I’m still working on my store and my novel; and I’ve not been checking in here because I’ve found that taking the next step is easier if I don’t let myself ask “is this a silly idea?” “oh, i need to do X and Y- which should I do first” or “oh i’ll just tell them what I’m doing today and then work…”.
So I’m over 32,000 words of my novel; with a plot in place [though i need to pad it out with sub-plots, else won’t reach my minimum word count] and I’m almost ready to open up shop.
I’m also trying to get back into some of my old rituals – simple movements like yoga when I wake up [or shivanata, now i’ve discovered it] and drinking half a glass of water first thing. I’m journalling and I’ve got back into reading lately – read 5 books in just over a fortnight: Hurrah for taking time out each evening to read and to write.
So, let’s check in with this~
