Carol Shields

I’ve been doing so well hitting my targets … until this morning. I’m set to write 1000 words a day, which wasn’t a problem yesterday—a snap! But today it’s almost noon and I’m only at 280 (282, to be exact) and full of confusion. Which reminds me of something Carol Shields once said, that a good day is invariably followed by a bad one. Thank you for that little reminder, Carol: Would you have just kept on going? I think you would have. And I will.
