Late, late, late. I try to do these on Sunday, but I’ve been sick, so… well, there you go.
My meditation suffered last week. I was working flat out to get the first half of my book done before 2011 started, and that pretty much occupied my every waking thought. (Aren’t excuses grand?) It was pretty much impossible to set aside, even for meditation, which I know does me good. Even now it’s still effecting my meditation. I couldn’t sleep last night for obsessing about the book.
So, this week’s goal, in addition to continuing the daily meditation, is to learn to set aside writing thoughts while meditating. This will be very challenging, but if I try to live and breathe and think the book every minute, I’ll burn out. I need to learn to put it aside, to get some distance. This will help with my sanity and — on a practical level — with the editing process.
Now, back to work on the first scene of part two…
