Celebrate Good Times
Welcome to this week's edition of Celebrate The Small Things, the weekly bloghop that celebrates the good things (however seemingly minor). Please click on the pic on the left for a complete list of participants.
Here's what I'm celebrating this week:
—I attended my fabulous goddaughter's dance recital. She's been dancing since she was three and I haven't yet missed a recital. I love seeing how much she's grown as a dancer. I know I'm probably not the most unbiased person on this subject, but she's damn talented and I am so proud of her.
—I've spent much of the last week writing a scene for my WIP. Yes, a single scene (but I've written, like, three drafts of it so far). It doesn't have an proper beginning or ending yet, but it's been an interesting process so far and I'm honestly just happy to be writing something. That's not to say that my creative floodgates have broken open or anything, but there's at least a steady stream trickling through.
—Also on the writing front, I've created a new character for the same WIP. I don't know much about him yet except that he's going to be a bad guy. In fact, his name is currently "To Be Named Later" (which I think is probably a little long). But even in his character infancy, TBNL has completely destroyed my plan for the second half of the story. Stupid bad guy. Now I'm working without a GPS unit or a road map or any sort of directional guidance type thing. Which is scary and thrilling all at the same time. At any rate, I'm looking forward to seeing where this WIP ends up.
—On the health front, I've run/walked fifteen miles so far this week. And I still have two more days (this post will be published before my Friday jaunt) in which to log more miles. I wonder if I can break twenty.
And that's gonna do it for me today. What might you be celebrating?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
