So it was supposed to be a short story. I just crossed 10,000 words and I’m still going. I don’t think I’m going to make it to a full novel and the verdict has been presented already but I’m playing out the love story the rest of the way.
I really need that right now.
I am really down in the dumps for a number of reasons. No, I’m depressed. It has turned cold. We have had snow dumped on us and, though the sun is shining brightly, it’s still icy cold out there and only getting colder which depresses me more. The forecast is now calling for 15cm more snow starting midday today.
Seasonal Affective Disorder at it’s maximum–I hope! I feel like it can’t get any worse!
There is little lifting my spirits right now… but writing is as well as human contact and even my little knitting project.
Being at home where it’s cozy warm allows me to forget what’s going on outside which does, eventually, boost the spirits, just a little bit. Writing a wonderful romance with the backdrop of Christmas is an added bonus because it must have a happy ending!
Change always takes time and it tends to not happen in our time. It doesn’t happen the way we want it to. I think that’s one of the most frustrating parts of all of it!
I wish I could find something that earned me my wages and that makes me thrilled to do it. I don’t care what it is if I’m excited about it! Being holed up in the same office, looking at the same four walls and doing the exact same thing no matter the person in front of me… that’s not me. It never has been. I have always wanted the challenge. I have always the research and the collaboration.
So at this time I will plod on. PLOD is a good word for that. I did get my new business cards last week for my Life Coaching & Essential Oils so that was exciting and I ordered a box of unique items that will be put together for me so it will be a surprise when it reaches me sometime this week. There might be an extra post if it’s awesome and worth sharing! I sure hope so! See… some things DO excite me!
