Although summer isn’t officially here yet, it feels like it has arrived. The humidity where we live in Maine has hit around 80% and I’m just about dying. If it weren’t for the beauty of the untouched trees here I would find some excuse to find some place else to live. Seriously.
Just a long annoying day and I still need to get my writing in.
I know it’s a simple and minor thing, but it feels like a big step for me. It’s a deeper commitment to blogging as a job. I’ve settled on https://artofchaos.blog/ using the new domain category that WordPress has available now. It seems to be more appropriate than using .com for the blog. It feels really good to have this sense of being official rather than being just a hobby.
Thank you, Leslie, for suggesting that I drop the “What I Would Have Done Differently” portion of this format. I completely agree that I shouldn’t be feeding into any maladaptive perfectionism that will only bring me down at the end of the day. Instead, I’ll try to focus on the things I’m grateful for. A boost in positivity can’t be a bad thing.
I’m already wondering whether or not I like this format. It feels clinical – like my mood trackers. I acknowledge that I should be assessing my day every day, but I wish it had a more organic feel to it. Maybe I just feel that way tonight because I didn’t really do anything all day so ordinarily I wouldn’t be posting at all, so there is that advantage to this format.
Thought it would be a good idea to set up a structured template for myself to use to go over and assess my day with. First half of the day was quiet with way too much puttering about, rest of the day was lots of running around and herding children. I think it’s easier to herd cats with a spray bottle.
Well, it’s only 6:30pm and I’ve finished Chapter 9 and written all of Chapter 10 – bringing me to Chapter 11. So in terms of my plan of 1 Prompt = 1 Chapter I’m still behind and I’m feeling the stress of that despite my word count being above par as of today.
