So last week I said I was going to make some changes and get back into a few habits I had slipped out of. Guess what? We have success.
Since Monday of last week I have walked Tuesday-Thursday then extra miles on Sat. Yesterday was a breaker with cleaning and rearranging the living room so I can have a bit more room to do indoor exercises. I really didn’t want to get up this morning but once I was awake, things seemed much better. Starting out I am taking it easy. I have some knee and hip problems so the first two weeks are only about 2-3 miles a day. Next week I will be doing 3-4 then adding some light jogging after that.
The writing has finally started flowing again. I guess there is something about walking, such a mindless activity, that can allow your creative juices to flow. Or at least mine anyway. Again, I have written at least 500 words a day on one manuscript or another (usually more than one). Dragon Masque is edging 38,000. “Longing”, my submission for the Rigor Amortis project was finally rejected. It has gone through a few rewrites already but I am still unhappy with it. The tone is just still slightly off. I have a couple of friends looking at it. I think most of the second or middle part needs reworking. Other projects: Carnival, the May Shock Totem piece, and Reform Row are still in the planning/outlining stage. All total, including my daily blog entries, I have put about 1,000 words (not work related) on pages a day.
So it’s been a good week. How has yours been? Progress? Let’s share.
