“For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.”~Ralph Waldo Emerson, American poet
Well, here goes….
It’s been said that if you state something publicly, then you are held accountable for that action. With that in mind, here I go, creating a deadline:
I will publish my book on November 20.
There, you have it. There, I have it: a deadline. Accountability. Motivation. Or insanity.
Whatever. It’s all the same, really, just different degrees.
Writing. Rewriting. Editing. Kickstarting. Or Indiegogoing. More rewriting. Coffee-ing.
With all that going on, and a spur-of-the-moment, how-much-more-last-minute-can-I-be decision to drive down to South Carolina this weekend and receive my NFPW award in person. My Mom-Star Trek e-book is my first one published out in The Real World, and to win a National award is…well, I’m just damn proud of myself.
Oh, right, I got lost in all that self-congratulatory stuff. I’m just diving into this week’s Diva Zentangle Challenge #183. This week is a UMT (Use My Tangle) challenge featuring the tangle “X-did” by Annette Carlo.
I wasn’t feeling very Zen when I did this, but I adore X-Did. Dainty. Lacy. Delicate, like a snowflake. Or wrapping paper. Why I think that, I don’t know. It’s a fun tangle and I’m glad I had the opportunity to play with it.
Now off to write. or edit. Or drink tea; coffee is for later in the writing stage.
