You never realize how much time has passed until you really get a chance to look back on things in retrospect. At the top of this month, I revealed books seven and eight on my list to complete by April 30th; and here we are on the twenty-seventh as I write this and I’m still sixty pages short in Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods!
It’s Thursday night while I’m writing this and I’m looking back on the previous weekend and this work week like it was a blur. Easter was on Sunday and I made the familiar sojourn back home to visit my family and enjoy their company for a few days. It was a much-needed break away from the city and from my daily routine as well. But I also hoped to use it as a creative opportunity.
As we creep closer to midnight, I’m just now getting a chance to really sit down and gather my thoughts from the very ‘trying’ day. Trying is perhaps an understatement of epic proportions but it wouldn’t be life without a curve ball thrown at you every inning or so. But now’s not the time for that. The time is for sharing another writing contest that I want to submit to.
