Marching Forward

Yeah I know, bad pun, but March is coming, and fast! Where did summer go? Did we have a summer?

So, writing… I didn’t get enough done in February. My plan of getting Compromising Positions edited in the month, didn’t happen. Because I have been busy. School is back, so my extra curricular activities are now back too, so I have yoga and pole classes that I go to. I enjoy both very much and I’m pleased to be going back. But it means that I have had to ration my time between work and tiredness, and unfortunately tiredness won out this month. It’s not laziness. I work as a gardener, and often I have to drive to work, which is a 35 or 50 minute drive, depending on where we are working on any particular day. Sometimes the work can be physical, sometimes its problemsolving, and sometimes its an easy day, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not tired at the end of the day.

And to top it all off, I’ve taken on a job to help out a local packhouse for 4 hours in the evening. I’m looking forward to that, but again, its going to cut into my writing time, and will leave me extra tired. So I’m going to have to be really vigilant that I don’t give too much of myself and that I recover.

Which means, that I have this month to really get my organisation skills on spec and actually get the story edited. Which is totally doable, just need to really knuckle down and actually do it.

Life sometimes really kicks my butt, but I’m slowly getting back on my feet. Covid made me extremely tired, and it has taken a while to be back to my pre-covid levels, but even then I was tired a lot. I’ve done blood tests, and nothing is unusual, but a lot of it can be from my depression. And I’ve only just accepted in the last year that its ok to nap. Might be finding more interesting places to nap now.

Anyway, enough procrastinating. Back to writing.

Take care, kia kaha
