I almost didn’t come to my write-in this morning. I didn’t sleep well last night and it’s just a crappy, crappy day. But I decided the day wasn’t going to look any less crappy at my house, so I came. And the funny thing is, a couple of the people who are here today said the same thing. They almost didn’t come either…because it’s such a crappy day. But here we all are…

Things started looking up the second I walked in here. I saw sarah_prineas’s bright smiling face in our usual corner. And she wasn’t alone. So my mood shifted a little bit right from the start. I am so fortunate to have these wonderful people in my life.

And then I ordered my tea and it came in a little blue tea pot. My favorite color. That has to be another sign that the day is looking up.

Plus I have a finished draft of book 1 of my series. Yes, I typed “the end” this weekend. And I don’t have to turn it in for another week. That’s also positive. My critique group meets tomorrow night so I’ll see what they have to say…and then I’ll push hard on the manuscript again come Wednesday.

It’s only a crappy day if I decide it is, right? It is within my power to make it NOT a crappy day…

    Congrats on finishing your #1 book. I look forward to hearing more about your series. I’m having fun with series writing, too.

    Glad you got over the crappy day. Sometimes we just have mood issues but they don’t last long (g).

      We HOPE mood issues don’t last long.

      We really should try and get that series writing discussion group going one of these days…
