I am writing.
Well, I am charged with writing my book, but instead I am writing a blog post.
We are at the beach and it’s a gorgeous morning (after a series of awful, cold, windy and rainy mornings). “We” refers to me and the two Shelties that are doing a good job of distracting me from writing. Milli and Boomer are here because I knew I would worry about them if they were home. But they sure require a lot of my precious attention.
They are out wandering on the deck right now. I'm at the beach house that will be occupied by the ADDiva retreat women in October 2011. I am living in it so I will know how we can best use it for the retreat. Already I am envisioning yoga at sunrise and meetings at the octagonal deck on the sand. It's a marvelous place to be.
But my book is going more slowly than I anticipated and I have a DEADLINE. OK, I will say it out loud: my book is going to be written, edited and printed by my birthday, April 29, 2011. OMG! Are you kidding me?
The more I write, the more I need to write. I worked with Judith Kohlberg for a weekend and she encouraged me to drop out a lot of stuff I thought was important (“You have other books to write. Save something for them,” she told me). But I am adding that stuff back in. It IS important. And I want this book to be rich and full of tidbits and anecdotes about life in the non-linear lane.

Here I am sitting at my brought-from-home desk with adjustable tables all around me. It’s an amazing view. I wish I had more time (don’t I ALWAYS Wish I had more time?) but I promise you this: the book WILL be done. DONE, do you hear me? DONE. By my birthday.
So I’d better write...see you later..and keep WRITING!!
