How’s your week been so far? It’s been kinda hot here. And I just looked over my archives and realized I’m about to embark on a strange tradition I’d accidentally started last year.
Let’s get to it.
That tradition revolves around the fact that today is…
The first day of summer.
The weather is beautiful (and I’ll be out in it today, mowing and soaking up some sun).
The birds are singing (even doves, I just love it…but we also have robins and a cardinal or two).
Summer is about trying to break a bad habit of mine…more of a pattern really.
For me, summer is about trying to push negative thoughts out of my brain. Not to be a downer, but there are sometimes that summer fills me with regret over what I haven’t accomplished yet (which I know deep down does nobody any good).
You can read more about that in Why I Hate Summer. It has nothing to do with the season.
And I’m looking to break out.
I’m going to be doing more though. A prospect of mine who needed a writer put me through a four-figure copywriting course for free. Finished that yesterday. I want to use that knowledge to write for him and his clients. I hope to be doing that this summer. I think about 10 hours, probably more at the beginning, per week should cover that. I’ll also be doing script writing for the client I got connected to a couple months ago now.
I want to get on the fiction train–except for the little bit I do for Triple F for you, I haven’t been with it as much as I should have…which means I should just repeat Today’s the First Day of Summer and a Story about Girls in Water again. But I already did that, when I reread it.
In fact, one of my first summer activities is going to start tomorrow. I’ll tell you about it after it happens, so stay tuned.
And…I’m saying this to you, but I’m saying it about 50 more times to myself, who I put at the top of the need-to-know list…always, always, always keep your dreams.
They’re usually about impact, because that’s what’s on the other side of money, power, and what-have-ya that most people say they want more than anything.
Until next time,
