Like anything else in life being single and living alone has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the advantages is the ability to do what you want without needing to check in with anyone else first. My schedule is solely my own. I don’t need to work around anyone else’s time. When I get the itch to take off on an adventure, I can just go. (Confession: I leave a note on my kitchen counter so people know where to start looking if something goes awry.) If I feel like eating pancakes for dinner, I can. If I want to paint a room chartreuse, no problem. (No, I don’t have any room in the house painted chartreuse, but I could if I so desired.) I choose what to watch or not, what to listen to or not. Being able to live comfortably solo has given me a sense of strength and confidence. When the shit hits the fan, you need to figure it out. Even if figuring it out means duct tape until a better solution comes to mind.
So on this dreary, rainy night it’s PB & J for dinner while I try to finish up the posts for this challenge. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll cook a real dinner, or go for a walk, or do some gardening, we’ll see. Tomorrow is another day to do with as I please.
Let’s Get Emotional
My goal with the challenge this year is to use it as an exercise to write something focused on a particular emotion. I hope to convey that mood or feeling through word choice in the story. I welcome your feedback on what worked or didn’t for you in each piece.
Once upon a time...
