Day 86: Tucked Away in My Magical Writing Haven

Finally, sitting here in front of my laptop.  Nice and warm, new writing partner lying on the desk on top of an SWW page that I was working on (see photo), my Paddywax Edgar Allan Poe candle (absinthe, cardamom, and sandalwood scented) burning to inspire me, and I am inspired.  I want to spend the majority of the next 3 days writing and making some plans for 2019.  I want to put down in writing what I want to make happen next year but I want to think it through so that I don’t underestimate my ability to make things happen nor do I want to make it so far reaching that I’ll give up.  But I do want to have to reach to make them happen because there’s no growth or sense of accomplishment otherwise.  I also don’t want them to be amorphous.  I want them to be well defined but not so rigidly that if need be they can’t be expanded upon.  I don’t need or want my plans to be perfect, I just need them to be realistic and well thought out.  I don’t want to sabotage myself.  I think that I’ve spent my entire life doing that so this time, I am going to be sure about it all before I get started working toward my goals for the new year.  2019 is not going to be the year of the dreamer or quitter.  It is going to be the year of the doer.  And you get to come along for the ride!  Well, I got a late start on the post thanks to my new writing partner so if I want to get done before midnight to keep my daily streak going, I need to do it now.  Laundry’s almost done and so am I for the night.  So, with 5 minutes to spare, I’m hitting the publish button.  See you tomorrow.
