I was in the break room some few days ago, furiously scribbling away in my notebook. A lady passes me, sees what I am doing, and mildly asks, “Writing a book?”
I respond timidly, “Trying to, at least.” (Mind the colloquialism.)
She, rather surprised, stares and essentially says, “Oh, that’s great! I thought you were just were working on homework; I was just kidding. But keep at it and get the hell out of here!”
The conversation made me smile for the remainder of the day, until I was met with some rather unkind people, as is what usually happens when I go to work.
In other news, with my current project, I’ve broken the 40k word mark and completely filled an entire notebook. So now, I’ve retired one notebook and started on a new. It’s pretty exciting for me.
Meanwhile, I am learning just how time-management skills are important with work, school, a speech, two papers, and a bad addiction to writing and video games! Too bad I lack them. The time management skills, that is.
Also! Have a picture of me and the Boyfriend! It’s his birthday today! And my grandfather turns seventy-six as well!
