So What Now?

It's cold.  There's about five inches of powdery snow on the ground outside, and a projection that we won't break above the freezing mark until Friday at best.

It feels a LOT like last year.  I do not want to feel like last year.

We're almost a year in, and I'm beginning to wonder...what next?  What do I do next? Other than the day-to-day cleaning, feeding, caring, working normal stuff?

Some people have suggested I keep writing, and expand into a book or other creative endeavor.  In my fertile imagination, I see me at the end result, and it looks accomplished.  I mean, it looks like I have satisfied myself with an accomplishment.

The problem is...I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO GO FROM HERE TO THERE.

None.  Zilch.  Idea-free zone here around me.

I know a lot of creative people, both in spirit and in practice.  Share your ideas with me, please, and maybe you can lay a stepping stone down that will help me get from where I am to accomplishment.

How about a play? There are a few folks in your immediate family who might have some pointers. Your story would make a compelling piece of theater, in my opinion.

Jen, the people in my family have already asked me to write a one-woman-show. I'm better in an oral tradition than a written one. What I need is software that will listen to me and transcribe the nonsense I say and then make it pretty for me. On top of all the other stuff. Hmmmm.
