You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd, but you can be happy if you’ve a mind to.
So sang the late, great Roger Miller. I’m inclined to believe him on both counts. Trouble is, I haven’t had the mind to be happy today. I’m still hurting over the loss of Buckley.
I’ve had an evening of the best possible comfort: a wonderful family, some wine, chocolate, Pride and Prejudice and Mexican food. Collectively they take the edge off.
But I haven’t been able to focus today, and I haven’t done any creative writing in several days. For now I’m stuck at about 7,000 words nine days into NaNoWriMo.
On the book-writing front, I was pleased to find out that my favorite blogger, The Pioneer Woman, just hit the NY Times #1 bestseller spot this week. I don’t know Ree personally, but I’m proud of her nonetheless. Check out her site when you have the chance. She really is a delight.
