Good Morning! Hope today finds you happy and healthy...and offers you a fabulous story to read, write, and enjoy!
It's Saturday - a day off for many - but not for this Chickie. I finish up my work week tomorrow afternoon. Now, I suppose you all are wondering why I would title a post *Pleased As Punch* and then babble on about work...(and rightly so!) but the truth is, I enjoy my job! Add in a mix of terrific co-workers with a fantastic sense of dark humor...and *VOILA*. Heading in to work becomes a treat. (although the public can be...(ahem!) ...well, enough said about that!
Still, the reason for my cat-like smile this sunny morning (Finally! Egads! It's been raining and dreary far too long!) is something entirely other. Last evening as I propped in my bed with the newspaper...lightening struck. Okay, Okay...not literally (Thank Goodness!) but in the *SHINY-NEW-IDEA* sort of strike! Last week, I shared my utter lack of progress and creativity on two projects I'd attempted. It left me a little down to be honest. That elusive *fire* ...well, eluded me. Busy and stressful circumstances left no room for all-things-romantic to smolder and ignite. Life has a way of settling down. You adapt. You accept. You grow. I decided to set a few small goals - one being that I would write a little every day - no matter what. Another was to focus on *my genre*, historical romance. And so, here I sit, pleased as punch.
An entire story premise page has been scribbled down into a new notebook. Sticky tabs mark character outlines. I began my heroine's profile packet. I feel eager and excited about writing in a way I've missed.
It's a good morning.
