I took a mini trip with my mom to St. George, Utah. We only stayed overnight, but in that short time I had a lot of fun, from shopping to sitting at local restaurants.
My favorite pastime just might be doing anything other than what I should be doing. What cracks me up about this is a lot of time the things I should be doing are things I like doing, I’m just getting lazy.
Write for you.
I’d like to copy a poem (free verse) that I wrote just now as I thought about the recent events in the world. Others write so eloquently, feeling such passion, and I am just one voice–not lost, but woven into a grand choir.
Twice before, I have opened up a copy of J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye and have failed to make it very far into the book. Finally I sat down with it, determined. I don’t know what it is about this novel, but it irritated me that I hadn’t even made it halfway through the book before. It wasn’t even that long! I couldn’t quit this time!
So I began. And this time I finished.
I have been very low energy of late. Work’s been interesting as I sit in my office with heavy eyes and a bobbing head. Then there’s the lack of focus. I haven’t been able to really concentrate on my goals, like finishing novels and prepping Sidekick for publishing.
Once upon a time there was a girl (and still is, in fact, for she’s sitting at the computer this very minute) and she decided she wanted to be a writer.
