My Energy Levels

My Energy Levels

All my current writing energy is being put into Mosaic Minds stories.

I have a lot of plans rolling around in my head as well that are preventing me from squeezing any more creativity that I already am out of my head.

I think I am in denial about a bit of post-travel depression. D reminded me last night that at this time last year, we were in the Greek Islands. I felt my heart sink into my stomach. I wasn't expecting that.

I need to remain focussed on the long term goal otherwise I may end up stuck and frustrated like I was 2 years ago.

It's not a place I want to be.

I know I will get out of this slump but there are so many things I want to happen LIKE NOW and have little patience.

Wish I could write something a little more upbeat but at the moment, my brain is sifting through the negativity to find the positive.

I am a motivated person. I am highly enthusiastic. I am just dreadfully afraid of falling back into old habits.

And so, my negative skeptical side must keep me in check.

I'm baaaack!

Hard to believe that last entry was almost three years ago!

Many moons ago, I set this blog up to chronicle our journeys. Once we were grounded a bit more, it kind of lost its way. I spent some time working on my writing offline, taking on different projects and working full time as a technical writer. It was difficult to keep this blog up. Not for any real reason I can articulate. Just had my words redirected to other avenues for awhile.
But, I'm pleased to say, after over a decade away, we are back in the UK, living and re-experiencing a place we enjoyed in the mid-2000s.
Social media has certainly changed the way we look at blogs. I'm excited to navigate this new world, explore just what people post, what people read. What's better on one of the many new platforms and what's still appropriate for good old fashioned blogosphere.
For now, here's a peek at where we're staying -- in a pretty little village just outside of Oxford. A temporary home for now but suc…

Room with a view

We've been in our new home for 10 weeks nos and it's feeling more like home than ever.Every day, I sit down at my desk to the most inspiring view.A collection of stories is building. This space makes it easy to gather my thoughts.I've been consumed with a few work projects and am looking forward to collecting my thoughts soon.Writers club is still going ... I was on a bit of a hiatus but hope to get into my routine for fall. For now, boat gazing is helping.


My regular journaling has significantly improved my mood.

I've been taking some time, twice a week, to polish existing content as well as develop my floating ideas into a more concrete outline.

I've felt this focus for the last 6 weeks that I can't really describe properly. It's as though I've shifted my thinking totally. Writing is my craft. It's what I do, who I am, how I exist. It's like my mojo.

So, I guess, I've gotten my mojo back. My focus, my purpose, my essence.

And it feels good. It feels right. And I am almost understanding more now why the best writing of the best writers happens when they are older, more polished, more experienced, more rough around the edges.

When all the youthful spark has been extinguished and what's left, is the determined embers, that will not go softly, that will not die out. That will continue, fervently glowing, creating warmth and not just drawing attention from its flicker, but pulling people in by it's so…
