I have to laugh. Talk about something hitting home.
I have several story ideas, that as soon as they pop into my brain, I immediately write them down.
Everyone I talk to tells me to just jump in and do it. Yet, I don’t no matter how much I should.
I could come up with a million excuses, or a better way to say it would be reasons. Let’s see. We took guardianship of our niece two and a half years ago. I’ve been having hip pain that no one knows what’s the cause. I had to quit my job. The Army is moved us to Alaska five months ago. I homeschool my niece. I’m sure there are others but those are just off the top of my head.
Sometimes I think, “What’s wrong with me?” The plain simple truth is I haven’t been motivated at all. So how do I change the path, the course, I’m on. I have to just jump in (or off) and do it.
Today an idea hit me. I wanted to do my writing for my topics while walking on the treadmill. I have a pink journal I use for just this purpose. However, trying to do it while walking just didn’t work that well. Then an idea popped into my head. Maybe there’s an app for the Kindle I could use while walking. Sure enough they had a notepad. I love it and this is already my sixth one. I mean, how kewl is that. I’ve already walked over 5 miles, which of course helps my hips, but I’ve actually started writing. I feel all warm and fuzzy. This has been a great jump off.
