That right there is a crappy picture of part of my desk.
Why, you may be wondering, do I feel the need to post a crappy picture of part of my desk?
Well, it's because of the piece of paper tacked to the wall, the one reading "June 14 2011." That date is one year from next Monday. Monday is the day after we return from our mini road trip to Estes Park, and the day we're going to start working on improving our daily lives. It's also the first day of the year I'm giving myself to write a book.
Because, you guys, I finally have a book idea. (I'm sure you're thinking, Um, aren't you a writer? Don't you have book ideas all the time? And the answer is no, no I don't.) I'm not going to tell you what my book idea is, but don't feel bad, because I won't even tell Rob yet. Even though I'm narcissistic enough to keep this blog, I'm awfully shy. Any criticism would almost definitely kill this tiny seedling of an idea, right when it needs encouragement and care to grow.
The only reason I'm even saying this is so other people can keep me honest and motivated. A year from now, if you ask me about my book and I give you some crap excuse about why I couldn't write it after all, please punch me in the face.
