Home. It's where your story begins...
Spring is the best time of the year to own a home. I love sweeping off the porch, setting out cushions on my wrought iron furniture, uncovering the pool, and listening to the birds outside my windows.
Birds always seem to be happy creatures, don't they? Singing endless lyrics. Flying in groups with their peeps. Chillin' on poles. (Today I caught myself missing Hawk. Hawk used to sit on the power lines as I drove by. Sometimes he'd fly out in front of me as if trying to tell me something. Unfortunately, I just realized I hadn't seen him since a tornado hit his prime hunting ground. Was he killed or driven away? I can't be sure and it makes me sad.)
As with every beginning, there is a middle and an end. Such is the way of all things, especially the calendar year. I'm barely able to believe 2012 is almost half-way over. It just seems like yesterday the new year began and I planned my goals out for the year. When I look back on what I've accomplished so far, I see boons and pitfalls, but I KNOW I'm making strides. It's all in perception, right?
Recently, I entered two books in one contest and one in another. I sent out some queries and plotted a new book, one I plan to write during a Fast Draft challenge beginning in two days. I'm also THIS close to finishing my current WIP.
And so, though I appear to be clanking my cymbols and bouncing along, I've pondered the energizer bunny. How cool would it be to have that kind of energy, to hop, hop, hop from one project to the next, getting them all done in a timely manner?
Are you on track for the year? How are your energy levels and if you were the energizer bunny, what would you do with your time?
