Putting this week behind me

It’s been a crappy week, it really has. I’ve felt flat, drained, uninspired, incapable, incompetent, and many other negative things. Apparently a combination of pregnancy hormones, sleep deprivation and the first week after school holidays ‘recovery time’ combine to bring this unpleasantness. Not to mention the car possibly needing thousands of dollars worth of repairs in order to make it reliable.

Anyways… I’m putting that aside. Shoving down those feelings and fighting back. This week starts today. Saturday. Yes. I know it’s not typical but I don’t care. I need a fresh slate and that slate is the weekend.

Weekends usually aren’t good for writing. But I don’t care about that either. I’m breaking the mold. Things will happen. Stories will have words added to them.

I’ve got two shorts that need the first draft finished, and one that needs an edit/polish before it can be sent off. And I have about a week before the creativity workshop starts. Let’s see if we can get those things lined up nicely. I’m starting to mull over what my objectives will be and am looking forward to sharing those with you all once I’ve pinned them down a little tighter.

It should be heaps of fun, and I have to admit that the buzz being generated and the wonderful people who are opting in for the workshop have really helped me to shift my energy. I’m looking forward to embarking on this little journey with you guys/gals.

And in the meantime, I have work to do.

Oh and a soccer game to get to! It’s Ivy’s first game this morning and its NOT raining which is amazing. I’ll be back later to update and post the obligatory 30 week pregnancy pic. Yes. 30 weeks folks. 10 to go… My bump is feeling very bumpish right about now and my body is starting to protest a little. It’s behaved very nicely so far on the journey though! Much easier than last time around.

Have a good one 🙂

  1. Your empathy really helped tonight, because as my moaning indicates, it’s been a crap week over here, too. Hope the new week (commencing Saturday—noted!) is stellar. Thanks again!

    1. You are completely welcome – sometimes its just nice to know that you’re not alone in a situation! I hope the new week is good for you too, and every one after that as well 🙂

  2. You have only ten weeks left?? Where has the time gone!! So exciting!

    Some weeks are like that, just totally BLAH!! Hope this weekend finds words written and next week one much better… 🙂

    1. thanks Anna, I really hope so too! And yes, only 10 weeks if I go full term. A little longer if I go overdue. I’m at that ‘somewhere in the next 8-12 weeks I’ll have a baby’ stage 🙂
