I’m linking up with Heather today for my first ever Just Write.
All I hear are the soft clicks of a colleague typing on her laptop and a muffled conversation to my left. I am sitting in my brown cubicle in silence. No urgent tasks remain for me to complete.
I pull out my notebook from BlogHer. I examine my proposal. I begin my research. Once I am satisfied I have verified that my proposal will fill a need, I open up PowerPoint. If you are going to pitch a proposal in my company, it has to be PowerPoint. I pull up a blank template and watch the blinking cursor.
Suddenly I remember my index cards that have information I need. I reach into my purse and peer at my tight cursive. I take a deep breath, and I began typing up my proposal. Some days I want to save the world, and I become despondent that a goal like that is too lofty. Today I want to change my corner of the world. I took the first steps to do just that.
