I Thought I Was Stuck, and Then I Remembered This…

How’s it going? I was a teeny bit “eh” about what to write today, but then I realized what today was, and that I’d write about that.

Let’s get to it.

If you’re new(ish) here, you don’t know that I get sorta nostalgic at the very beginnings and ends of months during the year. Not sure why–maybe it’s because I enjoyed history as a kid.

So I usually call out the beginnings and ends of months as times to think about what went on, or what’s about to go on, based on what I have planned.

Stuff like finding writers I can refer work to so I don’t have to skip copywriting and content projects I’m not a good fit for (if things go well, I’m about to get a second guy lined up, who covers lots of niches I don’t).

Or finishing up my Twine submission to put my hat in the ring with a famous(ish) company.

Or writing other fiction.

And continuing to write to you so that you can read something from me 5 days a week.

There’s all that, all the time. That’s months and months and years of intentional planning, sketching, writing, brainstorming, and what-have-ya. But sometimes, just sometimes…

It helps to focus on one day at a time.

I could say it’s all we have, and it is. I could also say we need to have short- and long-term plans, and we do.

But there’s sometimes looking at today–just today–is what makes the most sense.

Today is January 31st. It’s a Wednesday, and I’ll be doing some shopping.

January’s about to wrap up. In a couple of days it’ll be Super Bowl Sunday.

My year’s started pretty well so far. How about yours? Drop me a line in the comments–I’d like to hear your thoughts on how things have been so far.

Until next time (and month),
