Okay so I havent posted on here for a good 4-5 days, I hit almost total exhaustion. What with the extra life stresses that we all encounter from time to time that I have at the moment, add in work, trying to hit over ambitious targets, blogging, trying to read a book that had not seduced me and not having had a decent nights sleep in close to three months all struck home and I think it was thursday that I just lost all momentum with everything. So since then I have just chilled out, aside from work that is. I had a damn good Saturday night around a good friends house and watched Dead Silence which I really enjoyed. Both the company and the film 🙂 Sunday I literally spent the day watching Futurama and relaxing. I havent turned off my mind to this extent in such a long time, maybe that has been the problem. I’m not making the time to relax the mind as well as the body.
I think I’ll give myself another few days rest before getting back into the swing of things.
Getting Back On Track
At the start of the year I set myself a target of 5000 words a week, I’m halving that to a 2500 minimum. That I should be able to hit with my eyes closed. The story that I am working on is still my main project and give me a few days and I’ll dive into it again. After a chat with a mate today I’ve had a few good ideas for the wider universe so I think in a few days I’ll be raring to get going at it again.
As for reading I’ve given up with Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol. It just was not captivating me, maybe it was where I’ve been tired but I’ve since started reading Scott Sigler’s The All-Pro and I’m at page 33 in just two days (I’m a slow reader) But this normally indicates that I am getting into the story.
With this blog, I have some great little ideas that I hope that you will all enjoy reading when I put them up and keep you all up to date on how I’m getting along and my random thoughts.
After a rocky start this year is beginning to look up, how about we all make it a year to look back on 🙂
