I am late in joining this third Round of Words, due to life getting in the way. My mother-in-law is gravely ill and not expected to survive past this weekend. My reflections on life, as well as the needs of my family, lead me to setting small, short-time goals, at least for the beginning weeks.
If you are unfamiliar with a Round of Words, or ROW80, click here to read more about it from the creator of the challenge, Kait Nolan. It is a writing challenge that “knows you have a life;” its flexibility is often helpful, as it is for me this Round.
This Round, I am continuing my earlier mantra to minimize the unimportant to maximize the important. I am concentrating on healthy habits of body and mind, and connecting rather than hibernating.
