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.




Sleep Rating

4/10 (I was awake on and off throughout the night)


Waxing Gibbous


Good, though I feel a bit distracted today

What I did

Finished reformatting modules nine and ten, then went back to module one to refine. Now I'm seeing where I need to flesh things out a bit more. This feels like major progress.

Time spent

11:37 a.m.—12:07 p.m. CST, before lunch; 1:05 p.m.—1:42 p.m. CST after lunch and some reading


What I learned today (in haiku form):

Commitment has a / way of inspiring more / commitment in me.
