The Joy


Great weekend.
Fantastic weekend.
Stupendous weekend.
Why?
Because I got a ton of editing/writing done. And it felt terrific.

I definitely felt the joy of writing this weekend.
Are you feeling the joy right now? If so, tell me about it. If not, you can share that, too.

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
