Although I had a busy day, I still made time to write, which is what this is all about. Aside from not getting out of bed until 11AM today, I got my domestic goddessing out of the way early, for I have greater things to do on Wednesdays. I joined a little local writing group for North Houston writers, and tonight was our second meeting. I love these meetings. It gives me a chance to be around other writers who understand what the mind and the life of a writer needs. We are all introverts trying to live in an extroverted world. We’re shy, often nerdy and very needy in validation of our writing, which is why I fit right in. It’s perfect for my personality.
After the meeting, I rushed home because it was well after 9PM and I had writing to do! My selection for the evening was a new Riesling called Chateau Ste Michelle. My fiance picked it up at our local Specs, so I’m not sure how much it cost. It’s very sweet and I sipped it in between nibbles of two squares of Hershey Symphony with Toffee chocolate. I have to say, Yum Yum! To tone down the sweetness of it, I did the swirling thing again, which always mellows out a wine. It’s a great wine and I started feeling the effects halfway through the glass.
As far as the writing goes, I only got about 800 words done. Not too bad for a short night. I wrote and that’s the important part. I would love to say a year from now I am on the final chapters of the novel. Thanks to my goals I will keep going!
As always, Sláinte!
