But this year August has been… odd.
I’ve been buried in revisions that, aside from the very first one I tackled, try to suck the very life out of me. I go through page after page and end up with more red scribbled over the lines than the actual lines themselves. Blame it on the fact I’ve left them to sit for so long, blame it on the fact my brain has been searching for any opportunity to take a road trip (something we’ve inexplicably gone over a year without).
Evenings are usually when I have a chance to sit down and do the things I think of as Admin. These blog posts, website revisions & additions, actually getting things onto my social media. This month I’ve neglected them all. I get home from the day job and can barely be bothered to make dinner.
So As I work up my monthly tallies, I see the true extent of just how much I didn’t do. The last week had an odd writing push, I even found traction on a project on Friday that gave me the highest word count I’d had all month. I didn’t even get much reading done – Tragic.
So, my goal for September is just to unbury myself. To get things sorted out, organized and back into some semblance of “not a steaming pile.” And maybe get more accomplished than I did in August.
Did anyone else lose themselves in August?
