Well, the calendar has changed over to March, but you wouldn’t know it from here. It’s been another bitterly cold week, and as I look out my windows, more snow is falling. It’s a depressing time of year, but I’m trying not to let it get the best of me.
I haven’t made much progress on my goals, which is why I haven’t checked in for the past couple of weeks. I got a flu virus that has really slowed me down, and what energy I’ve had has been devoted to working for others (my part-time gig at the radio station) and some performances. The performances last weekend went really well, and my cough is slowly fading. I’ve taken time these past couple of days to rest and recuperate.
The good news is that I’ve been very accepting of the way things are, rather than beating myself up over what I’m not getting done. There is an ebb and flow to life and creativity, and I know that the quiet, seemingly non-productive times will pass, flowing into the more active phases. All is well.
As promised, here’s the link to my recent guest blog for Kind Over Matter: Loss, Love, and Music. Please feel free to share it if you’re so inspired. This week I’ve been in touch with the creator of Bliss Habits about doing a guest post for her website, as well as participating in a Facebook group of inspirational websites that share quotes and pictures with one another’s pages. I love networking!
I finished reading GoodReads for Authors by Michelle Campbell-Scott, and found some useful tips to implement. I need to choose my next book on marketing – I have several of them in my Kindle, patiently waiting for me to decide. I also have some books to review lined up. I love it when reading is on my to-do list, since it’s something I always do anyway.
Not much progress has been made recently on editing our novel. It’s on my radar, though. And I’ve been percolating ideas for another novel, as well. My creative flow is still there, underneath the ice, patiently awaiting the spring thaw.
