For Chapter 8 I fullfilled my duties as a hostess, interviewing Mónica and Brianna and putting the MrLinky in place but totally disregarded my own work. "I don´t have time for this", was my excuse. I had to laugh when the description of this chapter´s work said (in a free form translation from my Spanish version): "We will investigate the manner in which we use our perception of time to avoid the creative challenges". Sooooooooooooo spot on!
1. Morning pages: I didn´t show up ... are you ready for this? ... Ok, then. I didn´t show up SEVEN days this fortnight. That is half the days! Unheard of. And on three days I wrote half (or less) the usual amount of lines. I was avoiding this BIG time.
2. Artist date: this is the closest I got to one.
That´s hubbie and me with our niece and a giant colouring book. Picture taken by Tati. I sharpened all 74 pencils.
3.1.1 The dream: to be a well known Blogger.
3.1.2 The Goal: 500 followers here at Happysnappy, a storyteller with a camera, 200 followers at Paula en español (Paula in Spanish, just like CNN and CNN in Spanish ;) ) 800 Likes in Facebook, to be invited as Guest to another blog/site/event.
3.1.3 In a perfect world, in five years time, all that and more. What about a whole site? Some kind of event of my own. All that on line plus something personal, 3D style.
3.1.4 In this real world, what can I do this year? I´m doing that. I´m posting on a regular basis with regular features, I´m hosting the Book Club.
3.1.5 Now, same thing
3.1.6 The dream/the north/the role model: Be a well known blogger/recognition on my own (not as somebody´s mom, wife, daughter)/ Donna Downey
3.2. An ideal childhood. The only thing I´d change from my own would be to add a room of my own (remember that my Room was my father´s office?) and a bit of loud music. ;)
3.3 My eyes change colour with the weather. I change colours too. Some days I´m a very soothing blue, the voice of calm and comfort. Somedays I´m Nature´s green, nurturing and alive. Or a bouncy orange. I admit the grey washed away days are not that uncommon.
My favourite colour has changed with the years: blue, orange, green, violet. Maybe it´s red now. I have a lot of red stuff.
3.4 Five things I can´t do: stop cleaning, swear in public, feed only on coffee and cake for every meal, play on line all day long oooohhhh, errrmmm, can´t think of more.
3.5 Twenty things I´d like to do: just click on the Wishcasting tag on the right hand side and you´ll have a long list. :)
3.6 An ideal day here and now: coffee, cake and on line time. :D
3.7 I didn´t even write it in my notebook but I know EXACTLY what it implies. ;)
