The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Yesterday was a Great day

Yesterday was my best day yet as a writer. Somehow I feel like I am finally coming into my true beginning as "writer-sweetie". This used to happen to me as "singer sweetie" also. I would work on a song and not really connect with it, or work on a technique and not really understand how it works in my body. That might go on for weeks or even months, until one day... poof... it suddenly came together. Like Magic.

I am not exactly saying that I wrote an entire book yesterday and will be published in no time. All I can say at this point is that I approached the day with confidence and focus, a clear goal and an idea of how to achieve that goal... and for the first time in a long time, I achieved a lot of what I set out to do. Small steps are still steps in the right direction sometimes.

Probably one of my proudest moments of the day was after lunch, when G went back to work and my belly was full. I lost focus a bit during lunch because we were watching tv and eating, and what I really wanted to do when he left was go up and crawl into our comfy bed and take a nap. I resisted the temptation, though, and went to my computer instead. I got some ideas worked out, read a few chapters in my "Romance Writer's Handbook" and even wrote a few quality pages in my novella. I know this probably sounds stupid to most hard-working adults. My proudest moment was not taking a nap? A bit pathetic maybe, but at the same time, I would bet there are more closet nappers, procrastinators, and generally unhappy, didn't-accomplish-my-goals type people out there than most people care to see or admit. It actually is surprising to me how much I can get done in one day if I just focus and believe in myself. Now I just have to make today even better.
