… or not.
Lately my days have fallen into the ‘or not’ category. Other things have been occupying my time: work craziness, packing, wrist problems, cleaning, yard sales, parents, business trips, dead laptops. None of it is really all that bad, but I’m mentally and physically exhausted. It’s just a little much right now for me to handle all at once.
On the plus side, I’ve rediscovered my love of aimless walks. I can get lost in thoughts and daydreams as I go, and it’s nice to hear the voice in my head again. There’s time to ruminate, puzzle things through, and have debates with my internal self. I’m also more fit than I have been in a while, because I’ve done so much of it and it feels good.
On the down side, I’ve almost gotten run over twice. Um… yes. And I’m starting to get grumpy, the way I always get when I haven’t written in a while. I’m clocking in at more than a month in a half, and it’s driving me nuts.
Sometimes it’s wiser to rest. Sometimes it’s procrastination. This time I can’t figure out which one it is.
Do you write even if you’re exhausted or not feeling all that great?
