Friday Fess-Up: March 23rd

Welcome, folks, to the penultimate Friday Fess-Up post for March. One more of these and we’ll be in “April Showers” territory. Now I can’t say I’m a big fan of the mud that’s coming, but it’ll be a bit of a relief to get the heck off the freeze-thaw cycle we’re on, and will continue to be on for a while.

What is there to Fess Up to this week?

Not much as it turns out.

I got some good stuff down this week. Well, time and a re-read or two will tell whether “Good” is an appropriate descriptor, here, but I got some stuff down that I’m currently happy with.

So the week started off strong. One day I had fallen into “The Zone” so completely that I was nearly late for work. Let me tell you, it was rough to drag myself away, but you do what you gotta do.

In relation to that, this week was the second stretch of consecutive late days at the day-job. Two consecutive 12-14 hour days.

Like everywhere else, sleep continues to be the priority. Everything else on those days gets compressed, and I confess to getting overly down on myself about it. Going into this stretch of long days, I got depressed knowing that I was going to lose writing days.

One of the things I am learning–well, relearning, actually–is that I need to figure out how to put that behind me and make do the best I can with what I’ve got.

I also need to be aware of (and accept) is that the amount of what I can do with what I have won’t always be the same from day to day.

The important thing is the progress and the discipline to make progress regularly. Myself, I’m up five days a week (usually). I realize that may or may not work for you, but if you’re out there making progress–and making progress regularly, you’ll get there.
