Back at the day job today — but not back to the grind at all. Instead, I’m un-grinding, gently moving into a new rhythm.
Like most creative folks I know, I’ve got a day job that helps pay the bills; I had a week and a half off between the Xmas and NYE holidays. I had big plans for that time off: I wrote up a schedule that involved going to bed every night at 9 so I could wake up at 4 and do my morning pages, then a blog post, then spend a couple hours on one of the many writing projects that I have indefinitely on hold.Then, I’d take a break for lunch, and afterwards maybe I’d spend some time typing up the writing I did in the morning. I’d blog! Organize my office! Get all my projects into very useful timelines!
Guess what happened? Of course! I got sick.
