Raven says, never be afraid to say… “Enough”
You know this week, I was stumped about what to write. I’m tired so very tired. I’ve had revisions for another publisher which although were not major, involved a lot of work. I’ve been away with family and I’ve basically let my brain have a rest.
That’s okay in one way and not in another. Yeah it was good to say, enough I need a rest. But bloody hard to turn off that do nothing button and go with the now get off your ass and get stuck in one, when it was time to do so.
It doesn’t help that I’m tired. Of reading, writing, editing (revisions), being friendly, nice to people, eating, drinking, you name it. I want to crawl into my cave and stay there.
I’ve had enough.
This is not a good state to be in for long. Believe me the longer you do not put your sticky little mitts to the keyboard the harder it gets to actually do it. Which is why after one holiday without my lap top, I never made that mistake again. Have lap top will travel, is my mantra.
Mac and I have travelled the world together, from California to Australia and all points in between. We generally converse every day, even if it is for only a minute or two. I get arsy if we can’t.
With hindsight that’s part of the problem. For three or four days, Mac and I didn’t get a chance to catch up with each other. So I got bolshy and he went silent.
Not a good combo.
Enough. I tried to get back into the swing of things. Mac went on a go slow, my brain went on strike and my coffee intake escalated until I got jittery.
What’s the point of all this? I guess to say that enough can have a lot of meanings. Let it work for you not against you. Enough socialising, enough gin, and enough laziness.
Get on with it.
Now I need to practise what I preach.
