And I mean a while.
These past few months have taken a lot out of me. There hasn't been one thing (other than work) that's doing it. It's more that there's been so much, and my energy level just hasn't been able to keep up. I've been wanting to write and read and do all of the things, but more often than not I find myself lying in bed or sitting on the couch, eyes glazed, catching up on old TV shows.
I'm just tired.
So I started taking hot yoga. And that's helped. The next step is to force myself out of bed earlier in the mornings so I can be motivated. When I get up and run or do strength training then write, it changes my day completely. I just have to find the will to get out of bed before the very last minute.
That's the next step.
I've been working my way through a rewrite of my NaNo project. I had a lot of steam. Then I got stuck. My CP read my first 20k and gave me some really helpful feedback. I'm excited to make those changes and move forward, but I just need to do it. I need to force myself to sit down and write. I need to be accountable to my stories, my passions, my dreams. I thought if I told you all about it, that's another group of people who know where I am and how I'm trying to move forward.
I'm going to try to blog more if only in an effort to keep myself accountable--to give updates, to write book reviews, to be a part of the community. You guys are the best, and I'm so thankful for you all!
A few updates. First, I cut my hair.
Now, off to writing!
