Writing 101, Day Nineteen: Don’t Stop the Rockin’
On this free writing day, remember the words of author Anne Lamott: “I don’t think you have time to waste not writing because you are afraid you won’t be good at it.”
Calgon or Jack in the Black or Margarita or something …. take me away. This has been the proverbial week from hell(o). I’ve been sick all week and trying to finish two classes for school. Had two papers to write and got to study for final exam. Finally gave up and withdrew from a class that was starting this week so I can get over this crap that usually takes a month to get back to normal.
Been trying to mow the “back 40 acres” for the last couple of days but it keeps interrupting me with rain and more rain. Looks like a pasture for sure now, going to need a bush hog this time I think. Finally got some of it mowed yesterday for about 3 ½ hours and today it’s coming a flood again. Mr. Weatherman what’s up? .
Got to find a laugh somewhere in all this. Busy with work on top of that, this part time freelance stuff is worse that full time sometimes but the others make up for it in the long run. If it didn’t I would never have been able to start writing again. Looks like this weekend has ended in a bust as far as getting anything done outside today. We’ve been taking down a building to move to where we live, was going to try to finish that today but too much rain going on. Going to be hot this next week for the 4th of July looks like, however even the pool is not cooperating with me. It has a leak, so had to drain it and try to get it patched first of the week so it will be ready for the weekend. You would think a pool would last more than a couple of weeks before springing a leak for the price we paid for it. Grandkids had a blast playing in it, especially the 2 ½ year old, so it’s been worth it.
