If you know me, even just a little bit, you’ll know that I’ve just gotten a new (and kick-ass!) job which is kicking my ass. No excuses, though—right?
So as my schedule picks up, I am having to make more adjustments. Those are ever so slight and tricky. As luck would have it, my innately organized self is saving me. I have never been more glad for electronic calendars and to-do lists. Yet, I find myself still cutting out the things that I want to be doing most (?, question mark!) like writing. I know you’ve been there and I know you’ve done that. It is a fear of mine that I will never succeed at getting a work published because I do not put in enough blood, sweat, and tears.
There is a quote from B. Franklin, and who know how serious he was when writing this, that says “write something worth reading or do something worth writing”. I have it taped to my computer screen at work. I read it when I need some help. Like another’s prayer, I see those words and let myself feel like it is alright.
April is around the corner, quite literally, there is a contest deadline I want to meet by midnight, the art season is picking up, I’m traveling for work on Saturday, and my birthday occurs at the end of the month. Another year knocked down.
