Is it just me? Or maybe it is the February blahs? I am feeling utterly devoid of any inspiration or motivation. All my ambitious reading plans for this month are slowly swishing down the drain. I am managing to read but only short works and comics, and while there is nothing wrong with that I have a massive pile of books in progress or almost finished and books I want to start just out there on the horizon waiting (im)patiently, but I feel like I am moving through treacle. Maybe, though, it is spring fever. Did I say it is February? It feels much more like late March. I am not complaining about the much warmer than average weather (though what does this bode for spring and summer, I wonder?), but I think my mind and body are completely confused.
How often do I say/think . . . focus, focus. There is so much to do and accomplish and I can't seem to manage any of it. It seems far too early in the year to be thinking and worrying about this.
So, here is your homework: (don't worry, it's easy, so don't click away just yet) tell me a story. Just one or two lines. It doesn't even have to be a story per se. Tell me something inspiring. Something you are doing or reading or creating or want to do. A name, a quote, a title, an event, a website. Anything at all. Something you are excited about, can't wait for. Something that makes you want to get up from your computer and start doing Right Now.
Personally I would like to finish a book. An actual full length novel. I think I tend to have grander plans and ideas and need to focus on something really small and achievable.
