If you are searching for my broom, PLEASE, keep an eye out for my witchy Daily Thirteen Routine, too. I haven’t seen my workout list in forever. And I think Serenity bugged my house. I haven’t exercised one bit in the last two weeks, and it feels like she knows. I seriously need to get closed and physical with her New Year’s Fitness Challenge.
Actually, the bit about not doing anything is a lie. I’ve been working really hard, organizing my writing studio—a writing home away from home—where I can treat myself to the wonders of writing seclusion. Yes, I said writing 3 times… 4 times, in the same paragraph. And that is a magnificent thing, for writing fiction is what I should be doing. Um… make that 5 times.
The place I share with my Piano Man and the Little Princess is ginormous in New York City standards. However, it is a bit tight when it comes to my witchery and the process of writing. If you work from home, and you don’t have much space, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Sometimes, it is very difficult to create worlds while the outside world turns right on the other room or next to me.
You see, my Wicked Darlings, I’m one of those writers who CANNOT write in cafés or with opened windows. The sun and the moon are my playful mates, and if they are watching me I can’t resist looking back… and playing. This means that I write with the blinds closed, with no music or anything else that might get me out of my world. I can edit with distractions, but that’s my limit.
I’m a solitary writer. I thank the Universe, every day, for I’ve been blessed with a man who understands my needs. Now, Universe, won’t you be a darling and find me some writing space that is a bit closer to the rest of my home? Like, um, in the same house?
Oh, and while I’m on the subject of asking for stuff, can you make the days a bit longer, too? I want time to love, write, exercise, study, read, blog, do silly things… and I need to find my broom. *looks down* Hot damn! my broom has been right under me all this time. I hadn’t noticed it because I’ve been sitting on my butt.
What have you been up to, my Wicked Darlings? Any juicy changes you wish to share with your Wicked Witch and Darlings?
