Seeing the Trees in the Forest


Seeing the Trees in the Forest

Today was (and still is) a successful writing day.

Sometimes I get so caught-up and nervous about what I want to do, I accomplish nothing. (Sorta like, you can’t see the forest for the trees syndrome.)

I decided that since I enjoy the gold stars of completing a task, I would attach that to my being seated and writing.

Every twenty minutes, a gold star.


I have gained great wealth today.

I look to have some more by evening.

We’ll see if this continues to work.

Written for The Daily Post: Forest.   I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows:  (Monday) Life in Retirement; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
