Something keeping you from putting your hands on the keyboard?
After a month away from home, my computer and my job, it’s time to get back into the groove of things.
Before summer, I used mornings to work on my WIPs or editing or what-nots (all those what-nots involve writing in some manner). Now, those same hours are filled with a job – I’m on my fourth week and I quite enjoy it – especially the adult interaction. After being home with kids as my sounding board, that took some getting used to. Baby talk and time-outs are a no-go in an office full of women (and one man who happens to be family).
The kids, who were away for part of the summer, are back and I can’t seem to grasp the whole working-mom thing. Trial and error. With camp some days, dad’s ever changing schedule to work around – mind you, at the last minute – I’ve become an almost-expert juggler. Maybe I should add that to my bio!
I'm only beginning to get my life back in working order as my writing logins and passwords were buried under mountains of furniture we’d moved into one room so we could refinish floors before the kids returned. Needless to say, I found them, but my house is still in disarray.
So, getting in the groove: I’d forego all the previous mentioned things just to carve out time to write, write, write. That is the groove I most can’t wait to get back into. My fingers are tapping in anticipation, my brain won’t shut off all the new ideas I can’t wait to begin.
So here’s to the tail-end of summer and getting all my ducks in a row (or geese, we have tons of geese) and getting my write back on!
How do you get back into the groove?
