That’s me in the middle of the night with a sudden brainstorm (though I did grab my glasses). That’s to fill your nightmares.
Okay, this week. I’ll get my mother’s estate bank account set up and closed and deal with all the little things left over from that. I’ll write every day, at least 200 words. I’ll continue working on my office, which is showing real signs of progress, and keep the forward momentum of decluttering. And I will Clean All Things.
Just kidding. Happiness is lowered expectations makes an excellent motto. Jenny and I both set ourselves up for failure, demanding too much of ourselves and then, of course, falling short. But I really have masses of things I need to do that I haven’t done, like getting the rest of my backlist out in e-form and keeping my website and social media stuff up to date.
And it seems like Monday’s a good day for doing business stuff. I have another blog I have to write every Monday (which I usually forget) and I may as well just put in the time.
So, for this week. Finish up my mother’s business stuff. Move towards getting more of my stuff out in e-form. Write like a fiend. Watch my eating.
And enjoy myself. Either with working on my office or sewing or crocheting or all three of those things. I think decluttering tends to be a happy process, not only because it trims down what I’ve got, but with the stuff I keep I get to enjoy it more. So many fun things to make.
Today I went to church (Palm Sunday, y’know) and then worked on making up a decorating notebook. Which meant I pulled ideas out of magazines I’d been saving for years (and I buy waaaay too many magazines), putting them into those clear page protectors in a big fat notebook (my non-virtual Pinterest) and then putting the rest of the magazines into recycling. So decluttering and pleasure at the same time. Very efficient.
And damn it, spring is going to come or I’m going to explode.
Tomorrow I’ll give a mild rant about the stupid business of publishing, but in the meantime I’ve got my work cut out for me and I’m looking forward to it.
What’s on your agenda?
