S is for Setbacks aka Slips

♫ Slip sliding away…slip sliding away. ♫ Do you have that song by Paul Simon in your head too? Sorry about that. As an addict, I use the words setback and slip interchangeably although I understand and respect not everyone is fond of the word slip. To me, a slip is like when you slip on the ice. You don’t quite fall down on the ground. You try to catch yourself before you do. At least you hope you do. If not, then you have a huge knot on your head to remind you why you’re supposed to be more cautious while treading in dangerous territory.

I became an outlaw - An IWSG Post

What’s up party people? I’ve been gone for a couple of weeks and so much has happened. It’s been great. But this is an Insecure Writer’s Support Group post so I’ll stick to that for today.

I'm going on vacation. Okay, not really. I'm just taking a couple of weeks off from blogging so I can enjoy time with my family. I've been busy doing other very cool things and as the sun starts to set earlier and earlier, I realize it's time to come to terms with the fact that my days sitting in my backyard, under my gazebo, in a pair of shorts, and a t-shirt, and NY Giants flip-flops are numbered. I hate you cold weather. You suck! Or you will suck when you get here. So, I hate you in advance. I'll see everyone in September for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Until then, enjoy what warm weather we have left.
