I did it, I woke up, checked the time, checked my overall mood and bodily energy level, and instead of rolling over and going back to sleep, I got up, put on Rob's huge robe because it's warmer for four in the morning than my sexy silk kimono, went down to the kitchen and brewed myself a decaf coffee with a spoonful of baker's cocoa and a generous pour of Starbucks mocha coffee creamer.
I'm here, present, checking in.
Candle lit beside my laptop.
Mug of coffee.
I'm going to write this first, to get the pump primed and then go back to work on my new book idea.
Is it going well so far?
I'm going to try a different approach this morning.
I want the book to be less memoir, less self help, more spiritual discovery.
I got a letter from my publisher of the Sidney book.
She is unwilling to publish a second book about Sidney, or at least she's not interested in publishing the book I have written to follow up the first Sidney book.
She plans to keep the first Sidney book in print.
I'm just going to keep writing.
The world can have from me what it wants, but I'm through with cramming myself down peoples' throats.
I'm in my lane doing what I want to do with the days I have on this planet Earth.
I don't want to be part of the problem.
I want to be part of the solution and if that is keeping my footprint small and not making too much of a fuss, then that's fine too.
Yesterday I brought more clothes to the thrift shop, mine and Nina's to get money to pay the bills.
I'm in charge of paying all utilities for the house plus my own bills which include some debts that are being paid off.
It's all okay.
I'm doing it.
I have a lot of support and a lot of help and a lot of love.
So, I'm going to write my next book, right now, for you, because I know you're going to love it.
If you want to read Sidney book two...I have the manuscript and I can send it to you as a pdf.
What's that worth to you?
You could Paypal me some money and I'll send you the manuscript and you can let me know what you think of it.
I love you.
Have a great day.
Nina and I are on day 6 of the Home with Adriene yoga series for January.
We're set to do yoga this morning at 10am so I have time to write.
