What’s my password?

19 May

Yes, I had that thought as I came to log on – it’s been a while. The end of the Faber group brought with it new jobs and a distinct taking the foot off the gas in all things literary. I’ve even been finding it difficult to read anything other than the newspaper. Each time I even think about picking up a book I wonder how improving it’s going to be to me, or more importantly, my writing.

Maybe I’m just tired, and my brain needs a bit of a rest. Since March I’ve been trained for 2 different jobs (although one was very temporary and is now done) and have finally started in my new part-time role (no big career, just making money). I think the result of all of this is that my brain is feeling a bit overloaded – none of it is particularly difficult to understand, but when you’ve been sitting on your own, and mainly living in your own head for a while, anyone talking to you needs concentration – never mind 8 hours of people talking to you.

Hopefully though things will calm down, and I can get back into my groove. I managed to make it along to the ex-Faber group (now that we have been cast adrift) and that has certainly reminded me what I’m meant to be working on. Because I’m always handing in things that I’ve written a few months ago, there is a bit of a disconnect with where I am now, and I always feel that the other writers’ stories are progressing faster than mine. Good to get the fingers moving again.

I make nice frocks and write average poetry. And there's a bit of embroidery and the occasional rant.
