I don’t know why, I only know that it is. I woke up and once I looked outside, I didn’t even mind that it was sunny because it was a cold sunny. An Autumn sunny. From the view off our back deck you can see the trees on the hills beginning to change green dresses for orange, red, and yellow. The air is crisp and clear and there’s just enough breeze to give you that feeling of simultaneous wanderlust and perfect contentment.
God is in His heaven and our hearts and all is well with my world. I have no idea how long this feeling will last – perfect moments can only last so long, and I haven’t the Ba’ku talent for prolonging them.
I hit writer’s block with Monster for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I think I’ve finally overcome it. I think the idea of having to write a trial in the near future threw a wall of fear and doubt and “I have no idea what I’m doing” into my head and my inner editor scoffed so much I listened to her and didn’t touch the novel too much for fear of the up-and-coming hardship. (There are people who think writing is easy. To them I say ‘ni.’) I think I whacked her over the head though – I prayed a lot, gathered inspiration, ran across a .gif that snapped my heart into two pieces because it made me think of Monster…I am ready to conquer! I am going to finish it by October if I have to write through the night!
(Nobody look at me and say ‘You said that about September’ because I know I did. Sigh).
And now I have the excitement of NaNoWriMo looming in the very-near-future, as well as a trip to South Carolina, a trip to Florida, and a good friend coming to visit. Once Upon a Time is coming back, Dr. Who is back, I’m back in chocolate milk (almond milk, but nevertheless delicious) and I’ve suddenly been inspired to read all my John Howe art books again.
I’ve also been asked to write a quirky, spiritual look on Dr. Who + a review of Once Upon a Time for iBegat.com; I’m looking forward to it. Plus I have several more art commissions piled up, my school year to finish (forevaaaaahhh! Of course I’ve been sick and haven’t been doing much school, so I’m going to have to cram. And probably do some during NaNoWriMo. Aigoo.)
I have a pile of good books from the library to read, a pile of projects to write and things to draw, plenty of music to listen to, and life is good. Just right now, for today, I don’t have anything to be upset about, worry about, or be angry over.
Just…one of those days. 😉
