This is pre-posted in honor of my day off; but I’m gonna make a prediction that by this point:

I’m totally exhausted.

I’ll tell you why tomorrow…

(That’s a prediction, too)

I do want to include this post from a year ago:

I have always loved these two pictures of my mom

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

Hopefully I did Day 140 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through L.A. Writers’ Lab.

* Editor’s Note: I COMPLETELY forgot to do my daily writing, because I kept telling myself, “This is your day off”. I had plenty of time waiting in lines in airports and sitting on planes; but it just didn’t happen, so I did NOT do Day 140 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through L.A. Writers’ Lab. My streak hit a speed bump; but it now I have a chance to start over.

What I’m Doing as Chief Operating Officer of My Writing Business to Move Forward

As I was pre-formatting these posts, I realized on this one that I had been writing L.A. Writers’ Lab wrong for a long, long time. I was in a dilemma about whether to go back and fix it on every post, or assume other people mispell things, too.

The fact that I just misspelled that word makes me think so.

This COO is making an executive decision to move forward and not go back and try to fix everything.

I want to be conscientious; but at some point, perfection becomes the enemy of progress.

Here’s another time I had to let go of making things perfect…

I’d like to think the other strategic thing I did today was to make it over The Atlantic Ocean safe and sound.

If not, there probably won’t be any more posts. Either way –

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

I just skimmed this post and am so glad I’m out of that season. Hopefully I’ve settled down some:

I do love the story at the end of this. 🙂 I bet my mom’s doctor was shocked. Talk about a Hippa Violation!


I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
