It’s the second day of my Christmas break, and I was up and at the computer by 5:45 a.m. I’ve finished my Pink Typewriter Post for tomorrow and am now ready to tackle my #366Days writing for today. You know what? That’s all because of you.
See, I woke up so early because Larry has to go to work today. I’ve never been one to sleep terribly late — at least not as an adult I should add since I know my mom is reading this! Getting up early isn’t the problem; it’s the getting started. Typically I would have allowed myself to head straight to the TV, snuggled under a blanket and told myself I’d watch just one thing. And then just one more. And, oh look! There’s a movie I’ve never seen. On those days when there would be nothing good on TV, I might lose myself in a book or a puzzle or most anything else to while away some hours. There’s nothing wrong with TV watching, puzzle working or — goodness knows! — book reading, but I’d spend so much time doing that that there’d be none left for writing.
That’s where you came in.
I really want to have a lazy morning. But I thought about my sister who checks my blog in the morning because that’s when she has time. I thought about the friends who have mentioned that you enjoy reading my posts. I thought about my promise to myself that I made through the #366Days Challenge. It was enough to get me into the chair. It was enough to get my started.
So, I just wanted to say a quick thanks to you for holding me accountable. Now I’m going to go grab some breakfast and see what’s on TV. It is Christmas Break, after all. 🙂
