What? Me Worry?
Greetings all you members of the IWSG! Last month I was a day late for the meeting. My apologies - I hope that you ate up all the brownies I made and drank the coffee. This week I am entering a period of intense work stress. It is unavoidable but still I feel perfectly fine about it. I'm still waiting to get my latest edits back from my mentor - ahem - and trying not to make up stories about why it isn't here yet.
On a positive note - while I was in Saskatoon taking a training course for work my dear fella created an office for me upstairs. There was one wee bedroom that only fit a bed and a dresser. Now the bed (a single) is jammed into the storage space up here and my desk and chair are nicely situated so that with the doors to this room and the guest bedroom across the hall I can see east to the beach and the Mealy Mountains or west to the large snow covered spruce forest that is our yard. There are things that I will tweak - I need art up that inspires and really a new desk chair (this one kills my back) but that can happen. The thing is that I now have a dedicated space not used for one other activity. A space to write - a room of my own. Calloo Callay oh Frabjous Day!
I'm borrowing an idea from a sketching teacher I had in Skool - his name is Michael Nobbs of Sustainably Creative and he is a wonder of a guy. He suffers from fibrolmyalgia but manages to create wonderful works of art and books by taking it in small bites. I think I will work on my newest book while waiting for the one at my mentors but because I have this intense period of work work - I will only commit to half an hour a day. When my edits are back I will go at it hammer and tongs but until then - slow like the turtle.
How are all of you doing? Road blocks? Traffic lights? bumps? Or smooth sailing?
