|Because nothing say's "summer" like a hot, topless man. :)|
Is everyone excited for summer? Together now ::HAPPY SIGH::: There's barbecues, swimming, fishing, barbecues and other fun in the sun. Summer has always been my favorite time of year. There is nothing more blissful than sipping hard cider under a balmy, star studded sky and conversing with long lost friends who've been hidden away all winter.
But...this year I almost dread it.
"WHAT?" you say?
That's right. Last summer was a train wreck of anxiety. Due to the kids being on break and constantly underfoot, and the frequent influx of unexpected company and what seemed like nightly barbecues, it was a struggle to get anything done, whether it be a blog post or a new chapter in the WIP.
I'm not liking this new hostility for what I consider the best three months of the year. So from now on, I'm going to make "resolutions" for this and every summer to come.
1.) I will try to get blog posts finished in advance.
2.) I will not dive too deep in a new project. Instead, I'll put primary focus on polishing existing ones.
3.) This summer will be mostly dedicated to reading: research, beta reading and reading for pleasure.
4.) I will take at least one day off each week to "be a normal human," abandon my laptop, and enjoy the season.
5.) When I can't write, edit, or research, I will not agonize. Instead I will continue to court my muse with daydreams.
Whew, that made me feel better already! How about you? What are your "summer resolutions?"
