I have been working on an assignment for my writing class. It's a non-fiction article and as much as I love my topic, I was struggling.

The reason, RESEARCH! I am coming off a summer of four children, a dog, a husband, and no fixed schedule. Now it's time to buckle down and get back to work.

I enjoy writing fiction. Usually a phrase or an idea will come to me out of nowhere and I'll race to get it on paper. That wasn't happening with this non-fiction article. I was dreading it.

I went to the library the other day and checked out some books on my topic. I got a notebook, pen. and a cup of tea. Then I got comfy and began researching one of my favorites subjects. I am now LOVING IT! My notebook is getting filled and I'm almost ready to start writing again.

Moral to my story? Procrastination is the enemy. Just jump in and have fun!


  1. Go Christine! You've proven that research can be fun too!

  2. I like your signature! And your moral!
