One-Day Monday!

awesome Monday.jpg


First Monday of 2019! We got this! WE HAVE OVER 6 MILLION WORDS!!! Imagine what we can do this year!

Who's up for 7 mill?

Did you resolve to do many things this year? I'm changing my wording on it this year. I'm not resolving, I'm planning and making goals. And for some reason I decided that monthly goals were the way to go for me! So I want to write for the month what averages to 100/day. Not writing everyday, because that is very difficult for me, but if I can do 200 on one day... You get it. Then beginning of the next month is new goals. Anyway, I also want to knit 1 project or 30 hours for myself, and 1 project or 30 hours for someone else. I want to read one book. I plan to clean 1 room/area in my house, like a deep clean and purge. And I want 4 days per month where I don't spend money. No online shopping, no take out, no nothing. As I type I'm on par with my words, I am right around 600, and will have more at the end of the day. I am WAY over on my personal knitting and as soon as I finish that I'll get on a gift project. I've read 1 book, and I managed to not spend on one day. I have cleaned bupkis. But there are MANY MORE DAYS in the month in which to purge my bathroom cabinets.

And now to motivate you!:

We should totally do 7 million!

I've resolved to do a few things this year- reading (actually finishing a book a month is on there), writing (daily preferred, but if I can improve on what I did last year, I'll be happy), health (exercise & generally taking care of myself). I do like your monthly writing goal, but I'm such a procrastinator, I could see myself frantically typing on the last day every month to reach my goal.

I am intrigued by the flash challenge. It's just a question of what to write about.

I'm at 2104 words, so I'm ahead of schedule, but I wouldn't mind keeping that pace for the rest of the month.

My WIP is about 100 words heavier than when I left it. It's not going to be a particularly long piece, but I wouldn't mind it being a particularly finished piece soon.

YAY for all the accomplishment!

And I like the list!!!

I'm liking the month, cause even if I scramble for the end of month, I'm not spending the end of year scrambling bigger!

The Hiding Place - 300 words
(Stopped & started this a couple of times and then settled on this)

It would be a while before Mommy found my hiding place. I don’t know if she remembered we were playing hide and seek. I was hiding in the big closet in her and Daddy’s room. It was always very warm and cozy in there and some of Mommy’s dresses were soft. Today, I checked out Daddy’s winter coat. It was all the way in the back of the closet where it would stay until it got cold out. It was a little scratchy to the touch, but the pockets felt nice. There were a pair of gloves in one. I tried them on. Daddy has big hands so his gloves didn’t fit me at all. I dropped them on the floor and kept exploring. In the pocket where the gloves were was a folded up piece of paper, I unfolded it and saw a picture that I had drawn for Daddy when I was three years old. I draw much better now. I reached into the other pocket. There was more paper in there. I wondered if there were more pictures so I took it out. It looked a little like money but it didn’t have a picture on it like any of the money that Mommy had given me when we went shopping.

A bright light shone in as Mommy opened the closet door all of the way. She saw me on the floor, holding the bills in my hand. She said some words that were not nice and held out her hand for me to give her the money. I didn’t think that was very fair because I found it, but she was really mad.

I hope I didn’t get Daddy in too much trouble. If I did, I’ll have to show him a good place to hide
