Let’s Get Busy

This is home.

Up here is Main Street…Along here’s a row of stores…Public School’s over yonder. High School still farther over.

From Our Town by Thornton Wilder

Giles County Courthouse, Pearisburg, Virginia

I know. We’re already too busy. Work with me.

I had a quick trip to the hometown for a family event this weekend. Celebrating a cousin’s birthday and my Mom’s upcoming birthday.

It’s always good to go home to visit. But I never have quite enough time to get around and see people and so some things I want to do.

I know. Visit longer.

Come September, I’ll be able to do that.

If you know, you know.

I spent some time thinking about stories and in my quest to write one thousand words a day I rattled off a list of stories I can tell.

No, I’m not telling them today.

It’s just that on those days when I think I have writer’s block, the list is a good reminder that I do have things to write about.

It’s also a good reminder that I don’t necessarily have to publish them all.

It was a good weekend. But there was a lot of driving and I got home much later than I’d hoped on Sunday evening.

I mean, I barely had enough time to dread Monday.

But it’s here.

And now I have things to do and stories to write.

Let’s get busy.
