#AccountaClub Friday, August 23, 2019

Standard

It’s Friday! That means it’s #AccountaClub time! And this week, I have writing news.

I have finally, finally finished the first draft of the manuscript I’ve been working on since about the time of the dinosaurs.

Well, maybe not quite that long.

But a long time, nonetheless. Can I get a woo-hoo?

So yes, editing lies ahead, but it’s been a long time since I finished a novel draft. Good week in that respect.

Fitness, five days, five workouts, though this week was quite a drag. We were doing benchmarks, where we test our progress over the year, and I improved my numbers so I guess that’s a win. Still I’m happy to have a rest day tomorrow.

And that’s me. How was your week?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Mistaken Identity

It’s ten word story time! Using the photo above, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words.

I actually intended to use a different photo this week, but this one just caught my attention.

Here’s mine:

Common misconception: all time travel in London happens via TARDIS.

#WednesdayWisdom: Now

Standard

I’ve always thought the beauty and the interesting bits were in our differences. I’m fascinated by the nuance of lives different from mine; it’s one of the reasons I so love to travel.

Now those differences are used as handholds to tear us apart, to isolate us, to break us into smaller chunks much easier for authoritarian regimes to swallow. Make us each independently concerned for our very survival.

Crowbar the fissures.

Our days have been quite chilling up until now, but I fear worse days ahead. So this is what I ask of you.

Remember that there are others also fearing for their futures, for their safety. Remember that differences are not a marker of competition but of humanity expressed in another way.

Remember we owe one another our support. Remember we need to see the obstacles ahead, not only our own, but those faced by others as well.

Or those obstacles will take root, broaden, and imprison us all.

Take the time to let someone else know you see them today. Hope your day goes well.

#TuesdayThoughts: Yep

Standard

Is today another two-cup of coffee day?

Probably.

How do I feel about that?

Ask me later when I’m trying to go to sleep.

Today there’s an odd golden light through mist or rain, not sure which. It looks a bit like sunset, though it’s only 10:30 in the morning. But time’s been weird, so who really knows.

And yes, I have that other cup of coffee now. Sitting right there beside me. Doing its thing.

At least today I feel more mellow than draggy. Not extra-perky, not by any stretch of the imagination, but at least conscious in this reality.

Which is about all anyone could ask for, really.

So I’m taking my coffee and doing Tuesday. Have a great day.

#MondayThoughts: Dragging

Standard

I am just not in gear today. I have another cup of coffee going, there was never an “if” with it, and I’m trying to get myself in motion.

My shirt was on backwards this morning, to give you an idea.

The weekend was great, busy and fun, and the truth is I ate all the things I wanted to eat. Whether that means I’m on my way to a headache I guess only time will tell.

Though at least the coffee seems to be kicking in. Thank goodness for that.

It’s bright and sunny after a partially rainy weekend. Yesterday started with bold thunderstorms, and it seemed impossible that the Air & Water Show would happen. But it did. I didn’t see much, I was too far away from the lakefront, but the planes buzzed overhead now and then anyway.

Confession time. I had a little bit of chocolate with the second cup of coffee and I think that’s the miracle worker.

Well I’m off to try to climb the mountain of Monday. Have a wonderful day.
