Every week I come up with a new excuse for not working on my so-called work-in-progress. Let’s be honest, it’s work-not-progressing. I was using the excuse that I’m busy working on other things, but I’m not actually working on other things except for the daily poem. Not this past week anyway. I may have used the excuse that my daughter is in town, and I’ve been spending some time with her. But come on, not that much time. I somehow found time to brush up on my German for no reason at all.
So, okay. I am making a public commitment right now: this week I will re-read what I’ve already written on the WIP, and write SOMETHING. Move it forward as much as I am able. And I will start today.
p.s. I am keeping my commitment to walk at least twenty minutes five days a week. Most days I walk at least twice that much, but that is my commitment, and so far, so good! I started February 12th.
