The first step

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step." Chinese proverb

So begins my journey. I'm aiming to up the number of steps I take every day. I need to move. The thing about writing is that it's a sedentary occupation--not given to much movement.

Next spring I will attend a convention with my fellow authors. From all reports it is difficult on the feet, requiring stamina. Since that seems to be in short supply with me, I decided I would initiate a program of walking. Not power walking as I have problems with my knees and hips. But just walking. So many steps every day to build up a bit of stamina and get my body used to movement.

It is now just after 5:00 p.m. and so far I've walked under 1,000 steps today. Pitiful.

Well, hopefully before I crawl into bed, I will have added a few more. In the meantime, I'll try to finish up for the day so I can get moving.

I've spent the better part of the day working on the edits for Honeysuckle. Soon, for those who were gracious enough to ask, I hope to have a release date.

And hopefully I'll have Daffodil finished this week. That would be nice. Summer whizzed past and I didn't finish anything. I don't know how that happened.

Until tomorrow.
