Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 16th, 2022 Ridiculous

It’s been a while since I took part in Linda’s JusJoJan month-long prompts, but, since I vowed to be creative, here goes!

Today is January 16th, so this is the 16th prompt for Just Jot it January 2022, and it’s brought to us by Lauren. Thanks, Lauren! Please be sure to visit her blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 16th, 2022, is “ridiculous.” Use the word “ridiculous” any way you’d like. Have fun!

My mind is blank.

And that is just ridiculous, isn’t it?

It probably doesn’t help that I have been sitting at my desk on and off since 11am, reading the 61K that I already have written on book 2, ready to really go at finishing this manuscript, after an early wake-up call from my brother and Finndian nephews at 7.30am on a Sunday, followed by cleaning the house as I was wide awake.

But now, I am definitely ready for a chance to cuddle up on the sofa with a nice, hot drink, and my Kindle.

Hopefully, I’ll be back to more enlightening posts, tomorrow!

Over and out!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 358 – Determination

img_00411

“I believe success is achieved by ordinary people with extraordinary determination.”

Zig Ziglar

Okay, Spidey, I get it. I need to up my determination!

I consider myself an ordinary person. There’s nothing special about me, other than I am blessed with wonderful people around me and the world has conspired to give me enough of everything I need.

(Sometimes more stress, and less time to do what I want, but I’m not fussing!)

But in order to achieve all the hopes and dreams I have for my work, as well as in my writing career, being determined is my biggest resource.

I have to have that feeling of wanting to achieve, in order to get there.

And I need that determination to seek out the time to reach my goals.

Things are hectic, again here, with changing rules, absences in school due to Covid rising again, so different stresses at play, but I have ensured I have stuck to that daily writing habit. Every day on the blog, and some time on the WIP a couple of times a week.

I am determined to translate the daily blogging habit into a daily writing routine, after January, so no matter how short, I am still focussing on that manuscript that I have to finish.

Peeps, it will get written!

So, are you a determined person?

Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

#SoCS Jan. 15 2022 – A Rainy Day

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “a rainy day.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “a rainy day.” Enjoy!

When I wake up and hear the pitter-patter of raindrops, my thoughts of the forthcoming rainy day truly depend on the day.

If it is term time, and the heavens have opened, I rue it.

Wet play.

The kids are wild. Half the equipment is unusable as it becomes too dangerous and slippery. Wet coats are hung up around the room.

Driving in certain rainfall isn’t great, either. Now we live in the countryside, there are roads that get flooded, meaning a journey that takes even longer as I navigate routes.

All in all, rain on a school day is pure STRESS!

Now if it was a weekend, and we had no plans, then, perfect.

You’d find me curled up on the armchair, or snuggled in bed, with a hot drink and my latest read.

See.

Perfect.

A girl with cheeks that were freckled
Always found herself getting heckled
But she wore them with pride
And never did hide
Those cheeks so beautifully speckled

Oh my days, so silly!
