It hasn’t been a good week of writing or editing,as I have been a bit poorly.
I have been polishing up a whole new set of schedules for 2015. Having decided last year I needed more time just to relax, to leave the machine and catch up on other interests, to improve my decidedly up and down health. I have had to structure days in a way that has always been anathema to me. I have always winged it from preference. Routines do not suit me. I can do them, have had to at certain points of my life. It is not the way I envisaged my retirement, but then life is like that:)
I am being fairly good at keeping away from the keyboard for hours at a time. I don’t keep to the times I wrote down but I do get up and do other things at fairly regular intervals. I have managed to prise myself away from the keyboard for at least three hours every evening. Sometimes longer if I get stuck into a good read. I have designated one day for stuff like crafts, reading and later on the gardening.
What I am not so good at is keeping to what I plan to write that day, I wander from one to another. Training an undisciplined mind is hard! Mostly by the end of the week I have achieved most of what I wanted to do but more organization is needed.
Anyway my talk/discussion with the reading group was great fun I didn’t need to worry. The discussion flowed up and around, over and under, every aspect and more of Ellen’s Tale non stop.
Since then though have been under the weather, slight earache, throat and a lot of lethargy. So reading mostly this week. No editing done.
Hope everyone has had a more fruitful week that I have. All the best for coming week.
