Currently // June 2016

We’ve come to the end of the month again and as always I like to share with you all that is going on with me, all the changes I have made, and what I am looking forward to. This is what I am currently:

Writing a few bits and pieces—just ideas mostly—of what I hope will one day be my first novel. Eek!

Planning a camping trip for the weekend of the 8th. It will be the first time I bring my puppy into the great outdoors. I’m worried she won’t mind her manners, and we’ll have to cut the trip short. Cross your fingers and wish us luck.

Making up a new daily to do list. One that will lead me to the goals that are important to me know and follow the philosophy of progress not perfection with items such as “Spend 15 minutes writing flash fiction.” or “Spend 10 minutes working on a drawing.”

Thinking about blog design, email design, and design in print. I’m not good with things like choosing colors, or fonts, or images, but I’m getting to a point where I need to start incorporating these concepts into my “personal branding”, whatever that is.

Reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, still. I will finish it in July!

Watching a series on HBO called The Leftovers. The show “takes place three years after a global event called the “Sudden Departure,” the inexplicable, simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, 2% of the world’s population, on October 14, 2011″ and follows the lives of people who were left behind.

Feeling super excited about my goals for next month. I have never made anything that I could sell before, it’s scary and, well, exciting!

Needing to spend more time writing in quiet places instead of on the couch while the TV is playing in the background. TV is not good for productivity at all. Shocking I know. The plan is to start setting aside four hours or so every Saturday to write in my “Creativity Room.” A place in my house where TV is not allowed!

Loving the sweet gingery taste of Moscow Mules. I had one for the first time last month, and it was so delicious I can’t believe everyone can not drink them all day, every day.

Hating this joke of an election. Seeing Trumps face on the news every day and hearing his hate speech is beginning to get real nauseating. Election day can not come and go fast enough!

Hoping that everything I am doing, and want to do, are things that will lead me into the kind of future I want. One where it won’t be so hard to find time to do all the things I love.
