The Olympics are over, and I suspect I'm not the only one with an Olympic sort of ennui. My love of sport, competition, excellence, sportsmanship, etc. has been sated to the full. I've watched untold hours of Olympic coverage, reveled in the stories of the athletes, the world records, the triumphs and tragedies, sense of world community and national rivalry.
But now it's time to gear up and get some work done. I've got a new story half fleshed out. I've walked through the first half of it with my sounding board, Heather Vetsch, and I need to get a proposal cooking. I'm intrigued by this story-line. It's got more mystery than I've been written in the past, so I'm feeling my way through the details.
Time to shake off that Olympic hangover and get back to real life!
How about you? Anything you're hoping to accomplish before summer comes to an end?
