November is turning out to be a month of many changes. One of the good ones you already know about. I’m doing housework. For real. It’s not likely to become a habit, though. This is only to honor NAtional HOuse CLEaning MOnth (see new page.)
My second good change will be to set off on a plan to get my body back in shape. I can even maximize the power of NaHoCleMo to help. Obviously, if I’m moving about to clean, I won’t be sitting as much to write—I’ll be burning calories. Yay! It’s sad to admit, but in the two years I spent writing my last novel, I’ve gained twenty pounds. Yes, I’m a cow. And I dare not keep up this obsessive pace of sedentary writing or I’ll be elevated to elephant status.
So, barring any injuries to impede my accident prone body, I will embark on a daily walk. You read that right. I’ll be leaving the house and everything. But—and this is the best part—I’ll also be journaling what I see, hear, think, or whatever, during these walks. That may be the only writing I accomplish during November, but I believe it might be valuable. And maybe this change will become a habit.
Do you have any changes on the horizon for you this month?
