A busy week at work, followed by a full weekend, has left me with little time to write. Work has been so hectic it leaves me too drained at the end of the day to be able to organize my thoughts. By the time Friday night rolled around I was more than ready to cut loose. Apparently cutting loose involves going to bed at 9:30 so you can wake up early to clean the house in preparation for out of town guests.

Between the cleaning, the errands, the cooking  and the visiting with friends I woke up this morning determined to make some time to write. After a few false starts, I was able to get a first draft down of a piece I've been mulling around in my head for weeks. I get my best work done in the morning, a cup of tea and some peace and quiet make a fine muse.

An afternoon phone conversation with my dad, one of my most ardent supporters, covered important topics like shipping container houses, my writing and the importance of naps. Our chat left me with a little more motivation to buckle down, write more and think less. But first I think I need a nap.

  1. This has been my life the last couple of weeks. It does feel good to get back to doing something just because you want to, but boy, that's sometimes a lot easier said than done.

    1. Isn't always easier said than done, happily today I was able to make time for everything I wanted/needed to.
