2018 is here. We’re all in it – like it or not. I like it.
New year, fresh start, bright future. IN.
I’m not as thrilled to be IN my sweater most days.
And IN my parka some days.
And IN my fleece-lined coat other days.
And IN my paw-boots every single day!
Sometimes I’m IN a pile of snow
or IN a puddle of slush
or IN the path of a powerful wind.
Mom says, “If we’re in it, we’re in it.” and “It’s winter in NJ – that’s how winter works.” and “Sorry, Charlie, you can’t just stay IN bed all day.”
Mom is in it too. One thing she’s IN in 2018 is the StoryStorm Challenge.
She has to get 30 ideas in 31 days. She’s making a list on her phone, like she always does. Every day, she reads an inspirational post about ideas and writing, and that helps her meet the challenge and keeps her on track generating ideas…
…so I can sleep.
As long as she’s focused on story ideas, maybe she will ease off getting ideas about me!
