It's just a start, but I did it -- and it feels good. It feels won-der-ful! I've started my new book project. Not notes, not thoughts, but the real thing. I've written part of Chapter One. How exciting! How nerve-wracking! But mostly, how FUN! My story is starting to come to life in my head and now, on the page!
I did my usual getting-started stuff. I went for a run (and gottwo more ideas for Chapter One), I washed the bathtub and the bathroom sink, I even vacuumed the livingroom rug, and I had about four cups of green tea while I worked. And now, the thing is officially STARTED. So here's my wisdom for today. START SOMETHING. It's especially satisfying to start something you've wanted to start for some time. It feels a little like stepping into a pool... a little chilly on your toes at first, but once you get in, it's DELICIOUS!
