My dog is behind me snoring. I’ve got my computer set up in the office. Windows 10 is humming and stable even though i’m still on the pre-release build. I’ve been writing blog posts and thinking about where I want to take the blog. I’m actually quite surprised and happy that I’ve been maintaining my cadence of three posts per week..
But something is nagging me. It’s been on the periphery of my mind for a while like a tick that’s attached to your back after a walk in the woods. You haven’t found it but you know something is wrong. What’s wrong is that I haven’t done any real ‘writing’, and when I say ‘real’ what I mean is research based writing that will go into the self-published long form writing project, i.e. the book.
I need to get back on track with that. It’s not like I haven’t been thinking about it day in and day out. I consciously made a decision to hold off on long form writing via research this fall. It’s there, I’m close, I know it.. but i’m still a few months away. What i’m worried about are the traps.. mowing the big new property, getting furniture.. The kid in college.
It’s September now.. still technically summer but not for long. It’s time to find a way to refocus. I just don’t know what it is yet.
