Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
|I am going to need a schedule for March or at least a daily To Do List. I realized today that if I don't have one of the two then I'm going to be in the same fix as today when March 31 arrives. I appear to be having difficulties when it comes to downsizing, I have to sort stuff and then decide if I want to keep something and either give it away or throw it away. The problem isn't the stuff I need to throw away, the problem is the stuff I have to give away. I seem to want to hold onto it; maybe I'm just a hoarder at heart.
I also have to write and review in March. In March I am participating in the following writing groups on writing.com: (1) "30-Day Blogging Challenge" , (2) "Blogging Circle of Friends Prompt Forum" , (3) "Project Write World" , (4) "Invalid Item" , and (5) "I Write Romantic in Winter" . On the reviewing side of the issue, I want to participate in (1) "The Kiwi Review Challenge! - closed" , and (2) "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group" . Other writing related projects for March are (1) the fantasy newsletter and (2) my off site blogs, but the off site blogs I plan to post to every other day.
Now that I written those down, it seems like a lot to do, which is why I need a schedule. Fortunately, I have food in the house, so I don't have to spend very much time in the grocery store. I do need to purchase dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, a filter for my water pitcher, and a prescription for eye drops (I think about March 17). I also have to make an appoint for an ultrasound of my veins. Then there is the Feast of ‘Alá’, on the evening of Friday, March 1, the Naw-Ruz celebration, the Feast of Bahá, and the memorial service at the Baha'i Center for my mother.
Between writing and downsizing, March is going to be a busy month. The only other thing coming up in March is my premium membership, it is due on March 31. At least with all I have to do, I won't have time to worry; of course, I won't have time to sleep either. One of my brothers once said that sleep was overrated perhaps I will have to take that as my motto in March. I don't sleep well anyway. I can't sleep on any mattress in the house because of the pain, I sleep on a couch or a love seat because it is less painful. I don't go to sleep right away when I lay down either. Perhaps I'm better of working until I get sleepy then laying on the couch staring at the ceiling.
