However you choose to celebrate I hope you all enjoyed some extra time off work (or the extra penalty rates).
I took advantage of the public holiday to catch up and play board games with some friends and though I did not eat even one chocolate egg there was a lot of pizza.
As for my writing I am still caught up in my studies but the end is near in sight and I’m starting the feel that familiar itch in my brain. Hopefully before too long I will be able to sit and do some editing for the House of Broken.
Why does this always happen to me? I will be trying to write all day, managing to pen only bits and pieces. But now that it is late at night and I want to go to sleep the words keep coming. I would just give up and go to bed anyway but I would only lie awake thinking of what to write.
My only hope is that my body will let me sleep in tomorrow, but I doubt it.
Yesterday was my birthday and I have turned the dreaded 30. Most people I talk to lament these kinds of milestones I don’t feel fazed by this.
It helps that people have told me I don’t look 30, but it is also because I don’t feel any different from when I was 29, or 28. The main thing that has changed is my range of experiences and they just give me more to write about.
I wonder if I will still feel the same when I turn 40.
I can’t stand to write in silence. Peace and quiet are really not conducive to my creative process. Even when I was at University I could not study in silence and so I have to create noise. Sometimes I will put on a TV series that I have seen many times before, but I can end up getting distracted by that too.
So my favourite thing is to play music and my favourite person to queue up is Lindsey Stirling. I find her music very uplifting and the lack of lyrics means I don’t have other words playing in head while I try to write my own.
Though my rhythm gets a bit messed up by those awful YouTube ads.
