"What," you say, "is the relevance of that snowy picture up there to a blog about challenges?"
I'm glad you asked.
Last week at this time, it looked outside just as it does today, wet. The picture is what the view down my driveway looked like twenty-four hours later. In other words, it changed. It grew beautiful. That picture is a reminder to embrace the possibility of everyday and delight in the unexpected.
Anyway, it's Saturday again.
How's everyone doing? We've blogged this week about procrastination and about working outside your comfort zone. I'm indulging in a bit of both. Procrastination in that there's a whole lot of book to finish before the last day of this month -- my deadline. And outside my comfort level in that I am trying my best to write forward despite the sinkhole I left behind about ten pages ago. Normally, I would founder around for quite awhile as I thought of a way to fill it in before going on, but I'm trying to let it go. Frankly, I don't enjoy knowing it's lurking back there. The trouble with a sinkhole is that objects next to it tend to fall in when no one is looking. Ack!
Did you meet your goals? I can't honestly say that I met mine, but I did move forward about 6500 words. Or sideways. Anyway, there are 26 more pages now than there was a week ago at this time. Time to put the old nose down and hunker in big time!
