Today's Instagram prompt is heartfelt. As a diehard gadget girl, I've been teaching myself all of the tech I need to spread my message that writing is fun.  I've learned Wordpress, Woocommerce, Drip, Stripe, and probably a dozen other tools.  The ridiculous part is that's it's been so time consuming that it's delayed my ability to spread the writing cheer.  From a purely practical point of view, I would have been better off increasing my tutoring hours and hiring a tech whiz.  But, I would have missed out on my "Booyah!" moment.

I've been banging my head against the wall for the last week trying to fix a broken link.  It was literally (as in not figuratively- get it?) the last piece of the puzzle that I needed to make my Rube Goldberg type set up work.   Finally, the lightbulb went off and I figured it out.

The rush was like catching the right wave.  I just wanted to jump up and down and scream, "I did it!"  Like surfing, there are many more waves coming my way. It's like a caught a two-footer while there are people having jet skis tow them in to the real waves, but surfing is surfing and I'm going to make the most of the ride.

For the record, the first interjection that came to mind was "Yes!" and the second was "Booyah!" Of course, a fist pump doesn't count as an interjection, but I did that, too.

If anyone is wondering who Rube Goldberg was, here's Jimmy Kimmel's take.
