02.19.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: Today has been another busy day. Writing. Prepping. Organizing. I even managed to read some emails, read posts from challenges, and watched a Film Noir for research for next month’s story line. All of this, plus I chatted with my friend Lisa on the phone for nearly 2 hours. *phew* it has been a busy day and now my back is aching. Time for bed and some Reiki.

What I learned today: I have a sinking feeling that the plans my friend Lisa and I have made for the upcoming months will fall through. She knows how busy I am this year with writing and I am *trying* my best to schedule in time to spend with her. This will mean doubling up some days on work, but for me, it is worth it. For her, I am not so sure. She is still iffy about things and the more I pressed her to set dates so I could schedule and plan ahead, the more hesitant she became. This is the same issue we had last year and part of what caused us to have a 6 month falling out. I really hope she doesn’t make me regret renewing our friendship.

What I am most proud of today: Despite the sinking feeling of regret, I kept my cool. I will let the cards play out and see where things lead.

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Celebrate the Small Things – 02.19.16

Celebrate blog hop

Today I am celebrating…

I’ve already begun scheduling some of my posts for the A2Z Challenge in April. I am doing two blogs this year. Here at As the Fates Would Have It and over at Promptly Written. The ones here, I am able to schedule ahead of time. The ones over at Promptly Written will be spontaneous and written on the day of each challenge day. I am excited. The challenge is only 40 days away! Hard to believe it is that close to April already.

I’ve also begun writing new poems for a chapbook of poetry that I hope to publish or enter into a contest next year. This is something that I had hoped to have finished by this year, but it never happened. This year I am determined that it will be finished!

And finally, I am celebrating my returned health. Shortly after I posted last week’s Celebrate the Small Things , I went out shopping and brought back a nasty little bugger of a cold. It lingered almost all week, but since yesterday, I have been feeling back to my old self again.


Each Friday, I join Lexa Cain and friends for a weekly blog-hop called Celebrate the Small Things, where we celebrate all of those small moments from the week before.

The wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
