So I am taking Pooh’s advice one more time and I am rededicating time and effort in my writing. I am taking time to seriously focus on writing, something I haven’t done since college and lots of free time. Or the time I did NaNo and Camp NaNo several years ago.
Once I figure out the order of my day, I should be able to write for two to three hours. Plus building time in for research and learning the craft. The dogs will make sure to keep me in touch with walks and exercise. Pretty sure they will let me know when it is time for lunch breaks.
This week starts my new chapter in life. Here is hoping I am up to the challenge. Cheers, james
Warriors don’t always win, sometimes you have to make a strategic retreat. There is no dishonor in retreating. It just means you need to step back and look at the options. Decide if you really have to go over that hill or if you can manuever around it. Because it may serve you better to take several steps back and take another path.
Today will start a new path for me. The war was lost. However, it is time to call a retreat, regroup and look at my options. The closing of a chapter in one’s life does not mean the end of the story. Just the start of a new page and maybe a new story.
We got the camper moved and set up. We ate our first meal and spending our first real night. The campground is nice; quiet and dark. Really pitch black dark, which means star watching will be amazing. The furbabies are settled down and snoozing. It was a long busy day for everybody. Tomorrow will bring unpacking, sorting and getting things settled.
Today is moving day. We will be pulling the camper from the driveway of the house to a local campgroup about 15 miles away. Then we’ll set up. Remembering to put the wheel chocks down Before you open up the slide out. I had to learn that lesson the hard way. I also banged my head trying to get out from under the slide out. Once everything is hooked up, plugged in, I’ll be coming back to get the furbabies. And viola instant home. At least I really, really hope it will be that simple.
Fingers crossed it all goes well. Cheers, james
I’ll let you guys know how it turns out. Wish me luck folks, I need all the help I can get.
Pretty soon, I will be moving from our house into a travel camper with my husband and two dogs. (Cue manical laughter) Seriously though, we are doing this to get a better grasp of what we want to and where we want to do it. We will be moving into a small campground that has full rv hookups available. Yay! No having to figure out the whole dumping tanks thing, at least not yet.
The campground is about 15 miles from our current location in Kenansville, North Carolina, about 45 miles from Wilmington. My husband says we live in a geographical anomalie because we are literally an hour from any decent sized city. Draw a triangle between Jacksonville, Goldsboro and Fayetteville, then stick your finger smack dab in the middle and you should be about on Kenansville. Duplin County at the very least. Pretty weird right.
We are keeping our day jobs and by cutting down on our expenses. We will hopefully grow a future allowing for our dreams. That is the plan at least, you are perhaps familar with the whole men and mice thing per Mr. Robert Burns. I cheated, I just looked it up. He actually used schemes instead of plans. In this situation, schemes may be the better choice. Ah well I will let you know how things go once we get started.
P.S. if you have any advice, tips or quotes share them in the comments.
