"I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." - E.B. White
When I came home from my training session the other day, it was getting pretty late. I had seen the sunset as we drove home but I hadn't been able to really appreciate it. Mark met me at the door and said that he had taken a picture of it for me - for my blog! xo (I think I must be a little bit obsessed.)
It's been a funny week. I've gotten lots and nothing done, I've felt yucky and headachey and then silly and sassy, and I'm not quite sure what is going on. I also realized this morning that despite all of this time on my hands, I have not done any real writing since last week. I am coming to know the signs and symptoms of that now. I have only recently been doing enough regular writing to realize what's happening when I get twitchy. I've been getting glimpses of storylines and whole pages of my books but for some reason I am not stopping and writing them down. I have a deadline for some of my part of our website and I haven't been able to focus on that either. UGH. My kingdom for some clarity!!
So here I sit, mug of jasmine green tea at my elbow, pencil case of Sharpies and coloured pens (another love affair of mine) on one side of my computer, and a to-do pile on the other. I am determined to work through my pile so that tomorrow I can focus on doing some me-writing. I have been digging deeper and deeper into what I really want to say in my work, and I'm enjoying that process, but maybe that's also part of why I have stopped. I don't know.
If you please, I'd love to hear your thoughts ~ How do you deal with inertia? How do you keep focus when there is so much to focus on? How do YOU do it?!
