Back in the saddle

Feb 21, 2013 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

I dunno, lately I’ve really felt like doing absolutely nothing (probably evident from the gap in the blog posts huh?)

Being as outspoken as I am kinda has a lot of drawbacks. I say kinda, because one, I wouldn’t change it for the world, and two, even if I do get kicked into next week occasionally for the stuff that I say, it doesn’t change the idea of saying it.

But I woke up this morning actually wanting to write a blog.  Multiple blogs.
I’ve got a pile to finish up for places like After the Novel and my blog at Book Junkies, and I’ve got PR work to do for clients, and editing, and formatting.
How I’ve affected a bit of a change to my attitude is that I’m not answering emails after 10pm at night unless *I* want to.  I’m not getting back out of bed and hopping ‘quickly’ on my laptop to do something.  Instead, I get a nice hot bath running, if I’m grabbing one, and I watch an episode of Red Dwarf.  Another one in bed, while winding down/reading.
It’s done wonders for my outlook, and when I get to sleep.  I’m still struggling somewhat with waking up at 8am/earlier, but I’m getting better.  It might also be more sunlight, because I spend a lot of time writing in the guest room/office/eventual nursery, but I’m  feeling brighter and getting more done.

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
