Shoe Patterns

My son wears through sneakers as if he were a marathon hiker. He’s not. While his job is all on his feet, it’s not through brambles or barbed wire, but you wouldn’t know it.

My husband’s shoes seem to give out with a scuffed and sad ease. A soft death.

My daughter has enough shoes that they rarely wear through, and I tend to make shoes last even though I wear the same pair each day.

Everybody has a different way of walking, standing, using a wheelchair, where they put their foot when they drive, how they sit on the bus – whatever. It all adds up to different patterns of stress.

Some of you are doing NaNoWriMo, and some of you are not. Everyone’s different, and all paths are valid.

If you aren’t participating this year, how are you coping with all the fuss?

If you are participating, I hope you have a bonus word first day and start tomorrow with a cushion of momentum!

Happy November 1st!

  1. I have one pair of shoes that I wear for everything. I walk a lot, as well. When they wear out (about once a year) I take them to the store and buy the same ones again. Boring, eh?

    I’m not doing nano. As you know, I’d never come close to that kind of writing pace. 🙁

    But best of luck to everyone else!

    1. I don’t normally. I think that’s part of the fun. You tell yourself you can do anything for 30 days, and if you fail, you still have a bunch of work you wouldn’t have had otherwise.

      I would love you to try it next year. Or you could do Camp NaNoWriMo in the summer! You set your own goals there. That might be a great place to start and gain a habit.
