morning babble / Monday 08-02-21
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much.
Back home but I’ll be back at the Jersey Shore very, very soon. Today though – quick day trip with my family to the Delaware Beaches Anyway. I ran. #214 of 5K runs.
Last night, I also took a regular shower! It was a hot one and I took my good sweet time!
And yes . . . there’s a new calendar up . . . which means a new goal. I need to credit Jon Acuff for helping me with this goal. I was listening to one of his recent podcasts and basically came up with the writing goal for the month of 15,000 words for my book. I’ll track it with Monday & Friday tally updates. I currently resides at 1,566. I have a ways to go!
This also helped with the goal idea. I actually tried this several years ago: “National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel during the thirty days of November. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel.”
