Good morning Monday! I hope you are all doing fabulous. Me, I'm a bit tired, but that's to be expected. I was up stupid early on Thursday (as you all read about HERE); then my husband went out of town Friday night and I never sleep well when he's gone. I ended up on the couch all night letting "How to Train Your Dragon" play on loop. Sadly, I didn't dream about dragons, but my cat waited until 5:30 to perch on the arm of the couch and ask for breakfast. He's learning. The rest of the weekend found me hunched over my math book (bleck), wandering through a new local produce market (huzzah!) and creating a cafe at home (groovy!). In other words, it was a good weekend and I kind of hated to see it go.
BUT: another week, another opportunity to pound out some words, wander down a few more rabbit trails and accomplish,you know, SOMETHING :).
Did you do anything exciting this weekend? Or was it a nice, relaxing few days with nothing eventful whatsoever? I like those kind too :)
Another question: what do you do when you have a story you believe in 100%, that you've been working on (off and on again) for about 10 years, that just simply REFUSES to give you an open door? In other words, this trilogy of mine has been written and rewritten three times. I love it. I believe in it. I just can't figure out how to go about starting it! It's so frustrating! I've walked away from it so many times, come back, rewrite the first few chapters and - it just doesn't work. I wish I knew what to do.
Maybe I'll try meditation.
And now, here's a neat little poster my husband found (not sure where). Consider it inspiration to blow all your reservations out of the water, chase away those self doubts and give "but what will THEY think about it" a good swift kick in the pants. Cheers!
