To top it off, I wasn’t in the best frame of mind last week either, and after spending last weekend with my Golden Bay family, it was hard to settle back into a routine.
So, writing didn’t happen, and I really need to crack on with it. I’m about 1/3 of the way through it, and I need to get it finished by the end of the month, so I can get onto the final edits of Shards of Ice. This week will give me the time I need (hopefully) and I can focus on the story and get another third done this week.
I had hoped to get Shards of Ice out at the end of February early March, but I think I will take the pressure of myself and get it ready for when it is ready. If that’s the end of March, great, if it’s April, that’s fine too. This year isn’t about stressing out.
I am here. That was my statement at the beginning of the year, and I need to keep remembering that. I have a tendency to float away into my little fantasy worlds, but I need to keep my feet and head grounded in reality. Escaping doesn’t help anything, (although I have to admit my fantasy world is getting pretty darned cool to be in), and makes life more complicated. I just need to remember to breathe and remember that “I Am Here” Life isn’t hard, it isn’t scary and I have the power, not anyone else.
Pleased to report that I am still running – yip, I can’t believe it myself, but I am. I love it. And I have plotted out a couple of story ideas. What I need now is the ability to write what is in my mind without having to sit at the computer and then I will be able to have my stories written for me! As if!
I have started my art classes as well, and I think it is going to be fantastic. The art teacher is excited to have me in her class, which is fabulous! I can’t wait to start doing some work.
So here’s to a productive week.
