Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
|Last week was an interesting week (for an explanation of that see "Sunday Review: An Interesting Beginning to a New Week" in "Snow Melt" ) and this week is going to be even more interesting, but at least my life isn't boring. I managed to accomplish last weeks goals "Invalid Entry" ; however, I'm not that sure about how I will do on this weeks goals. The house closes on Tuesday, November 12, so I have to do a lot of packing, which I should have done a month ago; however, there is no use shoulding on myself. This week I need to focus on four things (1) my NaNoWriMo novel ("Midnight in Suburbia" ), (2) packing, (3) posting responses to the "30-Day Blogging Challenge" in "Snow Melt" , and (4) reviewing. If I get a chance to respond to the prompts from "Blogging Circle of Friends Prompt Forum" or enter a contest then it's possible I could do that, but I'm not putting those as my goals because of the moving and packing issue.
On Saturday, November 9, I made my first entry in "Memories of Snow" in response ("November Memoir: These are some of my favorite things" ) to one of the November prompts from "Invalid Item" . There is another November prompt that I would like to respond to, but I'm going to wait until next week to consider it. I may change my mind depending on how much I get packed this week. I would like to find a place and be out of this house on or before November 19, but that may not be possible. I can only leave that up to the will of God, I have to focus on packing and finding a place to live.
These are my goals for November 11-15, which I will post on "Weekly Goals" tomorrow sometime. Since I live in Las Vegas and am working on Pacific Standard Time, I may post those goals after 9:00 pm, which is 12:00 midnight writing.com time.
1. Finish packing so that I can move.
2. Write 1,667 words each day on "Midnight in Suburbia" .
3. Respond to the "30-Day Blogging Challenge" blog prompts.
4. Review at least 15 items during the week of November 11-15.
5. Find a place to move.
The weird thing is that I'm not worried about finding a place to move. Perhaps I should be worried, but I'm not. In fact, I'm not worried about too much of anything at the moment. This may change as the day wears on, especially if I become depressed, but right now I'm not worried.
