Some weeks, I dream big and set a hefty writing goal for myself. Other weeks, not so big.
This week my goal was on the heavy side: 10k. I'm 700 words away, and I should be finishing instead of blogging. Oh well. I'll get it done--I have until Monday, although I haven't scheduled any time to write this weekend.
I also spent some time creating horizontal tabs for the blog, which you can see above. I smashed out some text for each of the tabs, which I'm sure is rife with typos since I didn't have time to proofread much before we had to leave for mid-day dog walks. I have to remind myself that editing is not overrated.
And check out this hilarious article about some of the pitches agents have endured.
Finally, we are heading to the Renaissance Fair this weekend (yes, we are dressing up!). This is a good reminder for me about all those things in my life I enjoy having, but I really don't need. Do you need your computer to write a novel? Nope. Thesaurus? Nope. Blog? Nope.
All that is necessary is paper, a utensil of some sort and imagination. The rest might just be clutter.
Which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes-- "The things you own end up owning you." Probably an easy one, but does anyone know where that quote is from?
