I love the olympics. I know there are many reasons not to, but even my cynical little heart softens and my nationalistic pride swells with the success of my fellow Canadians. I even enjoy cheering for other nations, especially Latvia. I spent a summer in Latvia several years ago and fell in love with that country. It has a spirit and pride that is infectious. So, go Canada! Go Latvia!
The last week I’ve been riveted to the TV watching Canada win it’s first ever gold on home soil. It’s a gorilla off our country’s back. Now that the pressure’s off, I think we’re set for a great games. Since I’ve been so preoccupied, I’ve neglected my writing and blogging. That I’m about to rectify. I’ve continued writing my micro-novel, I just haven’t been posting chapters. I’ve also decided to post daily updates daily. Weekly updates of 55 words kills the momentum. Daily updates, on the other hand, should be a tad more compelling. That’s my hope, anyway. The next chapter should be posted shortly.
