I was sitting here today thinking about what to post and what to start working on for an upcoming submission date for my critique group and found myself, as usual, feeling overwhelmed with everything around me that needed to be addressed...piles of laundry, dishes in the sink, dust bunnies flitting about and work to do for my "real job." I happened to glance down at my calendar to see what is on my TTD list in the next couple days and read the weekly dose of inspiration. It was a duh moment...
"Life can be fascinating, frustrating, intriguing, even frightening at times. However, the one thing it shouldn't be is overwhelming. As human beings, we have been endowed with all the tools required to deal with life, and whatever it throws at us."
It wasn't a quote attributable to any particular person, just a P.O.V. (point of view) saying on organization. While I am a highly organized person, per se, I find I can spend a great deal of time organizing my life away rather than focusing on a given task. These words above gave me renewed hope to take things as they come, do what I can in dealing with life (and it's interruptions in my writing world) and focus on the task at hand. I'm still not exactly sure what I am going to sit down and write, but I've a few ideas perculating at the moment I will try to shape into a functional WIP.
Happy weekend and writing to all!
