Hola! Its a beautiful Friday afternoon in Portland, Oregon, and I am posting the very first post on my new blog. Well, its not exactly new–just the design and the host (WordPress instead of Typepad). So, there’s a bit of a learning curve here and I’ll be playing around the next few weeks. But seeing as how it is Friday, its time for another edition of five things are going on in my life.
What I’m Working On: NaNoWriMo, in a cheating sort of way. Cheating because I already had around 17,000 words written when I started last Sunday and the rules say you can’t start until November 1. What I’m doing is using the collective energy to help me writing every day. And its working–I’ve got 10,000 more words racked up then I did this time last week.
What I’m Crazy About: Meditation. I know. But I’ve managed to put together a daily meditation practice for three weeks in a row now and I’m pretty happy about it. Researchers say the brain changes after just six weeks of meditation and I believe it, because I feel different. More in a blog post about this next week.
What I’m Doing This Weekend: Attending Wordstock, our local literary festival, reconstituted after a year’s hiatus.
What I Need You To Be Aware Of: The fact that if you followed me on Typepad and arranged to get notification when a new post published, that might not have transferred over. Then again, we’re not sure. So if anybody got here via email, please let me know! Meanwhile, I’ll try to figure out how to let you subscribe in the comments box.
And, um, yeah, there’s no photo–because I haven’t figured out how to add one yet. All in good time, people, all in good time.
