I've mentioned here before that I am also writing Disney blog entries for Mouse for Less Travel. I enjoy it a lot. Anything that lets me spend time talking about my obsession is great in my book. Plus the fringe benefits are super. I am eight posts away from a free Photopass CD for our next vacation. That's an amazing deal.
The thing is when my head gets funky it's more difficult to write about specific topics. I tend to wander. My head has been funky but I really need to crank these entries out. They have to be done by the end of December but when you take in to account the fact that much of my December will be spent having wires, paddles and batteries placed in my body, I should probably kick it into gear right NOW.
I'm working on this great 4-piece idea right now where I talk about my favorite things in the World using the ABC framework. I know what I'm doing for each letter of the alphabet but the writing is coming painfully slow. I need to just do it.
With a Thanksgiving car ride coming up that won't be altogether pleasant, I'm thinking it's time to haul out my Mickey notebook and try it longhand. Sometimes I do my best work that way. I'm a bit old-fashioned I guess.
Procrastination has always been my middle name but, in the end, I always pull it out.
The good news is with this weeks dilemma about trip dates I probably have another blog entry in the making! I'm glad my craziness is good for something.
Welcome to my refuge :)
Disney has become a daily retreat for me. We may only spend 10 days there a year (more if I'm truly blessed), but I have found that making Mickey a part of my daily life makes me feel much better. So I'm running with it! Luckily I have a patient husband and a laptop computer that allows me to do endless searching and planning. This blog is developing out of that. You are welcome to come along for the ride and offer your advice. I don't claim to be an expert, just a lover of the experience!
Right now whenever a post says "Update" that means it is a 2011 trip update and if you click on the tab with that date on it you can read that update.
