First, let me say thank you to everyone who shared tips (including drinking, reading, scheduling and wailing) and/or commiserated with me on how I might find a new writing routine in my life. I also want to give a special thanks to the parents who commented — not because life is “better” or “worse” as a parent — but because it involves a whole ‘nother flavor of busy. And crazy…as I learned after receiving not one, but two calls from the school nurse last week.
(Fortunately, outside of Drama Girl’s fat lip and chipped back-o’-her-tooth, plus T-Rex’s fainting-on-a-field-trip drama, everyone was fine. Even me.)
Second, I am fine…but events in the last month ended up really stressing my nerves, so I’ve spent the last few nights trying to catch up on sleep and sanity. It’s working, but I’m going to keep at it a little longer. I’ll be back next week. In the meantime, I’m implementing my new beyond-blogging writing logistics and I’ve already ordered The War of Art.
You know, because I need one more thing to do/read. Thanks. 😉
