Nothing to do with Writing

I am exhausted. You know that bone weary exhaustion that clings to you like a second skin, suffocating every movement you make? That’s me. And it suffocates your brain as well. I am plodding along. I guess it is a combination of things…I’ve lodged the book, I’ve been busy helping out with school and as a family we are waiting to hear on a decision that could really help us out…or not.

It leaves a girl feeling very unsettled. Combined with fatigue, it is lethal combination.

On the upside the challenge weekend was fabulous and the kids had a ball and learned heaps.
It’s over but now we have to organise citizenship placements and the trivia night/silent auction preparations are booting up with the big night on May 27th.

Treading the fine line of volunteering is always tricky….the feel good of contributing versus the feeling of being overwhelmed by the amount of work on top of the paid job.

I’ve had three good nights sleep….I think I need another three 🙂

  1. Hi Fiona!
    I empathise with you BIG time on the fatigue; and I too have recently taken on some voluntary work – I know what you mean about being overwhelmed by the amount of work involved!! 🙂

  2. Thanks!
    I tried to think about another book but by the end of tuesday I just said ‘STOP’. So I have tried to stop…made about 12 phone calls but have sorted out the citizenship thing. YAY. Now to write the workshop. THEN the next book. Feeling very unimaginative right now.
