Lucky 13? Maybe...
Yesterday should have been one of those days that if I got in a thousand words, I would have been happy.
My wife was to come home late, so I had to deal with my little monkeys. Homework, get them to bathe, prepare dinner, and assure that they don't dismember each other in the span of the night.
With the potential outcome of the future already pre-determined, I had given up on real productivity. But something happened.
The kids were on the ball with their homework. They bathed and changed at the speed of light. Dinner was a hit. We were done by just past 6 PM. They were fed, clean, and in their PJs.
I popped in a DVD in the home office (Shorts, a Robert Rodriguez movie). So as they watched, I wrote. And wrote. Took a couple of small breaks to make pop corn, but I kept on writing and the words kept rolling out.
By 11 PM, my head spinning, I posted this on Facebook...
Day 13's total: 7,944
So maybe I was off on my math, but as you can see, not a bad night given that I had assumed the day would be a total loss.
You never know when you'll have these types of days. I could have written it off. But I chose to try. I chose to write.
Fight the good fight!
