After the game, Jen and Lyn met up with Aaron and a few other friends at the only pizza joint in town. The Lobos had lost another game but, no one was surprised by that. The school was known for it’s rodeo and ag program, not for football or really any other sport. But, you support your town’s local teams no matter what and most of their friends liked to go for pizza after a game.
It was two in the morning when Jen got back on her bike to go home. It had been a good night. Aaron was, as usual, great on the stage. She thought about him as she waved one last time at him before driving away.
This month is known as National Novel Writing Month. The goal for this month is to write 50,000 words, which equals the length of a basic novel. I have decided to do the challenge thru my blogs. Now, I must tell you that I know this means I will not reach 50,000 words. I’m okay with that.
Halloween is in two days. So, let’s wrap up this blog theme with another admittance…
So, I’ve made my confession! I’ve spoken up and admitted to wanting to expand my writing horizon to wherever it takes me. Now, I have a question for you…
I don’t know if this happens to a lot of writers, but sometimes I pick a blog topic that sounds great only to realize there may not be much subject matter to it.
I’m taking a deep breath and holding it while I write this blog. This will probably be the most honest blog I’ve written to date. So, bear with me as I take you through my thoughts.
For October’s blog theme, I decided to go with discussing alter egos. I think it is fitting since Halloween is this month. People pretend to be someone else on that night. So, why not make a monthly discussion of it?!
I think, for this last post on “be still”, I’m going to bring the focus to being an author. I don’t know how every author practices their craft. I only know myself. I am a quiet person. I can be in a group of people and say very little. Those who know me, know I’m having a good time. The ones who love me, put up with my quietness.
As I go through this month thinking about how to “be still”, I find my mind drifting to my commute to and from work. I have twenty minutes both ways to sort of decompress from life and take a minute to breathe. I spend those times three different ways.
