August’s weirdness continued with yesterday’s strange events. Tallying a mere three hours and forty minutes of sleep, I woke tired and in need of caffeine. My daily tarot cards represented a refreshing change from the ordinary doom and gloom. They predicted,
“Things will go smoothly. Your ambition is galvanized by the Devil and channeled by the Pope. They help you attain your goals today and to work efficiently and intelligently. You’ve got the energy to spare, but by staying calm, you’ll be able to weigh the pros and cons of all your decisions before acting on them. It’s a well-balanced day with no risk of failure looming.”
And so, my day progressed. The 9 to 5 was remarkable in the lack of drama. I tackled my course modules, finishing three in their entirety. For one exercise, I embarked on a search for a half-remembered phase and stumbled upon a site with pertinent information I will need for one of my anticipated scenes. Score. A fourth module involved setting up a workbook of questions designed for completing over the following nine lessons. After devising a strategic plan, I printed and assembled the manual with ease. Next, I conducted a preliminary overview of the fifth module before I ended my session.
But I still hadn’t finished. I updated my Kanban board and my daily planner and made a few decisive choices on several administrative tasks I have considered undertaking. They received assigned dates for implementation on my Q4 project list. With my decisions made, I picked up my current read that bombarded me with more potential ideas. It’s a good practice that I read with a pen and steno notebook by my side. Once again, I toyed with options for a Zettelkasten but figured I had done enough for one day.
I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 274 countable words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
