I can't remember where I first read about the site 750 Words but it's based on The Artists Way and the goal in that book to write 750 words each morning. I signed up. Who knows how long I'll keep up with it but it felt good to write this morning. Here's some of what came out today:
I guess I'm trying to remember that things are never how they say they are going to be and the older you get the more you realize that but you're only allowed to be mad about it for so long. And then you have to focus on the good things. Like how seamless your ride to work was this morning. How your carpool didn't call, but that was OK because you got out of the house early and right as you turned the corner there was your bus, the limited one that's faster than all the others. And when you got underground you only waited two minutes for the train and it zipped to your next stop and than on your third and final transfer you only waited two minutes again. And someone made a comment about that big tupperware you were carrying, he was being funny and maybe you were annoyed at first as you often are when strangers try to talk to you first thing in the morning but this morning you laughed and appreciated his effort and when he said 'have a good day' you said it back and you meant it and you will.
