Good morning, my fiery friends! I must admit to you that I totally spaced this post until about 30 minutes ago. My heartfelt apologies to those folks who are used to seeing this early in the AM. Hope you had a great week and have marvelous plans for the weekend.
I am in a very strange space right now regarding my writing. I have started an online copywriting course, and also a free flash fiction course. They are interesting and fun, each in their own way. However, I find that I am now over-thinking everything that I write. Consequently, my other writing has taken a hit. A huge hit. I have only written in my journal three times this week. That is very bad for me because my journal process includes spiritual readings and nine things for which I am grateful on any given day. This sets my day up very well. However, it takes time and really must be done early in the morning. Before I went on vacation, I was getting up at 8 AM, and doing my journal work while taking my meds and having breakfast. During vacation, I was getting up at 7 AM daily, because I had to go to work. I can cook over a camp stove just fine – lighting the thing is my problem – I have a difficult time using the big lighters, and we had no matches. I came home from vacation with an upper respiratory infection, then had antibiotics. Then I started several adventures at once, before I was healthy. OK, I figured that out and had high hopes for this week. However, I got very little accomplished.
My copywriting class is still sitting there, waiting for me. I have not done my journal work today because I realized I needed to do a post. I am very confused about the entire process. Why would starting two different writing classes simultaneously make it harder to write in general? I have no clue. I hope to figure it out soon, I need to be productive next week. If anyone has any ideas about what might help or how I might break through this mess, I’d be happy to hear from you!
