How is did your first TOTALLY RAD WEEK go? Mine was good. I got my reading in (and started a new novel that I’m excited about), I wrote every day. Not fiction but at least something. and I went to the pool. I didn’t do flips. Actually, I didn’t even get in the water because we chose to go to the new rec center in our town and it was a leeeeeetle wild. I sat with the baby while the other four played. I didn’t mind sitting and watching and reading. It was pretty relaxing considering the decibel level in that place is off the charts. I also flashed some people when I tried to nurse the baby. So my fun goal didn’t come to fruition. They need to happen in a calmer pool or at a calmer time.
Here are my updated goals:
1. Reading: I’m going to read a chapter in my new book every day. It seems funny to make a goal to read because I love reading but more and more I find that I don’t make time for it. I also have found that I don’t finish books like I used to. So I am going to read every day and I’m going to finish this book.
2. Writing: I am going to write fifteen minutes minimum every day and at least one page of fiction a day. Even if it means doing it with crayons while the kids draw.
3. Fun: I’m going to get IN a pool. Keeping it real.
The other night Cam and I watched this documentary about actors who get regular work and who we may recognize but we wouldn’t know their name. They are the bad guys, the lawyers, the police chiefs, etc. in the movies. Never the leads, but always the plot movers (as many of them said).
I thought it was pretty fascinating. The number of actors in Hollywood is astounding–all of them working their butts off to get work, to do what they love, etc. at a great sacrifice. Very few become big name stars but they keep doing it despite the poor money, the humiliating auditions, the horrible odds competition, etc. They do it because they couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
