Hump Day is that time during the week when we can look behind us and then ahead of us, contemplating our progress and looking forward to the weekend.
Since October is my “birthday month,” I do feel a bit of chagrin as the days move forward. But then I remind myself that the passage of time is a good thing. Especially considering the alternatives.
When we add another year to our number of years, we can feel pride at how far we’ve come. Or we can experience regrets at time lost. I prefer to do the former. I like to think of all I’ve learned over the years, especially what I’ve learned from my mistakes.
Mistakes are a great teacher. Especially if we determine not to repeat them.
This is my “go-to” blog for creative endeavors. I’ve even created my own little NaNoWriMo button:
I’ll be spending my days between now and November 1 trying to sort out the various story ideas and settling on something that will keep me writing every day through the whole month.
I have a lot of reading ahead, too, but I’ll slow down the pace a bit so as not to interfere with the Grand Plan of 50,000 words from November 1-30.
What is the worst that can happen? No matter what, trying to accomplish something is better than sitting on my hands and wishing to do it….
It’s been two years since my last book was published, so I think it’s time for fresh ideas and new projects.
Is anyone else out there going for this one? I hope you’ll stop by and we can share the dream….
