Today, if all goes according to plan, I am going to try finish my 1st story in the story spinner. I am having a few problems developing the lead character. Actually, if truth be told, I am having a few problems with the whole thing. But, I will not give up. I. Will. Not. Give. Up. I am going to do my best to make that story come alive. I hope I feel more inspired later on tonight when I actually start writing. Maybe I will sit on the couch, eyes closed, headphones on and listen to some music. That quite often works...it gets my mind moving. Of course, if I still have this stupid headache then I don't think I will be writing at all. I may just go to bed early. Or maybe I will watch Phantom again. First things first, however. I need to help my boy make his pine derby car for the race this weekend. And working with him, teaching him and guiding him is always fun. One of these days I will have to write about my kids...there's inspiration if there ever was any. And on a cheery note, today is my dad's birthday. Happy birthday, dad. I love you!!
