I have had this song running through my mind off and on for the past few days:
Those who know me even slightly will admit I am no optimist, which makes this choice of songs all the more unaccountable. Nevertheless, uncharacteristic or not, I must say that the past several days have been rather lovely. Vacation has a good deal to do with that, and family, so even though I am returning to my day job tomorrow, I find myself in a more-than-usually equable frame of mind.
I have not, mind you, forgotten the challenge I have set for myself. The saying, “Well begun is half-done” seems too optimistic when looking ahead to 52 weeks of short writing pieces. I have ideas for about a tenth of those weeks so far– not a comfortable position from which to begin, I must say. I simply tell myself it wouldn’t be a challenge if I had it all worked out from the very start. I will set a schedule: Tuesdays appear to be the best day for the deadline, according to my other commitments. That means you may look for my first short, a short-short story inspired by an idea donated by Jacob Baugher, on Tuesday, January 7th, 2014. Which means I had better get started writing it, hadn’t I? (See you Tuesday!)
WHADDUP!! I’m excited for you. Get it done and I’ll feature it on my blog! I’ll offer constructive comments if you want via google drive or email. Good Luck!
