I was hoping to be incredibly productive on the writing front today, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I took two naps, listened to a few chapters of my book, and did some laundry. I also went through a large stack of papers that I’ve been shuffling around for months. There was a lot of trash and also a few gems that I am filing away for another day. Here are some of the things I found:

  • Class notes from a digital marketing class I took last year. There are many tips and tricks that could make my work life a lot easier to manage.
  • A list of writing prompts from January 2019. At one point, I must have made a list of things I wanted to write about. Some of them are no longer relevant, and others are evergreen. It’s a good list to keep around.
  • A holiday card from my writing coach turned friend. She wrote, “thank you for believing in me as much as I believe in you.” Love her!
  • Membership cards to Longwood Gardens. I will need those as soon as this cold weather breaks and the flowers start to bloom again.
  • Bed Bath and Beyond coupons – you can never have enough of them!

Maybe my day was more productive than I thought. I managed to fill up my recycling bin with papers I no longer need, which is always good.

And maybe tomorrow I’ll have a better writing day.

    I hope both of us have a better writing day tomorrow. As for the Coupons it must be nice as they closed our Bed Bath and Beyond and I was so upset. But life goes on….

    Elisa, that sounds like a completely wonderful day, and as Martha says, actually a productive one. Btw, I danced Swan Lake at Longwood Gardens! I was in the Corps de Ballet with feathers pinned in my hair. They created a stage by putting big plank units over the dancing fountains. I was surprised it was smooth enough to dance on! You’ll write faster and better another day, now that your brain is relaxed and cleared out.

    I would say you had a very productive day. May not have been what you planned but sounds like you got a lot done! That’s what I have to do soon, clean out paperwork and stuff!
