Mental(ly) Challenge(d)

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:42 am

You may have wondered, you may have said it in fact. “This chick is crazy!” Well, I’ve been accused of it many times, and it’s probably somewhat true. Over the last few months I have innundated myself with the physical challenges. I’ve watched my body turn itself from an out-of-shape mess into a sort-of-tuned machine that can slowly churn out miles. It’s not so easy to “pinch-an-inch” anymore.

This traning has been a mental challenge as well. Believing that I can do this, ignorning the part of my brain that screams at me “What the hell are you doing! Stop this crazy running thing!” “Nope.” I tell myself. I feel good. This is worth it to me!. Changing how I look at myself and my capabilities has been a life-changing experience.

There’s been something else that I’ve been wanting to do ever since I can remember. “Oh jeez.” you think. “What’s she going to do now?” I’m going to give myself some more mental exercise. Yes, I’m going to make my first pass at writing a novel. I found this challenge on Raehan’s blog. She was asking for company, and who am I to pass up something like this! Last night over dinner, Nick and I talked about the kind of character that I want to write about and the kind of story I’d like to create. I had already had something in mind from when my sis asked me what kind of novel I would write. I don’t really know where to start, but I think maybe a brief outline and maybe a character sketch? This is going to be fun! I don’t know how serious a story this will end up being. Maybe I’ll have to refer to some of my blog-friends as characters. Uh-oh…he he he. If some of you get a questionnaire from me, don’t be surprised!
