Morning…at least, I think it’s morning. Looking out the window, all I can see is fog. That’s okay, thought, because it’s matching what’s going on in my head. Not a lot, so far.
On the writing front, something great happened yesterday. I came across an old blog post of Gwen’s (I think her last name is Hernandez – but I’m not sure) explaining how to create templates in Scrivener. She’s the author of “Scrivener for Dummies.” I’ve been wanting to do that, because as I plot out what’s happening, I’d like to make sure I have some thorough scene analyses to go along. Hence, the additional templates. All I can say is, Gwen’s a goddess. She’s gotten me out of a heckuva jam.
My goal for the day is to get all my templates created and start another Scrivener file to make my planning more comprehensive. If I’m really lucky, I’ll get some writing done, too.
I’ve not made it to the grocery store yet today, so I’m on track so far. I’m still looking to spend only on local or USA products.
The plan is to go to the gym later this afternoon. I think there’s a class I want to take, but I have to check the schedule to make sure. Luckily, the schedule’s online so that will only take a moment.
I’ve been failing miserably when it comes to taking time for myself. Writing in a personal journal has gone by the wayside. Meditation hasn’t happened. I’m more focused on trying to study for my teacher certification so I can work in the K-12 school system, and finding a part-time job because my hours have been cut at work. I’m down to 24 right now. Not good. But the pendulum always swings, and there will be an upside. I know it’s coming, and that stops me from fretting too much.
I keep using a mantra from Firefly, originally uttered by Kaylee: “Everything’s shiny, not to fret.”
So far, it works. Life is good.
