Two days in NYC, three broadway shows, the Museum of Modern Art, some insane cookies, it’s been a banner week. I always find New York City inspirational. I have since I was a small child growing up on Long Island. I visited often when I was a child, I lived there for two or three years as an adult and now I find myself back in love with it. I’ve lived in Berkshire County Massachusetts for the past four years and just started finding my way back last year. I didn’t realize how easy it was to get there, and was always worried about how expensive it would be. I spend $150 on tickets to the shows I saw and that’s it. There are ways to do things inexpensively in NYC, you just have to do the work. Go to the TKTS booth, find rush tickets, try lotteries, etc.
I didn’t do much writing, except journaling and the haiku’s that you’ve seen on the site but I’ve been inspired to do more. Ideas, plot lines, romances they are all running through my veins as I type this. I read this article, Stephen King’s Top 20 Rules for Writers, in it he says that it shouldn’t take more than three months to write a book. So, starting tomorrow, I’m going to be working on that. I’ll continue my haiku’s and checking in with you all but I’m going to commit. And I’m going write, it might be crap but I’m going to do the work. That’s what it all comes down to right? Doing the work?
Trip always leave me inspired, and that’s how I feel right now. I’m also tired, exhausted, want to quit my job so I can spend all my time at my computer etc., but I’ll work through those feelings. Have a great week everyone and thanks for taking the time to read this!
