So I’m at one of those terrible yet blessed moments at work where the accounting program that I practically live out of has completely crashed. We’ve been running tests for hours trying to make sure our data is all intact. I’ve run out of papers to push in the meantime, and so I started daydreaming about you, blog-world.
We haven’t spoken in so long!
I do lurk around some of my favorite blogs sometimes, but I’ve pretty much had to extinguish my blogging for now because I wanted to get my perspective back and not live on a computer any more than I had to for work and writing.
While I’ve been gone, I’ve bought a house, started remodeling it, brainstormed another story, read a million books (mayhaps a slight exaggeration) , finally figured out how to read Dickensian sentence-paragraphs without getting lost, and grown up a lot. (Still so far to go!!!)
I still absolutely dream about being a writer, and I’m pretty sure it will happen–I guess I’ve just been soaking up a little more life to put in my fiction.
So, as if you asked, here is my new to-do list for 2011:
1. Outline my new story like I’ve never outlined before
2. Write my new story
3. Go skydiving
4. Decorate my house
5. Take lessons at something, perhaps guitar (self taught and not that good) or Spanish
6. Sell something I made. Maybe a painting, maybe some jewlery, maybe some refurb’d furniture, but something
7. Focus on putting others first and spend more time getting to know my Creator. (My favorite way to do this is to be OUTDOORS!!!)
There, perfect 7. And now it’s out there, on the internet, so I can’t take it back.
Thanks for listening, blog-world.
