Since launching my Tarot Thursday project where I’ve been exploring the basic meanings of the tarot cards to hopefully give context to my writing challenges and prompts, I haven’t done much posting in the way of personal events. Continue reading
My outline has been coming along slowly. Very slowly. I’ve deleted it and started over multiple times now. Stared at the screen with nothing for hours at a time. About mid week I reached a point where I felt like I had hit a wall and was getting no where.
I was worried that I wouldn’t hit the 50k mark before the end of the month this year, but I managed to squeeze it in with two days to spare!
Just a long annoying day and I still need to get my writing in.
Thank you, Leslie, for suggesting that I drop the “What I Would Have Done Differently” portion of this format. I completely agree that I shouldn’t be feeding into any maladaptive perfectionism that will only bring me down at the end of the day. Instead, I’ll try to focus on the things I’m grateful for. A boost in positivity can’t be a bad thing.
I’m already wondering whether or not I like this format. It feels clinical – like my mood trackers. I acknowledge that I should be assessing my day every day, but I wish it had a more organic feel to it. Maybe I just feel that way tonight because I didn’t really do anything all day so ordinarily I wouldn’t be posting at all, so there is that advantage to this format.
Thought it would be a good idea to set up a structured template for myself to use to go over and assess my day with. First half of the day was quiet with way too much puttering about, rest of the day was lots of running around and herding children. I think it’s easier to herd cats with a spray bottle.
Little Bear had a med clinic appointment yesterday. No med changes were made other than being told that I can go back to using Benadryl as a sleep aid for him. Which is what I did since without it he’s up until 2am or so.
I’m so proud of myself. It’s very satisfying for me when things start to click in my head and come together. I still need lots of progress and I have a long ways to go, but I feel like I finally have my foot in the door with how all this works.
Incidently, today is Haven Hearth’s online anniversary.

Oh yes… so much done. Too bad I didn’t make heavy use of Yahoo! Calendar at this point or I might have had more to archive.
