Confession Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, folks! Share a little of yourself with us and we promise to do the same.

In a few weeks, it will be November, which means our fiction friends will be participating in NaPoWriMo. I’m seeing a few blog posts and tweets already. Once again, I’m going to attempt to write a poem a day. Admittedly, my last few attempts have only yielded a few poems. But something in me likes the extreme pace. And even if I only get a few poems written, it makes a huge difference in how I approach managing my time. So for the next month, managing my time around poetry becomes a priority.


This past week, I’ve woken up at the crack of dawn—before dawn, really—and spent two hours writing. Before morning tea, before the kids enter the room, I was able to let those dreamy thoughts hit the page. Love it. It’s a feeling I definitely want to repeat to the point of habit


It’s been a while since I posted a poem. Will do so soon.


Yesterday, I took the kids to the library. We go quite often during the school year as my daughter is a voracious reader, reading books well above the second-grade level. She picked up four new chapter books and read almost two books in one sitting. She’s amazing.


My life is so complete and full. It is so complete and full that if I added anything to it, it will explode. So I have been giving serious thought to ways I can simplify and streamline how I do the routine things around the house. Everything from using a grocery delivery service, to having someone clean the house once in a while--you name it, I'm considering it.

November will be a month of change and reevaluation. By the time the holidays come around, with any luck I'll be able to enjoy them.


A question for you dear reader: what do you do to help you manage your time?
