Last night was the first time I can remember this year where I got frustrated to the point of tears. So far, I’ve been of positive enough mindset to avoid it. I’m pleased with that and hope it can continue.

The numbers I have to report for yesterday, however, are not helping.

199 blog words, 384 fiction words.

I am grateful for the relatively mild winter we’re having.

I am grateful for warm showers and fluffy kittens to help dry my ankles. (Seriously, I don’t really encourage that, they just do it.)

I am grateful for…well, I am not grateful for the lack of willpower and motivation I seem to be displaying in my writing, but I am grateful for cats who decide I need love and curl up for a quick purr therapy session when I’m beating up on myself a little.

Well, I’m off to start my morning and grab that warm shower I was talking about. Hopefully, it will make the cold showers the weather intends to give us later seem not as bad.
