I have to fill you in on what I have been doing – Remodeling my bedroom and work space. Actually, Marty has been.
Writing was so unfocused that I thought, What are you doing? Why aren’t you writing? You are at the last full chapter of your book?” Then, it hit me. I HATE my space.
Visions of patching the plaster, getting rid of my awful closet, painting the walls are REAL color kept filling my head and nothing was filling my pages. So, I thought, okay honor this.
I have a lot of writing, video editing and presentation work to do this month. I need to feel that I am in my element and not in a before photo from the TV show, This Old House. Plus, a VERY good friend said, “LaDiva, you have been working almost daily on that book since November. Give your brain a break and allow your ideas to simmer for a couple of weeks. You are just writing to write and can’t see the project.” She is a very good friend to be able to call it as it is.
Marty came in with her FAV sledge hammer and started whacking away. Today is plaster and sewing the curtains for my new closet. Plastering takes a few days, for those of you uninitiated.
I have an end date to when I have to get back to the full grind, so I don’t go completely off the tracks. And even though the room is a bunch of plastic sheets and plaster dust, it feels better.
Can’t wait to show you the photos when we are done.
