Good Start to a Great Month!

I think I got off to a very good start this morning. Check the list below and decide for yourselves.

This morning, I…

Got up (that’s always helpful…)

Went downstairs, utterly surprised that it was almost nine and no one was up (strange, because I usually get up LAST… by far)

Loaded the dishwasher and washed a pot from making food for a fellowship meal at our church yesterday (insanely fun, especially since we went over to a friends’ house and the parents all left. See, if I’d known that they were going to see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Jackie Evancho, I would have begged to go…)

Took my medicine (including the nasty grapefruit seed extract… nastiness in liquid form!)

Heated myself up some oatmeal (mixed with craisins and almond slivers… yuuuum!)

Ran upstairs and cleaned up my room to have a tidy workplace (which I think is invaluable in inspiring this often-writer’s-blocked-writer…)

Wrote a movie review for a blog I follow (hint: it has nothing to do with writing and everything to do with a hero I greatly love)

Made yet another Sir Percy backdrop for my laptop (I’m thinking of doing one Les Miz-themed for this Les Miz-themed writing intensive I’m doing)

Changed from my pajamas into jeans and my Les Miz t-shirt (Love, love, love…)

Made some Hobbit Tea – Bilbo Baggins Breakfast Blend (I only take out my special teas about once or twice a year… I told myself this was a special occasion!)

Got myself a half-cup of chocolate chips (for additional motivation…)

Ran back upstairs and started listening to The High Kings (‘Low lie the fields of Athenry…’)

Now, here I sit in my room, listening to ‘One Day More!’ while drinking Hobbit Tea in my sister’s One Day More! coffee mug, wearing my Les Miz shirt and my Scarlet Pimpernel ring.

Yes, I believe I’ve gotten off to a good start. I just hope I’m able to end like this, too. : )



Later… That was about three hours ago. Since then, I have written a very extensive document on each of my main characters (including Unknown Friend, who I’ve named Hayden Bronson – yahoo!), finished my Hobbit Tea, and have since felt very inspired.

Oh, yeah… and written the first – and highly important – scene.

Total word count: 1,736. WAHOO!
