Hey, did you know that you can get in free to Disneyland on your birthday in 2009? Those of you with November and December birthdays just need to register for your free pass and they will send you a voucher to print and take along on your visit. Coolio! I wouldn’t mind going there to celebrate my birthday in December! [Update January 30, 2013: This offer is no longer valid through Disneyland]
This has been a rough week, but something remarkable happened to me yesterday. I received a jar of love in the mail! It was full of paper hearts, each one holding a special handwritten message. The gift made me both laugh and cry. It certainly helped me through the tail end of this crazy week. Thank you, Claudia. Be sure to visit her Love Jars Facebook page to see her beautiful work.
My husband has been away on business. Without his help to cart the kids to their extra extra-curricular activities (no, that extra extra wasn’t a typo), along with more homework than their usual amount, I’ve fallen a bit behind in my NaNaWriMo project.
((chanting to myself)) I can still catch up. I can still catch up. I can still catch up.
While I was having doubts about my story yesterday, I reminded myself that this is not the time to be questioning my story line or doing major edits. All of that will come later. Like for instance next March during National Novel Editing Month.
In the meantime, if I could only pull myself away from looking at silly cat pictures on the Internet, I might have more time to write. My characters may put me somewhere I never expected, like in Yarnia.
On another note, a good pen is hard to find … and good writers are only as good as the pens they use. Okay, well, maybe this isn’t true anymore since many writers now use computers. However, I have always treasured a good pen.
Anyway, check out this pen, which makes me salivate:
Cross Townsend, Medalist, Selectip Rolling Ball Pen, In Polished Chrome and 23 Karat Gold Plate (505)
However, if that is beyond your budget, here is something more affordable:
Pilot G2 Fine Point Rolling Ball Blue Gel Ink Pens, 2-Pack (31032)
There is no effort involved in writing with the ideal pen. Maybe that’s something I could use right now. Or maybe I could just stop messing around and get back to work.
