Letters and Other Writings...

So far, I've written a letter every day for the new year...ok, so it's only been 4 days. But 4 letters have been penned by me and mailed. They're really letters of gratitude so far, and it really feels good to acknowledge in others.

I've also been working on the novel. I made a new rule for myself--I do not get to bring work home except on Thursday nights. I will no longer drown myself in paperwork. I'm making sure it gets down at work. It's a challenge, but I think it's beneficial for me and my other pursuits as well as being wonderful for creating additional family time.

I am working on chapter 10 at this point. I'm trying to get the backbone of this book down as quickly as possible and then I think I'll go back and just edit it like mad. My loosely fitting goal is to have the first draft done by mid-February. Cross those fingers!
