Saturday – Sunday

I started so many of these in the last two months and failed to post them. In short, I’m burned out. All my creative juices are flowing towards edits, but my general mood is one of exhaustion, particularly at day job. I’m just managing to work on the stuff I need to check off, not much mental space left for distant goals.

I’m not sure how much longer this feeling will last. It started before the pandemic and has gotten worse since.

In an effort to take control of some aspect of my life, I started a No/Low Buy for 2022 and will be documenting it on my channel.

My 2022 Low/No Buy Rules and Goals
2022 Makeup Inventory

I am also finding new ways to engage in non-spending activities at home.

Looking back on the last ten years: moving forward, growing in my field, and considering non-traditional markers of success.

How do you measure success?

Take 5 minutes to write what you did in the last ten years, you’ll probably surprise yourself.

Where I’ve been, working on a new writing project, putting querying on hold to rewrite, my thoughts on book twitter and staying out of it, #projectpan love, future plans for this channel, and more as I try to catch up and re-invigorate.

What are you doing to seek happiness in 2020?

video: writing and living with chronic pain (a followup)

In which I sit down and blather on about trying to write with chronic pain, and how the heck you’re supposed to get on with work when you can barely think (?!).

Also, my sense of time is the WORST. In the video, I say I posted on this topic a year ago… friends, it was 2 months ago *facepalm*

MENTIONED

video: off the shelf – June reads

June was a weird month, book-wise. I had a hard time finding something to love until…
The hits, the misses, and the WHY?! *cough* 5 love languages *cough* that I read in June.
