In case you were wondering, the title of this post has nothing to do with anything. I was reading some advice for high school grads going to college, and turning off the cell phone was among the advice. It probably wouldn’t make me seem more mysterious, because I’m already disconnected from Facebook and sort of bad at checking my phone. I think it would just make me seem antisocial. Some of you would probably seem mysterious, though. Let me know if you try it out.
On to business.
I’m going away for a week in October, so prepare yourselves for a week without STILL GROWING and my bright, shining face. I will be in Burnsville, NC reading and writing on the porch.
This weekend is the wine tasting, hiking, churching in Phoenix weekend and I’m jazzed.
I deleted the entire first chapter of my manuscript and rewrote it. I think what I have now is better for getting my readers’ attention and keeping it.
My mommy has been sending me a billion greeting cards (one-a-day) and they’re all delightful and make me smile.
I took more than a week off of running, and then did four miles last night. I was mentally burned out, so the break did me some good. I’m at exactly 10-minute miles, which is perfect.
I’m working on some blogging entries that just may include some masterpiece comic strips I’m creating in Paint… who knew Paint would eventually come in handy? I will say that it’s way harder than I remember to create masterpieces in Paint. Anyways, keep your eyes open for some visual aids coming soon to aid me in telling the stories about That One Time When I Jumped Off a Balcony to Impress a Boy, Why It’s a Bad Idea to Stick a Key In an Electrical Outlet, and Cocker Spaniels Are Stronger Than They Look.
I’m off to work, now… so bright wishes for a lovely day to everyone!
