Friday JohnKu – AKA- TGIF


Look at that. We only have the workday ahead, and then it is the weekend (woo woo). This has been a busy week and seemed to fly by quickly. I was very pleased to finally add some new words to my WIP. Between editing and trying to move additional books, it has been a challenge. I have also been doing some catch-up work around the house and think I’m pretty much on top of it. So I’m back to my 1000 words a day requirement, and it does feel good.

Today’s JohnKu talks about doing the things you must do and the things you like to do.

Tasks by John W. Howell © 2017

Some we like to do,

Others are like pulling teeth. . .

We need a balance.

I hope you have a great weekend.

    Love the photo…and the thought of the weekend rapidly approaching. “Task” is a great reminder – balance is needed. 🙂

    1. Yes. Something I’m not good at doing. Thanks, Gwen.

  2. Awesome post, and even more awesome photo! Good stuff! You’ve got my follow. Check out my comedy blog and give it a follow if you like it!

  3. Great picture for Friday, John. It’s good to hear you’re caught up. Have a great weekend. 🙂 — Suzanne

    1. Ha ha ha. Might be a Moscow Mule. 😀

      1. I had one of those recently. Tasty.

  6. Excellent advice about balance, John! Let’s see… I’ll stick these three task reminders on the left side of my computer, and the other three on the right side! Presto… Balance! Why didn’t I think of that?

    1. Excellent way to handle those, John. 😀

  7. Ah, balance … can you define that? lol 🙂 What I don’t like is when writing is like pulling teeth, but nobody said it would be easy. Happy Friday, John!

    1. Well those hat said it would be easy have never done it. 😀

  8. Love the donkey picture. I can relate to him.

    1. I thought the donkey was pretty funny too. Looked like a Friday to me. 😀

    And it sure as hell helps when you’re standing on a sawhorse… Which I will never do again, by the way.
