June 12th! Already! We’re nearly halfway through June! Can you believe it? It’s been so cool around these parts that it hasn’t even felt like summer is on it’s way.
I had a major breakthrough about my novel last weekend, so I’m eager to get to work on that and I have, as a matter of fact, been furiously writing down notes about it. Secretly while at work.
Shh! Don’t tell anyone. But it’s only when I don’t have anything to do. I swear! Nothing makes the long hours at work go slower than to be doing nothing.
I’m also working on a novella and a short story. Both are due June 30th. I’m pretty sure I’ll make both deadlines but I have to be extra careful with my weekends as they go by so fast and I hardly ever get as much done as I’d like to.
I have a feeling my temporary work assignment will be ending in a week or two so I may wind up back in a state of unemployment, which, of course, offers more free time to write but which, of course, also offers the possibility of no money coming in. Not a situation I want to think about just right now.
So, I don’t.
Yep, that’s pretty much how I live my life now.
I ask myself, where I am? And I answer, here. And I ask myself, what time is it? And I answer, now. So that’s pretty much where I try to be at all times.
In the here and now.
Can’t do anything about what’s past and have no idea what’s ahead. All I can deal with effectively is the here and now.
Ciao for now! 🙂
