THANK YOU to everyone who left me lovely messages about my measly 500 words.
‘Tis true I was disappointed, BUT I also wrote my article (nearly finished) and my website report for meeting today.
I think it was more to do with maths:
disappointment + arguing children = opportunity to beat oneself up
Husband said I was a fool to publicise that yesterday was about writing. But I think he is wrong (I may be a fool, that’s true) but had I not said publically that I was writing today I would have managed 5 words. I persevered because I had to report back which meant that I managed to write 495 more words.
I do worry that my posting yesterday has precipitated many visits to opticians all over the UK. Sorry.
I am off to my meeting now. I will sit on my hands and I will tape up my mouth with elephant tape so I do not volunteer for anything…
