I've been bad and have not checked in for a week. I sort of have a legitimate excuse. I had a bad stomach virus that had me down for a week. But I also have to be honest and say that I have been less than motivated on journaling and the other tasks I set for myself. However, during my down time I was watching a documentary and was inspired with a new idea. I have begun research on it and I have a couple of books to pick up at the library...which I will do tomorrow. This subject is something that has fascinated me for a long time and I'm trying to determine how best to tell the story without making it a rehash. A bit of a challenge, but I think I can work it out. I'm kicking around some ideas and I think my research will help. So, in the next couple of days, I'm going to pick up my research materials at the library, continue my research on the new idea, and re-evaluate my goals as far as time spent researching and a new, non-fail approach to journaling. I will have my new 'system' for you on Wednesday.
