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

Completed a mockup of the second and third modules (layout, formatting, fonts, etc.). Since I created a basic template yesterday, this didn't even take a full hour to do. I'm not going to split hairs about the hour, though—we were away from home the entire day, so I'm glad to have accomplished so much in just 40 minutes this evening (when all I really wanted to do was pick up the novel I'm reading and lounge on the couch).

Time spent

7:34 p.m.—8:16 p.m. CST


What I learned today (in haiku form):

Relationships are / my priority; still, there's / time for this goal, too.
