Just Write Sunday (on Monday)

I woke up yesterday resolute on productivity. I will write, I will create, I thought. Eh, I cleaned and organized and napped–which I needed because the flu has not been kind to me, but I did not write and I did not create. Boo. So here I am a day late with my requisite “Just Write” warm up post for the week.

This week in my head, I am juggling major decisions. One of my fur-kids has…I believe, suffered some kind of psychotic break. I know how this all reads, but trust me, as it involves violent behavior, what I perceive to be paranoid delusions, and feces. I am not in a good place about it at all, but I’m weighing the options and trying to come up with the most humane solution. Good thoughts are needed.

There appears to be a theme of transitioning happening for me. I have some TBA business and personal development plans underway which involve [low squeal] jewelry, and a concerted effort to push “The First 52” project along [insane giddy squeal]. The Universe has been coming through in big ways and making these transitions smoother, in turn decreasing my reservations. I believe in both projects wholly, but an inherent belief in my awesome is just part of the puzzle. Y’know, I still gotta feed the cats!

This week at the Hive, I am excited! The man will be home for a week in just 15 days and I’m looking forward to the together time. It’s been just a little over a month since we last saw each other when I visited NYC. You’d be amazed by how much growth and change occurs in seemingly short periods of time during a family’s infancy. So, it’ll be fantastic to have him home for some centering and reflection before the next phase. I’ll also be using the time to get us both on the same page about, “The First 52” project and privacy. “…writers are always selling someone out.” Said, the incredible Joan Didion. While this may be true, I’d like to do so with his stamp–however tenuous– of approval. That being said, you should soon start to see posts that contain content from the project. Be on the lookout, as I will be seeking your input.

Overall, I’m starting the week off in a good place. I’m focused, I’m organized, I’m happy. [Pauses for a silent moment of gratitude.] Now, it’s time to get movin’. What are you working on, or working towards working on, this week?


Peace and a plan


  1. So happy to see you updating the blog! I am sending warm thoughts your way and hope you come to a decision about what you will do about your fur baby. They are our family, our children. Also, best wishes to you on your business venture and enjoy your “Boo time”! 😉
