The past week I’ve been taking care of a million things. I’m back to work after two weeks off, and there are a ton of projects to take care of around the house. I’ve been too busy and distracted, but things are slowing down and I’d like to get my head space back in the right place.
I need to get the words flowing again. I will start reading again, now that my eyes are doing better, and I think that will help. Audio books just don’t seem to be my thing (I tried!). I’m also considering writing a few pieces of fiction just for myself, before diving back into the novel.
Up till now, I think that all the fiction I’ve written has been written to share, even if it was just for one other person. I don’t think I’ve ever written a piece for myself. I think there could be some pleasure in that, being entirely selfish and self-indulgent. I may do it as an experiment to figure out what I’m really interested in writing.
I won’t ask what you’d write if it were just for yourself. Do you do this? Have you ever done this?
