Thanks to Two Writing Teachers who graciously provide space for our slice of life each week.
I’m late. I have been experiencing an upper respiratory infection and last week the post didn’t get done. This week I promised myself I would have it finished. Last night as I sat to write, I melted into the chair. It didn’t get written.
So HERE I talked about my 2017 OLW. I considered OPEN only to realize it was my 2015 OLW.
In 2018, I will be facing a major change. I am graduating/retiring. This means that for the first time since September 1974, I will not have a full-time job.
it’s both terrifying and exciting. I decided that my word would reflect this change. I’ve been thinking of these three words: LEAP, SEEK, and JOY.
It’s been hard to choose one but I have selected SEEK. I’ve always been a seeker of sorts, thus, this is a terrific word for the changes mid-year.
I also decided on a phrase: “Leap and seek joy.”
I plan to SEEK
- time to write
- time to revise my novel
- playing with art
- working at a part-time pace
- volunteer opportunities
- photography opportunities
- travel opportunities
