It’s my birthday, and my Facebook wall has exploded with kind wishes. Many were from friends I know in person, but many more were from strangers who have become friends. And I’m smiling. It’s that kind of day.
But somewhere in my brain, Engage must have found a home. Because I’ve been doing that. Connecting with people. Choosing to be an encourager. Staying at it with my novel, even in small increments. Even when I’m out of ideas.
And Engage is bearing fruit. Today I…
- Started a Facebook group for former students who still have the itch to write (thus fulfilling a resolution I made in ICU–how’s that for membership appeal?)
- Had my cover design order confirmed
- Began edits suggested by my genius beta reader
- Replied to every person who wished me Happy Birthday
A lovely day indeed. My middle son, who is headed to camp to be a counselor, took me out for breakfast. And tonight, why, I’m going out for dinner with the rest of the family. Yes! What is it about food that someone else has cooked?
My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance. ~Erma Bombeck
