I opted for the gym as it’s equally important to exercise my body as well as my mind and I can happily say, from a vigorous workout, I’ve been rethinking project robot.
Its nothing major but the first draft, I think, needs a bit of shuffling around somewhat so instead of just rewriting the sentences I should map it all out again and from that framework of view find the best way to get to the end.
As a short story it should still be accomplished within a couple of weeks.
Tonight I’m scheduled in for a fitness class at the gym, but I’m in 2 minds over it. This is due to last nights wasted writing session. I wanted to write, but the laptop had had an update, and so for nearly an hour I sat there and waited patiently.
By the time it had finished I was very tired and so headed off to bed instead.
I still very much want to write tonight, but the gym is also calling too. What to do, what to do?
So yesterday I wrote a list of things I want to do more of vs the things I have to do daily and am hoping by focusing on the ‘ ‘wants’ they will slowly shift priority and become part of a normal routine.
As my Monday is drawing to a close I’m proudly able to say I have done the following today:
Gone to the gym
Listened to some music
And I’ve done nothing from the list of typical daily things!
I’m mostly proud for doing the meditation because at the gym I felt like I was majorly daydreaming and not focusing properly on what my body was doing. It felt like my head and body were out of sync. So I searched youtube and found a guided meditation which made me feel centred, refreshed and back in control. As a side note can anyone recommend any good medititions apps or youtube videos? I tend to only look for them when I desperately need them and get myself more worked up!
Because I felt really out of sync I could not think about writing my story tonight. It is only Monday so there’s plenty of opportunity to do that this week. I hope I won’t get down in the dumps over it.
Tonight I won’t be writing. I need to go to the gym as well as do a few other bits and bobs around the house so I need to have a break from writing.
I will give my current story a read over and make some notes on where I feel it’s going wrong.
As a side note…
If you can’t already tell I’m hooked/addicted to WordPress, I don’t know why I didn’t join it sooner. Is it bad of me to say I feel it’s more important to keep at my blog than my book writing?
