A Bit of Positive

It’s funny how I can go to sleep happy and looking forward to the next day but when I wake up I have no positive going on.  Part of it is all the latest in the news.  I think I wake up and my subconscious is like, “How bad is it gonna be today in the world?” so I am very blah.  Moose has an upset tummy (I listened to it through the night the poor guy) and hasn’t eaten.

I am proud to announce that I will be doing a bi-weekly column in the paper on things to do while you are stuck at home.  It’s only to be 250 words but I can put  lot of information in that.  I am very grateful for this because it looks like the meetings have been all cancelled until May.  That it a huge cut for me since that paycheck pays my car payment and the motorcycle insurance.  So I am going to be doing a mad scramble.  I will need to get cracking and see what I can write and get out there ASAP.  All that aside I am very excited to do the articles because there is so much you can still do at home!  I am writing about things to do online as well as things for those that might not have online access or just want to step away from it for a bit.  So I have some virtual tours as well as ideas for puttering around the house.  So far I have four pages of ideas.  I need to figure out how to present them all.  Themes?  A how-to-do-it one for each idea (one online and one at home)?  I don’t know yet.  I want to sit down with the list today.

I surprised myself with the whole thing.  I pitched it to my editor as something someone could do, not necessarily me.  I thought since everyone would be reading the paper more it might be a good idea to include a little something like that.  I was told it was a good idea if I wanted to run with it.  (I have to admit I did let out a yelp when I read that.)  I immediately sat down and came up with a bunch of ideas.  An within half an hour I had written the article and sent it in.  THAT really surprised me.  I wasn’t sure if they wanted it for this weeks paper or not but I cranked it out an sent it in.  So I will let you know if I sent it in in time for it to make it into this week’s issue.

I should probably wrap this up and try focusing on my other writing.  I should also send out some queries to magazines and such to see about getting other stuff out there.  Wish me luck!  Thanks for reading!  I hope you and yours are safe and have a great day!
