Getting My Steps Back in Order

Today was the dawn of another glorious Monday, and with that comes my musing and plans for the week. Honestly, I have to say my mind has been racing a mile a minute with all the things I have to do (things pertaining to the blog and things that are not related, but equally important.)

Ordered Steps

In the crevices of all the occupied space in my mind are the lines  and phrases of characters of stories that I am currently working on apart from Ascension Graveyard, and those that I have not yet settled down long enough to breathe life into outside of the confines of my imagination.

Needless to say, all of this thinking and all of these task have created quite a struggle for me. I have a TON of pinned up creativity that is desperate to come out! Life has been hectic for over 3 months. Unexpected needs have arisen and with those familiar needs have come sacrifices…time sacrifices.

As a result, what was once a free flowing production line within this blog has, in my view become a mess with things spilling over onto the floor. LET ME CLARIFY. The blog isn’t a mess, MY THOUGHTS ARE! I feel like I have lost control with my balancing act . Which means I need to whip myself back into shape.

To help you grasp what I mean, watch the video below…

Its in times like these that I wish I had a doppelganger…but then it would probably try and knock me off because I am certain I would micromanage. But since I don’t have a doppelganger I will rest assured my life will go on and that I will regain balance, without over stuffing my plate. I simply need to regain my ebb and flow…think of it as riding a bike. No one really forgets how to do so.

SO WHAT IS THE PLAN? The plan is simple, sit down and write, give my 15min to art and freewrites, close out the things that I can without having to pay for it later. Basically, I just need to take a breath and focus. I took the first week of July off and even though the rest was AWESOME and needed, it also allowed for some other distractions…basically I have all these books that I have acquired and I want to read them.  Tragic, I know.

I am confident that by the end of this month everything will be back in its place. If things happen my way, they will be so by the end of this week. Its a bit of wishful thinking so bare with me if you will.

See you all tomorrow with my Writing Prompt results.

Have a creative week.
