The New Year has begun and already I’m running late!
Week two and I haven’t written my first journal entry yet.
Actually, I haven’t done much of anything this year and I hope this isn’t an indication of the rest of the new year, but I have the feeling it might be. The elephant in my office is rather small, but his presence is disturbing.
Probably time to remove the constriction of the week numbers, so I can just write when the muse dictates, no regular Journal.
A lot of writers/bloggers have been waxing lyrical about all their plans for2020, but the more I read, the more I realise I cannot be like that anymore.
Something has been changing inside my head and it is time to sort out the rather sweet animal that lurks in the corner of my office!
Towards the end of 2019, I was getting more and more depressed about my stress levels and the lack of activity in my brain. Wondering if I really was getting too old for all this blogging/writing malarkey. So much so, I was beginning to wonder if it was even possible to be a blogger and a writer, or does one always suffer from the competition of the other?
Maybe it should be more about quality, not quantity, shouldn’t it?
This sounds hopeful but exactly what does it mean and how can I apply it to my already complicated life?
The little grey elephant is shaking his head, so no help there…
A lot of people have been looking at their stats, so I staggered over to WP and looked at ours, looking for inspiration or confirmation I suppose.
Our progress since we began blogging has been slow and steady. Pretty impressive for an ageing technophobe, I thought. But maybe not exactly reassuring now that my brain is seriously out to lunch these days.
There is a lot we want to do this year, that’s if I can find out where my get up and go is hiding! I refuse to believe that this could be the year that the elephant wins, even if he is only a little one…
Finish editing Anita’s brilliant new book, Running Moon…
Finish creating the book of Anita’s poetry
And possibly start to write the new story that my character DI Snow has been nagging me about!
And finally, introduce more automation to our website, to give the elephant a few days off…
