On page 22 of the America Airlines Inflight magazine, American Way, J. Rentilly has written an article called Page Churner about author Danielle Steel. Steel in the article said, “If there’s a formula at all to what I do, it’s this: [I] put my butt in my chair every single day.”
I like that.
“I put my butt in my chair every single day.”
Where is my butt sitting today? How do I spend my time? What do I want to do? What do I want to accomplish? It has been years, decades, since I blew out eighteen candles on my birthday angel food cake and wondered what I wanted to be when “I grew up.”
This is the chair my butt will be sitting in today and tomorrow. My husband Nick is presenting on New Language Features in Delphi to the DAPUG computer user group in Denmark. We are staying at Hotel Hesselet on the island of Funen, about one hour from Copenhagen. The Danish hosts were gracious to invite me to accompany my husband on this trip. I am sitting in on his presentations, and working on my computer while he talks about coding in Delphi.
My butt is in my chair today. I am not gardening, cooking, vacuuming, or rearranging the livingroom furniture.
I am writing.
