Writing and Monday

Despite the long drive to and fro Pennsylvania this weekend, I spent the work day refreshed and smiling. This probably has something to do with the fact that I started "Midsummer Night's Dream" today with my Language Arts classes: I look forward to this unit all year!

I'm proud to report the my YA modern fantasy climbed above 34K words this evening, as I met my thousand words goal for the seventh night in a row. It's a really good feeling to be focused on this book, even if I haven't been able to focus so much on yoga or doing the dishes in the past week. Oops.

I was reminded again of how fortunate I am to make my home in North Carolina. It was a beautiful day today, despite the pollen count, and it was warm enough that I needed to change into shorts for our evening walk. When I talked to my grandmother this afternoon (she's still back in Michigan), she talked about storms, clouds, and cold weather. I am so thankful to live where I do!

If the rest of the week continues in this mode, I think it will be really good. It's amazing what a change of perspective (and a change in the weather) can do!
