Day 4 of 100 Days of Good Karma.
I’ve been taking a notes during what seems like a trillion phone calls to the insurance company and doctor’s offices. I’ve been trying to keep all these notes together in the same notebook, but for some reason I reached for an old notebook this morning.
Today’s silver lining: Inside I discovered a short story I’d written a couple of months ago.
It was all in longhand, but it was a complete first draft. Not one of the many started-and-abandoned-half-way-through short stories I’ve got scattered around the house.
It’s the only flash fiction piece I’ve ever written.
In addition to my daily blog posts, this story is a perfect writing project to focus on for the rest of the week. At less than a thousand words, it’s long enough that it will distract me for a few days, but short enough that I can finish it this week.
I typed it up, and I’m eager to get started on revisions tomorrow.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments.
