reverb10 day 13: action

Today's reverb10 prompt comes from author Scott Belsky:

When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?

My current aspiration is to avoid getting through the next three months without getting a severe case of the winter blahs. This is my plan:

*Continue to get exercise, and, beginning December 21 (next week!) notice how, bit by bit, it is getting lighter each day

*Plan a vacation somewhere warm and beachy for end of February/beginning of March (this will be key to my happiness – we haven’t taken a winter vacation in four years) (also, this will be Jane’s first time on a plane, Lord help me)

*Direct a production of one of my all-time favorite comedies, Neil Simon’s Rumors (for the new readers: I am a big time theater nerd – not only do I work in theater, I also do lots of community theater on the side). I am very very excited about this. Auditions will happen in January – expect to hear a lot about this. More than you would ever really want to know, probably.

So yes. My plan to meet my goal is to become excessively, over-the-top, ridiculously busy to avoid the winter blues. Wahoo!

Ahh, a fellow theater nerd! I am an elementary school theater teacher and lover of the theatrical arts, too!

This sounds like a great plan, and I love how you broke it into action steps!

Happy Writing (and warding off the winter blahs!)

Good plan! So many of us suffer from the winter blahs. We could all take a page from your book.
