Copying Excellent Walker

My friend Ellen has a great blog called Excellent Walker. She did this thing that I like and want to use. At the end of her most recent entry, she posted where she walked that day and the type was smaller and in italics, like an aside.

I thought from time to time I would include entries from this journal I keep, and talked about here, where I list three things I did that day, and three things that made me happy (try not to be ill at the thought of it — it’s not as bad as it sounds).

Like so:

7/5
Good work gearing up for this chapter.
Dropped off shoes to be returned.
Emailed Jackie about the paperback cover for my blog.

Rice pudding, finding good quotes for book, turning off AC because it’s not so FREAKING hot.

Not, bad, right? Okay, not such an exciting day, but they can’t all be spent performing at Summerstage in Central Park! This is the writer’s life. When all the interviews and research is done you’re home, or wherever you write, day after day after day … writing.

  1. I also noticed Excellent Walker’s walking tally, and really liked that little feature. Glad to see you’ve adopted and adapted it!
