Hey everyone, how are you?
I really need to sit and write this weekend.
It is imperative that I get some writing done this weekend. As the end of the week, I did not get much done at all. I need to write and plan my side of the book chapter so that I am ready for the meeting next week. I mostly need to plan out the themes and do an analysis of them. It doesn’t sound too taxing, but I have just got to sit myself down at my desk and do it. Which is easier said than done at the moment. As like always, my motivation is lacking. It was good after the meeting as the person I am writing the chapter with is a really positive and optimistic person. But as the week went on I was less and less inclined to sit and write. Mostly I am just feeling tired and sleep has been hard this week. I have had to take sleeping tablets for a couple of nights. Plus I have been in pain as well which has not helped.
I also need to read some more as well. As I have books that I have been waiting over a year to read. I did get a bit of reading done in the week and am roughly half way through a fiction book. But I am yet to start the non-fiction book and it is not far off a thousand pages. So, really need to get on with it. I find that at the moment I am reading more during the day than at night or in the evening. I don’t know why that is, it is just a phase I am in. I know that reading helps me to get going in the morning, along with drumming. So, I guess I associate it with getting up. Either way, I still enjoy reading and want to do more and more of it. I’m still on track to hit my eighty book target for the year and I fully intend to hit it. I have not always been a reader. It was the Harry Potter books that got me reading. If it had not been for those books I would not be the person that I am now.
As much as I want to read and write throughout the day. I want to also get in some drumming again and some gaming. Like I have already said, I drum in the morning and it helps to wake me up. I practice for around fifteen to twenty minutes most mornings. I know that I could do more but it is more about the consistency of the practice rathe than doing a lot only a once a week. I also want to get some gaming and get the current game that I am playing (Yakuza 3) completed. I really am trying to get my gaming in the morning and writing in the afternoon routine back into place. But it has turned out to be harrier than I expected. That being said, I am not going to give up on it.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
