Only hours of August 2020 remain and what a roller coaster it has been. 

Luckily, I can't remember most of those ups and downs unless I squint my brain REALLY hard and I'm not going to do that. I'm sure every month is full of the same. No month is unique.

I finished re-reading week 4 of The Artist's Way tonight and it really made me feel bad about stopping the morning pages a few days ago so I could take some time off of writing at the end of the month before bad fiction month begins tomorrow. Maybe I do need to be writing the pages each morning and then the fiction some time later in the day. I think the morning pages (or my laptop version of them) do help me stay on track creatively and without them I sort of coast.

It was another rainy, gloomy, ugly day today and I'm glad for the cooler temperatures and the fact that the AC doesn't have to be on all day but I know there are plenty of rainy, gloomy, ugly days to come so it would be nice to have a few more bright ones before we get to fall/winter.

I miss having a Tumblr in the fall because there are so many great fall and winter Tumblr's to reblog but then spring comes and it turns into a to do and that always sucks the life out of it for me.

I finally cleaned up my Twitter today and wondered why I was seeing tweets but not following a lot of people and then remembered my experiment with Twitter lists at the start of the summer. Now I am down to just a few lists and everyone is back to being followed and on the main feed. I also cleared out all of my muted words and phrases. I'm sure I missed a lot over the last year or so because I had a lot of words and phrases on that list!

I wonder what excitement is ahead for us in September. I am ready for the new month. I am not ready for chilly days yet but I am ready to turn that calendar page.
