I hope you had a splendid weekend. We had a lovely two days of 45 degrees (Fahrenheit), which melted a bunch of snow and left a fresh, floral scent in the air. Tomorrow it’s back to ice and snow however – February always has the most curious weather.
So, enough about the weather. That’s boring. This post is really meant to be an update on the stories of our book! Here is where I must make a confession: I’ve been lax. I haven’t edited the rough draft at all (gulp). The past week has been busy beyond belief, and when I have spare moments I waste them on naps or staring at the ceiling (though I’m not quite convinced those are wastes in themselves).
I have a lot of work to do on my story, and I’m intimidated by it. It’s a long tower I have to climb, and I’m afraid of heights. I’m afraid to even scale the first few feet. I’ve certainly thought about it, of course. I’ve even considered building a new tower entirely. But I know I have something good here and I need to stick to it, and I’m determined to.
So, that’s my astounding progress. How riveting! Here’s to finishing it this week (I’ve no choice – deadlines! heh.) Here’s to hacking away at my sculpture until it’s a work of art – even if it’s abstract art I’ll be pleased.
Here’s to climbing that darned tower!
