I did come up with two new ideas, one for a short contemporary the other a mystery. I always have a surplus of ideas, it's corralling these ideas into coherent scenes that I struggle with. However, I'm determined to make headway with this story and have resolved to sit down for as long as it takes to get my 1,000 words/day.
Still getting up at 6am to write. A little tired after staying up late to watch the Golden Globes. How much do I love Jeff Bridges? His movie doesn't open here until Feb 2 and I can't wait. My movie going sister is moving back to Toronto (sad) so I'm going to have to find another movie going partner. Unlike my reading preferences, where the fluffy and trashier the story, the better I like it, I like my movies with a little more depth.
On the health and exercise front, I'm afraid the cold, snowy weather is forcing me to exercise at the gym. And I'm having a hard time getting there. The only excuse I could come up with to avoid the gym was I couldn't find my ipod. Okay, I didn't look too hard. In an effort to make me more accountable, I've set up a little meter on the right side of this blog. The two week goal for exercise is a total of 6 hours.
Totally doable and the bare minimum of what I should be doing. I'll work on increasing it once I get my enthusiasm for the gym back.
