fifteen minutes

I have taken Mommy Daisy up on her challenge to get moving for an extra 15 minutes every day from now until the end of the year. I don't really make a point to move each day as it is, so Im starting from the basics here. Today I ran up and down the stairs for awhile and then danced around with Rayden. It was fun and he thought I was a goof. I don't think it will be too hard to do because it is only fifteen minutes but just thinking of something to actually do will be the issue for me.

In other news, Ive been working on the Novel (5 more days to write 21 000 words, eek!) and Im writing a lot about dating. Now I was going to have something really big happen with the current guy character but I didn't know what. I was going to have him die or cheat or something, but I just couldn't figure it out. Now though after the email from M, Im finding myself wanting to make this character pay. I am totally transferring my personal life into this novel and its turning out kind of funny. The guy character that Im doing this with was never meant to be a big part in the novel but he is turning out that way so I think he is going to disappear sooner than he wants. I just have to think of a really fun way to get rid of him. I only have so much more time to fit in another big guy character and I need this one out of the way first. Maybe this stuff with M came at a good time! Writing a book is exciting!

Yeah, keep up the good work. Have you been able to get your 15 minutes in today yet?

That's great that you are challenging yourself to get up and moving for 15 min a day! Good luck!

Also, that is great that you are putting personal experiances into your book. It'll make it more enjoyable for you down the road.

Hey, I'm going to try the extra 15 min, too!!! That sounds totally doable and non-threatening. Hooray!

Hmmm... maybe he could die of the Clap? Get hit by an out-of-control condom delivery truck? Overdose on Preparation H?

I think I'm going to have to try the 15 minutes a day thing too!

Good luck with the payback! I like Astarte's thinking!!!
