Take chances, make mistakes, get messy. Miss Frizzle from the Magic School Bus
Yep, I’m taking chances, and I’m making mistakes, and it sure is messy.
Why just this week I did all three.
Rip up that carpet and pad and save some money, I thought. (This was a chance, I just didn’t know it at the time.)
The carpet pad was stuck to the floor. (This is the mess, for sure.)
I started scraping anyway. I’ll just slowly work my way through the house. (This is the mistake, I am now realizing and dealing with.)
At the time I began the carpet project, I also began free writes in preparation for NaNo, my 50,000 word novel that I’ll be writing during the month of November.
Writing demands taking chances, making mistakes and getting messy. Yep.
I’m going in…again.
