These are all the items I took with me when Haris was going to lay down to take a nap. My intentions were to read each book for 20 minutes, journal for 10 minutes or so, work on a monologue, reassess my goals and plan, answer 2 emails, and read 3 others. Easy enough.
How much do you have?
And I got a quarter and some pennies. My mother in law, Momma T, was in town and came to spend some time with Haris, so I could go have some time for myself to write and do whatever.
This past week I entered a short story writing competition! Yay! Go Court go! The story had to be 1500 words or less. And there were a few challenges I hadn’t expected.
. . . or at least I thought I did.
To get to work by 8:00am the latest I can wake up is 6:15am, to leave the house by 7:15am. We live 12 miles from where I work, but this is LA, I’ll need 40 – 45 minutes to be on time. Well last week . . .
The first full week of January 2016 is off and running, and occasionally I’m still writing 2015 on things. Lol! Monday was efficient and productive. I was laser focused, task and time oriented! I mean I felt like I was killing it. Surprised and praising God for new changes and discipline; however, I heard that small voice saying too much, slow down. And if you didn’t know, Tuesday comes after Monday.
Confession time, I had an attitude in class on Monday, and not the good kind. Acting class is an environment for creativity, openness, play, supporting one another in storytelling and vulnerability.
I like to do, what I want to do, when I want to do it. Two of my peers were performing, after their first take of doing the scene. I couldn’t hear them too well, and decided, I have this time, I’ll journal, I’ve been wanting to do that for a while. Off to journal town I go.
