Raking, Writing and Arithmetic

It's November. Need I say more?

Raking: Yes, you can have 7 inches of leaves in your front yard, it turns out. And the two hour power outage today was the perfect time to get out there and rake it up. I can't write if there's no power, right? Well, technically I could have used my laptop battery. But when I realized I was going to have to rake the inside of my house soon, I decided today was the day.

Writing: When I'm not writing, I'm thinking about writing, feeling guilty for not writing or planning my next space of time when I will get to write.

Arithmetic: Goal: 4 pages a day, at least 5 days a week. Making up for lost time due to parent/teacher conferences, babysitting kids, raking leaves and other necessary-for-living obligations allowed. That means writing ten pages at least one of the days of the week.
I will write 80 pages before November is over. I will.

If I say it enough times, then it will happen...right?

Seriously. What's not to love about November?

Okay, getting back to work now...

You're incredible, Laura. How do you do it all? You're a great mom, a dancer, a wife, and a writer. I wish I were more like you.
