As I sit here staring at a blank screen, I wonder what I should write about. Of course, in the big picture, it really doesn't matter. What matters along the journey is simply that I work on the task I have set for myself.
Baby steps, they call it.
It's like exercise..... some days I go gangbusters! I can kick and punch, jump and swing, lift weights and run.. and I am amazing. Some days, I can barely lift my arm :-) But what matters is that I consistently, every day... use my body and make it work a little. I wish I was as eager to work on exercise as I am writing!
Some days I can sit and crank out 3 or 4 essays. Some days, I stare at my list of ideas and go blank. I admire people who write novels. Two of my family members are working on novels right now.... but my brain doesn't seem to want to stay on track that long. Somehow I am compelled to write about the struggles and accomplishments of my middle aged mom place. I DO think sometimes of writing a memoir though.... just because I have worked through a lot of garbage and think it might help others. At a minimum, it might be entertaining :-)
I guess the trick to life and accomplishment is to keep at it.... one day at a time.... so, on that note, there is another load of laundry waiting... a couple of bills to pay... some photos to scan... floors to sweep (anybody want to recommend good vacuuming products for pet owners?)... and on, and on, and on.... with a lunch date in the middle (I DO like having a resolution to keep up with friends! Does that make a lunch date a baby step? Oh yeah.....)
