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope your day, tomorrow, is better. Have a great weekend. πŸ™‚
