Dream a little Dream

What's Jack up to? That Jack was a hot mess yesterday. We had him out for a little walk and he met up with new neighbor Arya (see below) and he wanted no parts of her. I was so embarrassed. Arya was so happy to see Jack ready to sniff and say hi and Jack kept running away. She tried and tried and he was not having it. It was very sad and Arya looked heartbroken. I really shouldn't be surprised. Jack is not even into dogs on tv. Here he is wanting no part of the dog show. I just don't know what to do with my anti-social dog. Humph!

Onto other news which is not really news, but I've still got Nano on my mind. Sorry, if this blog is getting boring. I'll think up something better soon. Maybe crash a party. Ugh! Don't get me started on at hot mess. Makes me so mad.

But, back to NaNo...Getting it completed was such a thrill. Would you like to see how it looked once I uploaded my manuscript? Sure you do, so here goes. I was happy to see this page. Pretty.

And this was my page once I passed the 50,000 word mark. It's wonderful how many others made their goals too and even those who did not still came so far because just trying and getting 10 or 20,000 words done is still so much. Congrats to all the participants!

If you have some dream that is gnawing at you and you think it's beyond your reach, I say give it a go anyway. You never know what you can do until you try. I'm not anywhere near my ultimate dream but I'm so much closer than where I was.

Any challenges pressing on your heart that you think you might want to try? Please share.

Dreaming os so many things right now. I think I need to challenge my dream and see how many illustrations I can get done in a month!
So proud of you for working away at your dream!
So good to have goals to reach our dreams.

What a pretty sight to see on your computer screen! You must be so proud! I'm pursuing my most current dream right now! It's fun to follow your dreams, isn't it?

Congratulations Kwana!! I think Jack does not realize he is a dog???

My "challenge" I need to get back into my gym routine, not rely only on dog walks or tennis (doubles only) for exercise!!! I use the elliptical and treadmill and finish up by reading whatever book I am reading on the stationary bike. Need to get back there!!! xoxoxo

Two words, 'Dog Whisperer.' Oh, and congrats of winning NaNo.
You have a lovely blog and I'm glad I came across it.
You take care.

Maybe Jack's just playing hard to get? :-)

I'm always dreaming...need to spend less time dreaming and more time doing. I hope to one day work to live and not live to work...9-10 hour days behind a desk are really getting to me, especially when I only get to be creative about 15 minutes of each of those days.

Keep following your are an inspiration!

Congrats, Kwana!!!! And thanks for showing us what the computer looks like for someone who finishes, because some of us (...ahem ...) have never done so. :) I'm really proud of you! Was it fun to see how fast the story spilled out of your imagination? Is it a story you think you can use someday for publication? Keep us posted on its progress!

Kwana said...

Thanks so much and Thanks Miz Write. I hope to finish it and be able to try and get it published. Fingers crossed. I say you should give NaNo a try.
