Good Times

So the first day was good. I had a mountain of paperwork to fill out. Got that all done. I have my work cut out for me but I’m really looking forward to it. Not much other to report than that. Just gotta roll up the sleeves and get ‘er done. 🙂

I did write some on Sunday night. Only about 500 words but it’s better than nothing. Trying to retrain the brain and the writing habits. I didn’t think this story would be easy to write but it’s harder than I expected. In some ways, I feel rusty at writing. I think I’m going to use November as a sort-of NaNo for me. Sort of in that I’m not going to start from scratch but I *am* going to push myself to write 2000 words a day and try to add an additional 50,000 to my current WIP. If I can do that, then I’ll have a complete first draft.

I have no more excuses for not writing. The OTFS contest is done except for sending out the entries to the final judges and the non-finalists their stuff back. But then the Winter Rose starts up in December. 😀 I’m a glutton for punishment I guess! The nice thing is, I will only be sitting on one board next year instead of two. I’m really trying hard to scale back my volunteerism. Not because I don’t want to do it anymore – that’s certainly not the case. But because I foresee less free time in the evenings. Which is fine by me.

Not much else going on other than that. Man and I went to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop for dinner last night. Oh! And I bought tickets for the Nutcracker in December at Bass Hall. I can’t wait! And yes, the Man is going with me. 🙂

Happy Tuesday, ya’ll.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
