book watercolor by Helen McLaughlin

Wondering what we're doing here? This explains it, but for the tl;dr crowd (don't worry, I got you):

Beginning February 1st, I’m writing a daily report here, one that documents my progress toward a long-imagined—but not yet executed—dream of creating a small book on wonder (of which I've already written a good portion of the content). I’m committing to showing up to do the work for an hour every day, every single day of the month, and I’m committing to full transparency with you about how that creative hour is spent, for better or for worse. Let's dive in.

What I did

More research (still reading Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal).

Time spent

Today was a largely interactive work day—coaching calls, coaching emails, and a standing weekly get-together in the evening—so breakfast reading was my only opportunity to give thought to the book. Not sure I managed an hour, but the effort was there.


What I learned today (in haiku form):

I am overly / ambitious when it comes to / hours in the day.
