Two things that I really wanted to happen this week didn’t happen. 1–I didn’t sit down and outline my next novel and 2–I didn’t take part in day in the life. The fact that both these things didn’t happen won’t kill me but it does disappoint me. A girlfriend recently told me that I’m “military-like” — meaning, I set a deadline, a goal, etc, and I complete it. I laughed when she said that because, honestly, I’m the queen of setting deadlines and sitting back as they whoosh on by. But I know what she was referring to (me finishing my novel before my October 15th deadline). So, in this case, yeah, I guess she’s right.
This coming week I’m going to schedule time to outline. And I’m going to get it done. And I’ll do a day in the life, too.
I wish I didn’t have such a bad memory, because sometimes my kid says the funniest things and I can’t write them down (like when I’m driving). On Friday he told me, “sometimes grandpa kisses me and these sharp things prick me, like his moo-stash” and then he scrunched up his face and wiggled his fingers over top of his lips. Kids really do say the craziest things.
I’ve never been great when it comes to makeup. I’ve stuck with the basics for a long time–under eye concealer, mascara, bronzer and a little eyebrow filler if the mood strikes me. I’ve been trying to step outside of my comfort zone and try some new things. I bought this yesterday, which I’m excited to try out.
