I took a little bit of a mental health break yesterday. I got the must-dos done, and then just…well, not much of anything really. I think it did me good.
We have a tendency to go and go and go, sometimes without much thought to where it is we are actually going. I don’t know that I contemplated anything so deep, but for a day, I just was. I ate well, or at least, I ate healthy foods, I had a killer workout (you gotta love The Firm!) and so the day went. It was my day, I took it and used it — well, I used it gently, I can’t say I used it all up — and today my list is quaking in its boots.
Even better, I am feeling a surge of creativity, and this time, it’s writing creativity. I’ve had a long, long dry spell, my fellow readers and writers, a long one, one where my creative landscape turned into the kind of blowing sand only seen in the deserts of Hollywood backlots.
You may have noticed a bit of a return with the short story I posted last week. And what’s more, the writing felt good, it felt comfortable. So more to come?
And look at this! Another item off of my list. Blog post? Done.
