Its been one of those weeks, where it has been absolutely hectic.
The emotions of what has been happening out in the world have been allowed to creep in and muddle up my brain.
As a part of a way of starving off boredom while in lock down, my writters group has a word they put up everyday and we write a short 50 word structure around that word.
I am not in lock down, i am essential frontline worker, so my days haven’t changed to much, just more thought into how everything is done to keep the residents safe and happy.
I have been timing myself.
Monday it took me just 6 minutes to think up and write my 50 word story.
Tuesday it took me 45 minutes
Wednesday 30 minutes
This morning it only took me 20 minutes.
Monday was a busy day, but i felt rested. 6 minutes was good.
Tuesday i was so frazzled that i passed out on the couch and i struggled to write my 50 words. My brain was on fast forward, i took to much in.
Didnt stop to breath.
Wednesday while still busy, i was realising my deliema about my writting.
Today i had the morning off, i allowed myself to have some quiet time, i did a few things, before i sat down and wrote out my 50 words.
50 words that included the other three words and bringing all the days together.
I felt my brain calm and my day flowed much better.
The key to balance is to delegate and slow down. Not to the point of procrastination though. Lol
Keeping it simple one day at a time
