I’d ask if you’ve ever been stuck in traffic, but given roadways these days, it’s pretty likely. I do have to ask though… how did you react? Did it stress you out, frustrate you, relax you, feel… “it’s unenviable, but inevitable”?
What about curious and creative? Or perhaps even awed?
I had all of those experiences the other day while stuck in some traffic on Interstate 78 on my way to our old house. Yeah, it slowed my already long trip home down, but I saw stories; I saw gorgeous scenery (there are some sandstone “cliffs” where the hills had been blasted back to make the road that were stunning contrasts in colors and textures, even to a point where runoff had virtually melted the choppy stone into liquid floes; I got a lot of people watching done…; heck, I even got the chance to b-bop to my favorite song without worrying if I might wiggle the steering wheel too much and cause an accident.
Being stuck in traffic—or on the page—doesn’t have to be negative or annoying. It can be a blessing in disguise, if you give it a chance. And, it is inevitable (and unenviable), so why not make the best of it?
Let us know how you’re doing in the comments, on FB or in your blog check-in (don’t forget to leave a link for us to find you there).
This is…. late. Very, very late… I should have posted Wednesday, but…
But hey, the ROW80 is the Challenge That Knows You Have a Life, and so we move on to a glorious Round of Words in 80 Days, never grumbling about the the small mix ups. It’s the effort we put forth to improve our futures that matters the most. And we’ve got that in the bag.
So… as always, tell us about how you’re doing so we can cheer you on. Here, in the comments or on the FB page.
Are you ready? Ready to write, create and finish those stories you’ve been working on?
Good, because we’re approaching the final Round of Words in 80 Days challenge for 2019. Let’s make it a great one, folks.
Why not get a headstart on your progress by getting your goals posted and tackling a smalll bit of one or two of them before Monday rolls around. You’ll feel better at having started, and you’ll have begun a habit of honoring your creative endeavors.
A “Win Win” if I might say so.
The Goals Linky is up and ready for you to stake a claim to your creative future. Just click here (or on the little blue froggie below) and add your link to the page. Or if you’d prefer to not use the linky tool format, you can pop a comment below or on our FB page.
Remember Sunday’s vague post… how discombobulated it was?
Well, turns out, I was even more at a loss that I’d suspected. Today (well, technically tomorrow), ends our current Round of Words in 80 Days!
Yep, I really was that out of things these past few weeks.
Hopefully all of you have still been prepping yourself for new adventures in creativity (and those less inspired tasks that support our passions). Round 3 is now done, but we still have Round 4 to look forward to in 10 days from now.
Are you ready? If no, you’re not the only one. But together we can make it into a great experience.
