It's almost Friday

Thanks for all the potluck suggestions! I threw them at Alicia, which got her brain working, and she asked me to do stuffed shells, so yay, no more indecision! I would love to do a pulled pork recipe, too, or something Asian like the teriyaki meatballs, so I might end up doing two anyway.

I got some editing done for a friend today, which for some reason put me into a great frame of mind about my own work. I think the fact that I got cover art for the last original story I wrote, too, has me getting excited about the process again. (Seriously, I can't be the only writer who thinks getting art for your story is one of the best things in the world.) Craig made a point of telling me, too, that I need to stop trying to define happiness and success in monetary terms. It's not like my writing has ever been responsible for the mortgage. I need to focus on the joy it gives me and not the obligation of it all.

Fingers crossed this mood sticks around until my editing is completely done.
