Hey everyone, how are you?
After getting back into some writing yesterday, I am going to be writing throughout the weekend.
I managed to get some writing done yesterday and it felt good to be back in that head space. I didn’t do much, but what I did do I was happy with. Most of it was for the book chapter and I did have to spend some time reading and annotating a academic journal that I will be referencing, but it was good. What I need most of all during this time is more focus and motivation. And I know that it will not just come to me, so, I need to make sure that I get up and get writing. As that is the best way to stay on track. It will be baby steps as I am still not in a good place mentally, but I know that it won’t last forever and if I just chip away at it then eventually I will have a chapter segment to upload. The academic journal that I was reading was actually interesting to read and I think it will be very good for the piece that I am currently writing. So, it was a good find.
I will be primarily focusing on the book chapter as I have a meeting again next week. Although, I do want to look at the novel and short story at some point over the weekend. As it will be a nice change from purely writing in a academic fashion. I miss writing fiction, so, looking at the short story and the novel may also help me to get back into writing more frequently. I know that I need to get into a better writing routine, like I have with the drum practice. So, I am thinking of ways that I can do this. I know that once I get it into my routine, it will become easier to do. I really do enjoy writing, I found yesterday, that things did look up when I was writing. Although, it didn’t last when I was finished.
Today, I will also be reading some more as well. I am close to finishing the fiction book that I am reading. It is very good and if you are into football (soccer) then I would recommend it. I have also been reading more of the non-fiction book that I am also reading. It is the autobiography of Nelson Mandela. It is very interesting. I am not too far into it and it is a very long book. It will take me a while to finish it but I am glad that I have started to read it. It is a book that I felt that I should read and I am glad to get the opportunity to do so. I’m hoping that my next book to read will arrive today, it could arrive at anytime from today.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
