I can't sit for very long, so writer's block is not ideal at the moment. I don't think it's a block as much as a little bit of?apathy and a lot of exhaustion.??It's hard to believe how exhausting it is to stay positive and keep focused. It's also a little hectic having to fake so much of the attitude at the moment.
I'm bored out of my mind blogging about my progress and harping on about my back but the reality is that I am reminded of the situation I am in every moment of the day. If I am not in some sort of pain I am?marveling?at the fact that I have a few moments of total relief.
Today is no exception. I had a meeting and a coffee date with Surfer Boy to mentally prepare for. At least I'm over getting myself in a state before anything I did and now I just have to contend with not overdoing it and smiling through the process.
It was gorgeous ... I got to see Greggie's doggies and drink tea in his kitchen for the first time in at least 2 months. We had a brilliantly inspiring meeting with a colleague and future plans are on the roll. It was so great to be back in the swing of things. Obviously my best part was whipping up a bit of a meal while ?chatting business. It's the little things that are so exciting right now.
As for my speedy date with Surfer boy, it was just that. As he fetched me he announced that he had set aside 45 minutes. I'm not sure if that was his 'interview' tactic, but after a month of talking, I was a little surprised that the meeting was so plain. I don't quite know what other word to use to describe it. He did announce that he thinks reading is a waste of time, which kinda doesn't sit well with a writer.
Despite it all, there is a fabulous?consolation ... thanks to our special friend, Irvin, I will have woken up by the sea and spent the day basking in the sun this time next week. ?I don't quite know how to say thank you, but I do promise to have a chilled jug of Pimm's and soda laced with fresh fruit in the fridge at all times. The sea has a very special place in my heart and my novel is based on the healing journey of a woman's bond with both the sea and the moon. I intend to take my manuscript and read it as if it was never read before, but most of all, I plan to give my body the break it needs after a very long journey of healing.
Yay, sand between my toes and crashing waves before my eyes!
