Thank you so much for your kind words regarding feeling stuck. I know that this happens to everyone at some point or another, but lately it seems like I feel stuck in all aspects of my life and not just with writing. I'm setting small goals for myself with the hope of not feeling too overwhelmed.
Goals for this week:
-Journal about my responses and reactions to this article from the Icing blog called "2009: Where Are You At?"
-Read Michael Pollan's article, "Out of the Kitchen, On to the Couch"
-Do the week 1 assignment for my freelance writing course (an introduction plus why I want to be a freelance writer)
-Write a draft of an essay for Birthright Israel's essay contest on what the trip meant to me (2 winners get round trip tickets to Israel! Second place is a $500 Amazon gift card and third is a $250 Amazon gift card!). I have been wanting to put words to my experience for awhile now, so I figure that this is my chance.
-Keep up with my Morning Pages
Reward: I leave on Friday to spend a week in Maine with my boyfriend and his family. My reward is the trip and the gift of free time. If I don't finish these things, I'll be doing them at a lake in Maine when I could be enjoying myself!
