Hokey Pokey (What this blog's all about)

A writing challenge I've given myself to write every day for six months. After some posts, I'll put in a comment with a brief explanation of the inspiration for the piece. Some posts will be practice for bigger projects: character sketches or settings. I don't really know what all will happen which is why I'm doing it.

Journal 4

I realize I haven't done a journal entry in a while.  Here's what I've been doing instead.
Trying to keep up with my effort to post daily which at times has resulted in some pretty wimpy posts.  Still, I think if I let this slide so early in my goal, even if I'm not posting great ideas, it'll go out the window.  And I think this is a valuable exercise.  I want to keep at it.  Especially because not all of the ideas are duds.  And not all the ideas are going to be amazing anyway so what the hell.
I haven't been focusing on any particular new things here though because I started grad school and have been furiously looking for work.  I've been interviewing for jobs (none of which do I think I'll get to be honest.)  And I've been putting in bids on freelance writing jobs (none of which pay above minimum wage.)  I quit my job at Social Services 5 months ago now and am starting to worry about the economic problems catching up to us in the not so distant future.  So I'm swimming against the stream and exhausting myself trying to fight the current of our savings being flushed away.  Oh well.  Tonight was a lovely dinner.  And my son is developing wonderfully.  So while there's food on the table and good company, who am I to complain?
Life is good.  Uncertain.  And good.

For now, I'll not add in new goals.  I'm just going to try to keep writing every day and posting something.  Hopefully it'll give me an idea farm I can harvest from later.
