RoE.d1.day58 – what would Uncle Jim say, she asked

after catching up (plus some) on the writing today, i went snowshoeing with my wife, during which time i marred the otherwise pristine beauty and peace of the post-snow storm landscape with incessant talk regarding my worries over the direction, pace, characterization, plotting, and just about everything else of Running on Empty.

my wife listened patiently until i’d finally run myself out, then she asked me what Uncle Jim would say about this.

she knew the answer*, of course, and so did i, but i guess i just needed to be reminded.

i am so damn lucky.


*first, get to the end. everything else can wait.
