Too much

Too much has been happening and I love it, except it means I’m not writing like I want to be. I’m excited. I’m distracted. The backlog of the things I want to document is significant but am going to try this first: I need to whine. I need to get this block out, whatever it is. Something is holding me back.

I suspect that the something starts with a ‘Sh’ and ends in a ‘eri’. She’s overwhelming herself with all her Beautiful Ideas. I daydream, I fantasize, I project, I wonder, I speculate, I brainstorm, I over-schedule and I under-rest. My predictable Follow Through is the fat kid at the back of gym class, red-faced, huffing and puffing, struggling beyond struggle to keep pace with all the Beautiful Ideas. Every so often she sprints ahead and is able to connect with a Beautiful Idea, but it isn’t sustainable. There are SO MANY Beautiful Ideas to catch. 

How do you catch your Beautiful Ideas?

  1. My confidence in your ability to do what you set your mind to is unwavering.

  2. I use a dart gun to knock it out of the tree and then I wrap it up in a tarp.

  3. When is your set aside writing time every week?

    • I don’t even know what that means. (I do, but it’s beyond my comprehension.) I tend to write at night after the kids go to bed or in the hour or so from when they leave for school and I mosey into work. That said, I’ve let a lot of interesting things infringe on those times. It’s often, “Do I finish this conversation or do I finish this blog post.” I’ve got some fascinating projects on the horizon that have me happy-nervous, so it may be that I’ve thrust myself into full-fledged self-sabatoge. At least with writing. And running. And yoga. And eating green things. ::sigh:: It’s all related, I assume.
