A day late with this (time got away from me this weekend), but here goes. The last two weeks, I've been: working | processing | finishing | going | sorting | waking | thinking | figuring | trying | reading
I'm honestly starting to freak myself out with this. Just a little.
I've managed to stay (mostly) on schedule for more than one week in a row!
It's been a stressful two weeks, but it hasn't been all bad. I've been: wondering | meeting| catching| loving | taking | thinking | resisting | overthinking | starting | reminding
I'm not a superstitious person.
At the same time, I'm really reluctant to talk about how well this project is going. I feel like if I do, if I talk about how I'm finding a rhythm, I'll jinx it.
But I'm not a superstitious person, and this project is starting to go really well. Not every single day, but on the days when it does go well, it's kind of amazing. I'm happy with this project specifically, and I'm thrilled with my photography in general lately.
Every month, I share the articles, videos, and sites that I found most interesting. Here's what caught my attention in May.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into May.
I finished April feeling good about how I was approaching my goals. I was feeling really good about the first draft of The Black Sun and my writing routine in general, but not so great about Violet Lane. And kind of awful about my photography. And I wasn’t exactly clear on my goals for May; I knew I wanted to keep moving forward, but beyond that…?
So I have no real metrics with which to judge May. Vague emotional impressions, it is!
I'm feeling kind of good about the last two weeks. I've been: working | processing | hemming | thinking | building | starting | getting | troubleshooting | considering | daydreaming
This is what happened: I thought I was done putting too much pressure on myself with this project. And then I missed a day (lack of inspiration, or motivation, or something else... I can't remember at this point), and then two days, and then I started feeling anxious about how the project had stalled....
The last two weeks have been so busy. In a good way. I've been: thinking | trying | making | wondering | struggling | putting | managing | spending | having | starting
