A few days ago, I craved solitude. It would fade a little as I spent time in front of the computer, but it would come back with a vengeance until I decided yesterday to just stay offline for a day. I did nothing except knitting and watching T.V. in complete solitude. Did that help?
Well, yes, because it didn’t make the craving go away. It made me realize that solitude wasn’t what I’m craving. What I was craving, was change.
As much as I enjoy revisions and singing and drama, if that (and work) is all I ever do, I’ll go stir crazy. Well… more so than usual.
Once I realized that this was where my mind was at (my mind has a way of hiding these things), I started wondering what I could do to change this situation. Because heaven knows, it’s stopping me from getting anything else done.
As it happens, I’m not the only one feeling this way – my friend Theresa felt the same. We chatted about it and I mentioned that I would love to start a Fashion Label.
The moment it did, the name for said label sparked in my head.
So now I know why my mind wouldn’t even look at my WiP.
But yeah… starting a label will take some serious ass time. More than I even want to go into it in this post. And if I’m going to make the commitment to this, I’m going to have to cut back on my revisions.
Which means that my 31 July goal is impossible. So rather than run around like a headless chicken, getting nothing done, I’m just going to extend the goal in such a way that neither my revisions nor my Label will get in the way of my degree…
Here’s to my new venture. May it be a smashing success.
Anyone else starting something new?
