So happy! I can't believe it!

April 23rd, 2010 at 09:19 pm

I FINALLY started my novel. I am 7000 words in and it's going just fine. Now I am kicking myself for waiting so long to do this. Maybe something about turning 35 flipped on the now or never switch.

It's been on my to-do list for a long time, and considering I'm a journalist and I write for a living, you'd think it would have been easy for me to do. But, there is always a reason not to. It's now or never.

I am tired, though. I stay up late until 1 or so writing, because that's the only time I get after kids are in bed and my "real for money" work is done.

I'm doing well on other goals as well. We've almost met saving for the year, though that may change as we are getting quotes for a new patio in back and a swingset for the boys. I managed to put something in my IRA and more into the boys' college funds.

    Congratulations! I hope it continues to go well. The fact that it is already may just mean the timing was meant to be.

    Hope it works out great! But yeah, I'm curious what it's roughly about as well.

    Keep writing! It leads others to want to do their "thing" as well. I'm looking at a possible doctoral dissertation all of a sudden, and thinking that a PhD might be just the academic insurance I'm looking for to keep my mind in the game and my future prospects good... best of luck and keep it up.
