Entry 182: Running to Catch Up

I’ve never been good at keeping a journal. It all boils down to consistency. There are days when I skip making an entry. Life can crowd out the time I need to write down my thoughts about a day’s events. I’ve also been reluctant to pose as an expert on the writing process. If I knew anything of value about writing, my work would already be in print. I went out on a skinny limb in 2022 when I shared my 365 days of thankfulness. The exercise forced me to put myself out there with my soft belly exposed. Thank you for joining me on my journey in the written word. Therefore, I plan to keep a journal in 2023 to document my progress. I will call this post Entry 182: Running to Catch Up.

Note: I consider editing an important part of the writing process. Editing is where all the artistry happens.

My morning writing before I started Entry 182: Running to Catch up

I listened to chapters 30-35 of Amazing Buchanan and the Beast this morning. It surprised me that I had only a few changes that needed to be made. I will start at 31 tomorrow. The prologue needs a second look, but I will leave that for tomorrow. I would like to have the editing done by the end of August. At the rate I am moving, that goal might be impossible. I still feel exhausted from the adventure we took. I feel two steps behind while I am running to catch up.

Still haven’t thought about the poetry I need to write. Maybe something will come to me while I walk this afternoon. It will be our first time back at the gym since we came home. My old bones feel the need to get moving. The inactivity could be the reason for my mind being sluggish.

The book I am currently reading right now and Entry 182: Running to Catch Up

Confusion reigns in the John Dashwood house when Anne Steele drops the bomb about her sister Lucy and Edward Ferrars’ four-year engagement. His mother promptly disinherits him and gives her fortune to his younger brother, Robert. I am enjoying Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.

What I’m listening to right now and Entry 182: Running to Catch Up

I put on Eric Lindell’s ‘The Sun and the Sea.” It is the second CD included in The Head and the Heart. I enjoy the mellow music in this collection.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
