I just wanted to let everyone know that my most recent blog entry is so long because I'm trying to write at least 1,000 words a day. I thought it was going to be really, really easy. Phew, I was wrong. I got stuck around 500 words. I got up, got a cup of ice coffee and banana. (FOR THE STRENGTH TO KEEP...GOING!) With Josiah playing Lego beside me and Mae sleeping in her crib I kept on. I made it. It's not a terribly flattering blog. It's not an easy read. But I made it to over 1,000 words. (Something I did in high school and college without batting an eye). My grammar and structure needs work, but that comes with practice.
During my recent "reading injury" recovery I finished reading two books CELL (the book that put me into my present back situation) and "On Writing" which is Stephen King's book on how to write. I wasn't reading it for inspiration. I was reading it out of curiosity. Despite my muscle relaxed haze, I was inspired and have made a commitment to write everyday either here or in one of my journals. So... I give you my first entry out of that inspiration. Comment away!
