Moving Into a Long Weekend

Earlier this week I was going a bit crazy - I was more or less caught up on those things that I wanted to write and had no pending prompts or challenges ahead of me. I had a drabble to play with, which I forced myself to at least formulate and which may, at some time, see the light of day, but all of my larger challenges were complete. Revision of older stories and research for NaNoWriMo were all that lay ahead of me. But thank goodness things have changed. I now have my assignments for both the June LOTR Community Challenge and the Ardor in August challenge, and I love both of them, so I'm back in the saddle again, reviewing possible plots and time lines and running possibilities through my head. As Yoda would say, "Very happy, I am, with the assignments."

I have been taking a Continuing Education course in Creative Writing that is also taking up time for me, but it's been glorious and I'm really enjoying it. In fact, I have another lesson to download today, so I'll have lots of work ahead of me for the next few days. Happy again.

I know that some of my friends, both on-line and in real life, wonder why I keep myself so busy. I fully admit that I wake before the crack of dawn, work long hours at my shop, and pack my off-time with tasks such as writing while still trying to include my DH and his requests in my life. I do it because staying busy is a defense for me in many ways. If I'm busy I can't allow my thoughts to drag me down. Instead, I fill my life with possibilities, art, beautiful pictures, plots, characters that I love, and friends - both on-line and in real life. Why would I want anything else? Happy Friday!
