So today is my last day of vacation. I didn’t think I would ever say it, but its probably a good thing in some sense. I know, I know it sounds crazy, but hear me out.
Firstly, been consuming far too many good “bad” foods. Like cafe frappes, cake, chocolate, fried food, oily food, greasy meats and lots of bread. Did I mention I’m in Romania? Anyways, my digestive system will thank me for the non-mineral water and the more vegetables and fruits I plan to eat to make up for a two week hiatus.
Secondly, I was successful on at least two accounts to actually not know what day it was. I call it a success because you really know you are relaxed when you don’t know if its Tuesday or Wednesday or if its the 9 or 10 of August. Thus I have relaxed a lot and it might be ok to get my schedule back.
Third, I haven’t written at all on my work in progress. Yes, its shocking my word count is ZERO this week (weekly goal being 5, 000). Yeah, I didn’t even open my novel. I though I would feel guilty, neglectful or some other bad feeling. What I actually feel is lazy. I haven’t “worked” for over 8 eight days. I haven’t really blogged (which is writing too and requires some work), I haven’t been at my day job = no work and I haven’t even cooked or cleaned. Lazy, lazy, lazy.
So tomorrow my flight is too early in the morning (8am) thus requiring a 5:00am wake up. But that means I get home just after lunchtime and I will:
- Unpack my suitcases
- Wash laundry
- Clean the house a bit
- Go through zillions of photos taken on vacation (and probably plan blog posts while I do this)
- Try to write at least one scence for my work in progress (even though I know its a long one coming up)
In reality, I will probably unpack, start one load of laundry because I have to and then finish the evening off eating pizza at the restaurant down the street and drinking a glass of red wine. But I will get back into the groove. I will!
Is there anyone in the history of ROW80 ZERO words per week? Am I setting a very bad record? (I hope not).
