Miriam’s Art wants to wish everyone in Canada Happy Victoria Day. It is a weekend of celebration, loved ones and travel. Be safe on the road.
The children are home so I can’t do my usual ritual of healing. I thought of this as I drank my tea…I completely forgot. It was that busy. So I will post tomorrow. Usually I post on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. In the mornings on Mondays and Saturdays and around 6:00 or 7:00 pm on Thursdays. But tomorrow I will make an exception.
I have made headway with paying my taxes. I finally had enough courage to call them! It’s funny! A grown woman afraid to make a phone call! Well it went well enough except I forgot to ask if I had paid off last year’s taxes. I don’t know how that works. I should be close to paying it off. On top of that my washer is broken. It would cost about $1000 CAD to buy an environmentally friendly washer but since my daughter offered to pay for it as my birthday and Christmas gift for the next two years, I will be getting their cheapest model. LOL! It never rains it pours. I also have a car appointment coming up. Things happen in threes they say. I hope it’s not too expensive! And I hope there’s nothing major to fix. It is still under warranty! Phew!
I have been concentrating on my writing. My art and my art business has suffered. I have less time to paint and I used to paint my best work in the morning. Now the mornings are taken up with a course that helps me to stay focused and write and the writing. I just read a post where a lady is writing triple the amount of words that I am per day! Phew! What a kick in the pants. I can’t stress too much but I have to find a way to write more. I gave myself a deadline of being finished my first draft on July 1 2017. Well I have finished the last two chapters quickly. The main ideas are down! Now I have to go back and fill in some background. I am so excited! I have almost finished my first draft. Then I have to edit it. Then pay for an editor. Then publish! I have no idea where I will find the money but I have already written a check to myself for $10,000.00 for July 1 2019. LOL! Will I make that much money with a first book when no one knows who I am and when I don’t have money to pay for a publisher!? I can dream. It keeps me young. So I keep on writing. I have an idea for a second book – a shorter one that might be an ebook. And I am already writing a third book. Books one, two and three are a series. Wish me luck!
So I’ll post tomorrow about my healing journey. My children want me to heal. I am hurting the people I love by being anxious. I’m sorry. I have a tear in my eye. I will try to do better.
I am also posting at lunch time. I don’t know if that makes a difference. Please comment if you know.
