“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has been before.” —Albert Einstein
I wrote 3295 words this morning. I got up at 6am and sat writing until noon. I didn’t move except to refill my coffee and to use the bathroom. I decided that I better move around some I worked on taking down Halloween and putting up Thanksgiving. It’s disappointing to me how few decorations there are.
Outside the house, all signs of Halloween have disappeared for another year. Hopefully, we will be living somewhere new by the time Halloween rolls around again. I’m looking forward to next the adventure. I put the scarecrows and the turkey by the front door. I hung a turkey on the storm door. The living room is packed up but that’s as far as I went today.
I decided to have raw veggies, some pepperoni and a cup of tea for dinner and work on the edits Raz sent back. I finished that and decided to work on some more writing. I lost all track of time, missed Grey’s Anatomy again. 😦 but I did churn out 3000 more words.
I haven’t re-read what I wrote yet. I’m happy with calling it a night. I’ll edit tomorrow. I just want to be ahead so I can some quality time with my husband.
I even started a crazy poem today that I’m going to use in my story Death and I
I toss another swig back
feel my lips pucker and eyes bulge.
I know there’s mascara streaks
running down my face.
It hardly matters now.
I wish I’d known love
was cruel before
It played me like a fool.
I’m always wiser
when it’s too late.
So liquor is my new love of choice
I drink your memory away
My friends warn me
drinking is a problem
that it will be the death of me.
Will that even matter?
who knew salvation’s possible
a sip at a time
til bottle’s empty.©
