There are still a few days of 2010 left to me, and while I am sick, as well as some of the littles in the house (oh, and Hubby, of course), I’m still wanting to get a lot done. I’m feeling the doldrums setting in, despite the nice weather outside and the only way to push through is with a flurry of activity – even if what I’d prefer to do is lie in bed in peace (we all know that never happens when you have kids anyways, so might as well preserve the fantasy).
So this morning all the washing is on the line, the cardboard we’ve been collecting is filling the boot of the car (seriously, we’ve been hoarding some of this for recycling for almost a year…), and I’m feeling slightly better already.
Oh and now I’ve shoved the dogs couch outside and cleaned the porch area that will be my office – tearful, but good. I’m excited to get my desk out there and see how it all feels. Having my own space.
But what comes next? I have a lot of little tasks to do around the house, but nothing specifically set up for writing for the next few days. I’ve got goals ready to kick off come January and while I could start now, there is something about starting a new year with a new project that I don’t want to miss out on.
I didn’t get any of the work done that I wanted to while I was away, and that’s okay – so I could finish Mommy Ears, or revise some shorts, but nothing is really grabbing me. It’s a time of rest perhaps? I time of letting my ideas brew and gain momentum until I start to write again?
I really hope so, because the reality is that outside of Mocha Nihilism, and Saving Tomorrow, there are no new ideas. Nothing shiny has cropped up in quite some time, and while I know that is mostly due to overload and exhaustion, it would be nice if something were there, wanting to tempt me from my path.
