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

Finished reformatting modules six through eight. I'm not letting myself think about how 'good' or 'not good' my writing is; right now, my only objective is to get this thing into a format that allows me to visualize my next steps.

Time spent

10:16 a.m.—11:16 a.m. CST (I've a busy day ahead, so I really only had an hour to spare this morning)


What I learned today (in haiku form):

Diving in today, / before I felt like diving, / was my best idea.
