I can’t believe April is over…can YOU??? Well, May is upon us – time for flowers, warm weather and a hint of summer. Yep, everything I love.
To start off the awesomeness that is May, I am participating in the newest brain child of Elana Johnson’s – the Spreading the Awesome tribute to fantastic books deserving of “10-stars” or more on May 3rd. This is an EPIC tribute to the authors we love. Be sure to stop by and check it out. I’ll be giving away some books (yes, I said books plural). For a look at the list of bloggers participating, click here.
But that isn’t all…I am also hosting a contest in May to celebrate…well, just to celebrate feeling better, I guess. More on that later! But it involves commenting, signing up for a newsletter, and just being you!
I’m also giving away awards…tons. I have received a few of late and it’s time to spread the love, right?
Okay – now for the actual post for today..training (or something like that).
I went to the Dr. yesterday (unrelated to all things anemic!) – a followup on a problem I’ve ben having with my knee. The appointment was good (my knee is healed), sad (I need to chill on the running and take up cycling instead), and interesting. The Dr and I were talking about the reality that I have a few pounds to lose (maybe more than a “few” pounds). He said to thinking of it as “training” for something, not losing weight.
Of course, my mind went straight to writing…and the fact that if you are serious about your craft you find a way to write everyday (My grandfather used to say “writer’s write – daily.”). But, doing anything regularly can make it a chore…something less than inspiring.
But, when I think of it as training for something…when I set little goals that I can measure – a word count, a contest I want to enter – this becomes a tad easier for me.
So, I am “training” to be a writer. Not sure what my first goal is…probably a time frame regarding my current WiP…either way, I am “In TRAINING!” (Think I need a t-shirt or something…)
What about you? What are you in training for?
