Until tomorrow

I was reminded today why I'm here. It was timely. In trying to figure out the next step, I've been doubting everything lately, wondering what I'm doing here: alternately pushing myself to get things done, then resigning myself to defeat when I fail.

But after exhausting all avenues of distraction today - playing scrabble on facebook, chatting with friends, driving around aimlessly for a while - I actually wrote. A lot. A new story that's about a lot of things - maybe too many - that has (at least for this afternoon) made me remember why I'm here and why it is the right place for me. At least for now.

Hi Nell,

Really enjoyed reading your post.
And can totally identify.
Glad to hear that you transitioned into a highly productive day!

Yay! I'm so proud of you. Now I just have to get off my ass and do the same...

And look at me! I'm leaving a comment on a blog. Ooh.

The ebb and flow. I'm completely unproductive and unmotivated and blue today. But maybe tomorrow?

You wear so many hats, Nell. And maintain it all with such class and style.
