The temperatures here on the Highveld are soaring and it seems like our spring will be very short-lived. However, the trees are green (the jacarandas half purple) and there are birds everywhere in the garden looking a lot happier that a month ago. Also, somewhere in the neighbourhood there is now a rooster — got a shock the first morning it crowed, let me tell you! I’m more used to hadedas in the morning! (This is a hadeda…)
On writing schedules and productivity
On the writing front I’m starting to feel more productive again. It has been one of those times when you feel like the balance you had in your life had a wobble.
In part this happened because of the flares I’ve been having, but I also have had some weekends when I barely rested (which doesn’t help the symptoms) and my anxiety has been through the roof as well.
Good news! The anxiety has settled down to normal levels and I’m doing much better pain-wise. (For first-time visitors, you can check out this post.)
However, I do realise that I have a lot of work to do and to catch up on. But I’ll need to work through it all in a balanced manner — especially since we’re on double deadlines at work.
I’m still busy putting together a schedule, though, so I don’t have any dates set down in stone, except…
… “Forgotten” will be released in time for Halloween!
Second on my list is getting my homework for Porselein finished and sent off. Not doing NaNoWriMo this year has really taken a lot of pressure off!
Tomorrow I’m posting some Flash Fiction, and I’ll have more on “Forgotten” on Wednesday. Huzzah!
