Being busy bee means less creativeness for me

Looks like I’ll be putting the creative stuffs on the back burner for a bit, having kind of accidentally signed myself up for a bit of a crazy amount of copy work until the end of the month. But it’s ok! The anti-drama monkey will keep me sane by reminding me not to pay attention to the mini-dramas unrolling around me, as will the promise of a whole flat to myself come May will put a smile on my face despite the teeth grinding .

So here’s the promise to myself: 20 days of flat out copy work, packing and cleaning – and at the end of it I can read back the latest completed draft of the WIP. And eat lots of chocolate and drink lots of coffee. And lie in the hall of the new flat – just ’cause I’ll be able to. And start the new story that’s slowly fermenting. It’ll be worth it.

  1. Thank God for the anti-drama monkey 🙂 Twenty days is not a very long time and sometimes doing something unrelated to your WIP can actually help clear your head, give you a fresh set of eyes for your revision!
    And all those chocolate bars- they will be worth to wait 🙂

    • you’re totally right Lua (Don’t tell anyone that I ate a creme egg about two seconds before writing this ok ;)) a break will be a good thing. For the story at least, if not for my sanity!

  2. Aw, I dunno why but reading this made me miss you. Even more, that is.

    I hope this month of work goes okay for you and you don’t get too copy overloaded. I know what it’s like. But it WILL be worth it, you’re completely right. And I hope you have an amazing time lying in the hallway of your new place. Sometimes, you just gotta lie on the floor.

  3. Good luck girl! I’m with you on this one. I have to write a monster paper a weekend until the end of the semester which means my brain will be too exhausted to pump out anything creative. 😦 We’ll get back to it soon!!
