Want me in your box?

Good morning! How's everybody doing?
I thought I pop in for a moment, because my appearances here are quite sporadic lately. 
It's not that I've stopped writing, quite the opposite! I'm working away on my book (last week I crossed the 50,000-words mark!), which is taking up most of my writing energy right now. 

If you're missing my weirdness or random thoughts about life, I send out a weekly letter directly into your mailbox if you want me in there. Just sign up →here!
In my latest letter I talk about living in a retirement community that feels like a holiday resort, about 80-year old fitness freaks, and about not settling. Never settle!

Some photos I found on my phone:
Yoga with llamas and dogs
Our newly painted entry hall

Life is good!

  1. Yoga with llamas and dogs - you are the coolest!! And your freshly painted house is so bright and cheerful. I bet you're loving all the colors. :)

    Keep up the great work on your novel!! 50,000 words is an amazing accomplishment.

    1. Thank you! It seemed so unattainable, but it's like a marathon: If you take it one step/word at a time and give it enough stubborn determination, you will get there in the end. Amazing.
      And yes, I'm thrilled with the colours in out home! They make me smile every time I look at them. It's like living in a giant, pastel-coloured Easter egg. I recommend it 😉👯

  2. Congrats on hitting 50,000 words! Crazy!

    1. Thank you so much Emily! I'm more determined than ever to finish it. It's addictive!

  3. Belated congrats for passing the 50k mark on your draft! 🎉 I'm loving the emails too. Good luck with the writing.

    1. Thank you Jane! It feels so good, and by now I'm *almost* at 60,000!!
      Writing is so often so hard, but on the good days, it's the the greatest thrill I've ever experienced!
      I'm so happy that you enjoy reading my emails, I love writing them! It's a more personal setting than a blog post, I feel I can open up even more in them than what I usually do. So liberating!


Thanks for commenting! I always reply to comments here, so check back in a day or two!
