Just writing…

Today it’s cloudy but not snowy, and as of this moment, we still have a hole in our basement wall, and I’m just feeling sort of…blah. It’s been a stressful week. We ran out of propane yesterday, a problem which has since been sorted but was terribly uncomfortable for the better part of the day. And we’ve both been busy and trying to balance work things with the house chaos.

All of that to say – today, I’m just going to write.

I’m just going to write, because aside from reading, it’s the thing that makes me happiest. The writing zone – that spot when you’re really into what you’re creating, and the rest of the world just sort of melts away – that’s one of my very favorite places. I love the feeling of letting everything else go, and just being carried away by words and by story. It’s magic. There’s nothing else quite like it, and no other place I’d rather be right now.

And it comes with the advantage of marking some stuff off of my very long and ever-growing to-do list! I’m working on a script for an upcoming podcast episode, and a longer-form fiction that I have some ambitious plans for, and of course, January’s short story, which I think will be very inspired by the winter season and the quiet, cold time in between Christmas and spring.

So, that’s me. Just writing. And also there’s coffee. As Fridays go, this one’s not so bad. And hopefully by the end of it, I’ll have some good stuff down on the page.

Happy Friday, and if you’re spending time writing today, too, then I hope that it’s fun and rewarding, and that you create something amazing!

  1. I’m sorry things have been rather full-on and stressful. Having a hole in a wall of your house is enough of a stressor, let alone running out of propane and all the other things going on in your lives on top. It’s hard to get away from these sorts of things because they still need to be resolved, like how I think I need a break because there’s too much to do, but taking time out won’t get the stuff done on the never-ending to-do list. Sometimes the best thing we can do though is to take some time to relax, vent, be creative, indulge in simple joys. High stress isn’t going to help anyone but it’s easier said than done to try to manage it or be kinder to ourselves.

    I’m glad you took action to just write the day you published this post. I hope you can make more executive decisions to take more time for yourself to do the things you enjoy or to simply get a break from the situation.

    I hope the week ahead is a brighter one lovely.

    • Thank you so much! 🙂 It’s off to a good start, this week. I went to bed early last night, and slept in this morning, and just had a bit of a reset, and I think it’s helped. And I’ve resolved to focus on writing this week, come what may. Here’s hoping it’s good for me, and for you, too!
