And it’s the first blog I’ve made since the awesome and well-needed retreat with the majority of the lovely ladies on here. What a week!!!! It’s a bummer I’m already counting down the days until next year. I wish I could see this women far more often.
But I digress. This week’s topic is… Brain Dump. Which I guess translates into… whatever is on my mind these days. And to this I say… WHAT THE HELL ISN’T ON MY MIND THESE DAYS?
Okay, so there are a couple of major things.
First… work. Which means writing. Yeah, I think about covers but it’s not the same for some reason.
Over the course of the retreat, a couple of new opportunities arose. Now, these are super secret (LOL… soon, I swear) but I’m totally stoked about these projects. And it’s definitely got me motivated in the writing department again. I”m currently working on a few books that I hope to get out the latter part of this year… then I’m turning my sights to next year. And I’m excited that I’ve made a plan of sorts. An outline so that I can take control and finally get it all straight in my head. So… writing is definitely on my mind.
Okay, why is Montana on my mind? (oh, so close to Georgia on my mind, lol) A couple of weeks ago, I decided to man up or shut up. And I signed up for my first Ultrathon. It’s called Le Grizz and it’s a 50 mile race in the upper reaches of Montana. I’ve never really done a lot of running races. I’ve participated in a number of Adventure Races and a 7 day Mountain bike race, but I haven’t even done a Marathon. However… I believe in going big or going home. Which means a huge portion of my week is dedicated to training… some days more than others. And I’m going to kick this thing…
I’d like to say there’s a third, but… it’s the regular stuff. Lack of a love life, worrying about kids going forth in the world, money, work, if I’m truly ready for the coming apocalypse 🙂 So… ordinary stuff.
Now check out the other ladies. I have this odd feeling that I approached this from a different angle. That there was more to it, lol. so…
