It feels good to get froggy. Last Saturday, I finally put a story of mine on a powerpoint presentation for some of the classrooms I work in. The essence of being froggy is the feeling of accomplishment. Not just goal setting or having determination, but actually working hard at it! When I work hard at something and jump high, I can see and feel the results of my effort right before my eyes. I already revised my latest story from one critique. I was froggy. What I really need to get froggy on is my nonfiction proposal. I don't know why I keep procrastinating. It's an awesome project, so getting froggy about it will feel awesome, too. I just have to have the determination of a frog that wants to eat a fly for dinner. My dinner will be to see my book in print, okay, that will be dessert. Dinner will be when it's accepted for publication and the editor contacts me to say so. So, let's get FROGGY!!!
