Author Journal 31st March – 6th April 2022

Like all good things, holidays must come to an end. On the one hand, I’m a bit bummed that I don’t get to have a long lie until 0530, but on the other, I’m really excited to get back to my work routine.

I mentioned in a post last week about the importance of taking time off that I had what I’m now calling a Chimp Day… Well, that one day turned into almost a week of downtime–the polar opposite of last time πŸŽ‰

I stayed offline, only briefly jumping on to ensure that my scheduled posts went out. But we chilled out for the rest of the time, went for a longish cycle that ended with a picnic, and caught a bit of sun.

Now that I’m all rested–though, I somehow feel even more exhausted than before I took a break πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ–it’s time to think about what my goals are for the new week.

This Week’s Goals

I’m not going to push myself too hard this week. I want to get a good win under my belt, and then I’ll ramp back up to where I was before my time off. So, here’s my goal:

See you all soon!

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by, and take care.

    1. You’re telling me! But, it was so much fun getting back to the writing today–an awkward morning after scene with a grumpy spy πŸ˜„
