I felt like I had brain overload yesterday. I wonder if other writer's get to the point where they don't feel like they can think any more. I finished my first 15 minute play with the slight problem it's a bit short on time. I am sure taking into account movement and pauses it will be a bit longer than I timed it but to be sure I wanted to add a bit more dialogue. I found it really hard to try and do this straight away though. It may have been the fact my thoughts were distracted by the stray (or rather cruelly neglected) cat that has been in my garden for the past week and got picked up by the RSCPA yesterday. So instead I started working on my piece for the Arthritis Care competition. By the end of the day I felt like my head was going to explode and was frustrated by the fact I hadn't actually finished anything completely. Fortunately my husband took us out for dinner before we visited relatives.
So after a day like that I decided tidying the desk area upstairs was my better option today. Harder work with the heat of the day but I have made good progress. I sorted through lots of paperwork from my previous job in physiotherapy and it was quite surreal considering how much my life has changed. I still have one box to sort through but after a siesta on the sofa my energy levels have not resumed sufficiently for me to want to continue today. I can at least get up there to work now but think I will wait until I have done it all to take my after shot.
With any luck I will be able to finish clearing up tomorrow and I would be very happy if I manage to complete at least one writing project before the weekend is out.
