are made to be changed.

Yesterday I was sure I was out of Melissa's 100-day challenge. I thought I'd never be able to catch up. I was totally certain I'd need to begin again from day one, all by lonesome, and do my own little challenge because I'd fallen a week behind.

Then I read yesterday's comments. I felt the stench of defeat blow away on the chill morning air. I was instantly inspired, buoyed by the support and encouragement of friends I've never met in real life.

You know, the smile on my face is completely real life, so long-distance companions must be the real thing, too. Don't you think?

Anyhow, my plan changed. Today I did today's 28, as well as yesterday's 27.

Thank you!

Oh! This must be the change-plans weekend. Yesterday I fully intended to get right into that closet, remember? But before I opened the doors I sat down to write for, you know, just a few minutes. A few minutes turned into a couple of hours. I lost myself in the story and it wasn't until my back hurt and fingers ached that I realized how much time had actually passed.

So...the closet? Untouched.

I guess closet cleaning will become a plan for another weekend! *G*

I'm glad their solutions help because it's fun to see that we've done that day's challenge.

Isn't it powerful when the writing muse takes you (us) on a journey.

The closets can be done anytime.

Have a good weekend.

So glad you didn't give up. Good for you!!

No big plans for me this weekend. Just going to clean the house. Not much fun but necessary!
