We’re having a lot of lightning, so I’m going to keep this light – to get it published before I possibly lose power.

Hopefully that doesn’t happen, since I just got my fridge plugged in after trying to defrost it – I’m sure the food is fairly warm by now.

I made a couple of snowmen from the frost off of the coils to entertain myself.

If I ever go again, I’m planning to bring a ponytail holder.
My hair went crazy in the wind.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

I did Day 149 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through L.A. Writers’ Lab and worked on formatting my manuscript, which I’m calling, “Can Cancer Be a Gift?” Little by little its coming together.

My Office Management Strategy to Cut Down on Distractions as a Writer

I sat down today and worked on a budget, going through bills to see what my monthly expenses have been and making calls concerning ones that weren’t making sense.

Tuesdays are when I try to get my “office duties” done – like paperwork and paying attention to emails; but I’ve realized once a week isn’t cutting it for that kind of stuff, so I’ve scheduled in one hour per weekday to work on that category as well. So far, it seems to have helped. I’m only two days in, so it’s hard to tell for sure.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

I like to see landmark posts like this one down below. Number fifty seemed somehow monumental when I published 02/19/2024. I just went back and reread it. I’m glad I did. It gave me a good perspective. I’m still far from my goals; but I can see that progress has been made. My living room and office aren’t a mess anymore, and maybe I’m a little less of one myself. 🙂


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.
