Ok, back to the grindstone

. Remember when I said I was going to take a break from new writing to concentrate on tidying up old stories, researching groundwork for future stories and trying to sell my work?

Yeah….that didn’t really work.

I had a good try. But the momentum just slipped away. I couldn’t get myself going. (The constant cold damp weather and catching cold after cold didn’t help either).

And then I started to get restless, and irritable. All the time. Temper rose, and motivation dropped. I was tired all the time. And always so bored – but didn’t have the energy to do anything.

And today, as I was browsing in a shop, I found a shelf full of notepads. I told myself not to look, I didn’t need new paper, I wasn’t currently writing. But there was one nicely-bound notebook which caught my eye. On the front of it was engraved the words:

‘If you wish to a writer, write!’

Right. Okay. Thank you, universe, I get the point. I need to get back to new writing. It gives me all the motivation I need, calms me down, makes me happy. And obviously the universe wants me to do it…

So I’m back to it. Settling down, new pad, new pen, new ideas.
