So, I have strayed away from things again. I have been sucked in by the poetry demons (which I love) and I need to let go a little. Not completely. But if I want to get the damn book finished then I need to make some changes.
There will be a bit of a return to the old format, where in which I have days where I do certain things. And I will try to use my Sundays to retell the week to keep myself accountable.
I had planned on trying to go back to my social media (mainly the hell that is Instagram) but I don’t think that is going to happen. Social media is like a child. You have to feed it and pay attention to it if you want it to grow… and my time and love and effort is better spent on things/people that I actually give a shit about.
If you have been here a while, you will know that this is not a new thing. My reorganising of my online presence and writing life is a constant battle. One that I lose from time to time. But the point is that I keep getting up and continuing. And this time I didn’t really lose. I am really proud of a lot of the work I have done over the past few months. I have written poetry that I didn’t know I could. But my ultimate goal is this next novel so I have to redirect some focus on that.
I am currently so happy with my life that my aspirations have drifted a little. But I guess, ultimately, if there is happiness then the rest will just sort itself out. Because isn’t that the real aspiration. Happiness.
