Dear Journal (and blogtober readers),
After months of burnout, after months of waiting till tomorrow, it’s finally the day, the last day of the work week in just 12hrs and then it’s a whopping month off. I plan to spend time with the new baby coming soon, with family, time for reading/writing, and of course, rest. I’m so ready, so burned out, I barely have energy to get excited. But I am.
I picked up a new book today, Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willing and Leif Babin. It’s about how U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win. Should be a great read. Thanks to Casey Neistat’s recent video I found out about the book. Let’s see if it makes my October Favourites list.
I really need to remember the difference between fiction and non-fiction. You’d think as a writer I’d know this stuff. Non-fiction is the real life stuff, right? And fiction is like, novels? I think that’s it.
The wife is officially a stay at home Mum from today. She had a carrot cake at work for her last day, a piece is waiting for me on the coffee table alongside my night coffee.
