Something good happened when things changed. Ack! Changes! Scary. Rather than write up a whole different post about it, go to my other blog (http://encountersinwritingandtheatre.blogspot.com/2013/12/shake-it-up.html) to read it. I'll have to see how I can apply my own blog to my writing...and life. (Eek.)
I don't know what it is about me and check off lists but I usually have them--"them," yes, I have multiple lists. It keeps me organized, I suppose. I have my writer's list - the things I want to write, edit, or market. I have my daily list - you know, like get up, exercise, take a shower, eat breakfast. I feel like that keeps me on task if my mind wanders (such as back to the book I'm reading). I used to have the home-school list - "Children, you will do something in each of these subject areas each day, before doing anything else at all, whatsoever." (those poor children). I have the decluttering list, the house fix-up list, the bucket list, finish-these-projects list, and right now the Christmas gifts list (things to make or things already done). Many of these lists get updated - improved, if you will - to be better, more efficient, sometimes more realistic. Well, as organized as they might keep me, those lists always get thrown away at the end of the day. Or at least the ones that have that day's must-do's. The other ones don't necessarily get thrown away but they tend to be put away where they can be properly ignored...until I realize it's time to get back on track. [Okay! I'm done with this blog entry. On to the next item!]
Marian, that's me!
I love stories! I love to read fairy tales, fables, stories from around the world. I especially love scifi and fantasy. And I like to write. And watch movies. And play board games. And do theatre things.
