It’s almost the middle of September, and for a lot of us that doesn’t mean very much. The weather is cooling off, there are a ton of holidays coming up, football is back, and for the most part our jobs and lives go on as usual. Soon the leaves will change colors, and halfway home from work you’ll look out the window and imagine yourself sitting in the backyard on a cool afternoon, writing and sipping warm coffee. The world is a riot of color and you’re inspired. Unfortunately, many of us are often tired, or burned out from a week of work, and writing amidst the tumbling leaves will turn into watching Netflix amidst the tumbling couch pillows (which sounds amazing, doesn’t it?).
But today is Sunday, and for those of us having trouble writing, or telling ourselves that we’re really busy right now and will have more free time in the future, today can and should be a day to get a lot done. Even if you’re already in a good routine, Sunday is a great day to write. Writing makes a lot of us feel good, and going into the week after having a productive day makes a huge difference. I hope everyone gets a lot done today. I know I will.
I wanted to take a few lines to check in with everyone. Many of you have been here for a long time and I could not appreciate that more. It means a lot to me, and not just in the casual overused-phrase way. Having everyone on this blog makes me really happy, which translates directly into more motivation and better writing. So thank you.
How is everyone’s September going? Do you like Fall? Any big plans over the next couple of months? How are you doing with your writing? What projects are you working on and how are they going?
