After a Friday off riding roller coasters at Kings Island  with my in-laws (including the scariest ride of my life on the new Diamond Back coaster–I swear I had dreams about it all night that night) and a weekend of sweltering heat, I’m back at work. 

My mind is still on that coaster, though. The first drop is like 215 feet and then the subsequent one is nearly 200 feet, followed by several more drops (all scary if  you ask me). I don’t like roller coasters, but I rode several of them on Friday to try to push myself. It’s good to face fears and push yourself outside your comfort zone (something that you can apply to anything in life… your job, your writing…). I’ll make that an inspirational thought for the day: try doing something that frightens you for the experience of facing your fears–in the very least you’ll end up with a story to tell (or to write about).

    Hey, I spent the last two days writing marketing stuff for my book. I’d say that counts as being up at the top of that roller-coaster! 🙂
