As a writer, my intention is to NEVER stop writing, like so many of us, however, as most of us are aware, that’s also not always feasible.
I’m in that situation right now… again. I am getting frustrated because I keep going from one thing to the next and have been so incredibly busy that both my Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Course and my writing have paid the price and to what?
Well, I have one week of work left in family practice. The place I have gone every day for the last 12 years of my life. Where it was a home away from home for 11 of those years. Despite starting to feel like it was time to go a few years ago that has intensified enormously in the last 17 months. Now I’m making my move… well, moves, plural.
In the long run my writing is, again, what ends up on hold. I scroll through Facebook and I read posts from authors I follow thanks to Street Team mostly and I read posts from the Practice Makes Perfect team which is all about my Life Coaching and CBT and I frown because I’m currently reading Medical Directives and trying to create descriptions of what I’ll be offering at the Enhanced Wellness Studio in the next little while.
All I can say is that I am hoping that things all settle down and become a little bit ho-hum again and not because I like things boring but the last couple of weeks have had me losing sleep and feeling stressed. I want to get back to a routine and I want to get back to writing. I want to SLOW down. I want to be able to blog every week, or more again and I want to be able to participate in NaNoWriMo in November. I want to be able to come up with some great story ideas and follow them through! In some ways I don’t even care if they are short stories or novels right now.
So, my friends and readers, keep writing, as always… live life but SLOW down.
