Reviewing the Old

I started rereading what I had wrote last year...7 decent chapters. Now, how do I get the rest out of my head. And to boot, NOW I have another story in my head. Cripes. Dexter (the dog) and I are currently rereading chapter 5-7 while watching Weeds. I think I need character descriptions and a family tree next. That will be my next step for this book. I'll write some notes on the other idea and set it aside for now unless it starts burning holes in my brain.

On a side note, I ran 5k was great. I'm really starting to loooooove running.

Fresh Start

Today I deleted every old post from my blog. Why? I want to stop dwelling on what I haven't done and stop making excuses for not doing. Today I will do. I start by reviewing the seven chapters to my book that I wrote last year before I became pregnant. My brain is fresh and ready to go so I need to read what I have and decide if my initial game plan is good or if I need to modify. Many ideas have been popping up during my morning runs...I'm excited to dive in.


Yesterday I turned 33. It was a good birthday, but I'll have to say the past year has been a complete whirlwind. I've been so caught up in my job, my children, my marriage, and just trying to get things done that I've had little time to focus on being creative. Recently I started running again and I've really enjoyed how it's helped me think deeply. Ideas for writing have been swirling in my head. This week I get back into my writing. This week I will also be changing a lot of this blog. I hope you enjoy the ride...
