Superwoman Falls from the Sky: IWSG
So, I realized the other day that recently I've tried squeezing into a superwoman suit. I'm into NaNoWriMo, NaNoRevMo for the last revision of Champion, blog fests, and all the other stuff I do in life.
I was flying pretty high, feeling good, keeping the invisible plane at a good height from the ground (you know, so no one actually could see me in that skimpy superwoman suit).
Then life interference flew into one of the engines, and it died.
I had to fight for control, cut the power to the remaining engine so I didn't spin, and take a long glide down, down, down to cold waters of Puget Sound.
My tiny little superwoman outfit isn't made for swimming in 50 degree waters.
Thankfully, I managed to check my radio before the plane became water-damaged.
That's the story of my writing week so far.
Thankfully, the awesome bloggers of blogland came by to cheer me up, wrap me in blankets of love, and warm me with cups of encouragement. (Thanks to the I'm So Thankful blog hop led by Tara and Viki - you both are wonderful superwomen!)
So, this superwoman (not) is climbing back in her invisible plane with some organized lists, a pocket timer with a really loud ding to keep me on track with my writing, and a full set of clothes.
I'm not sure what this says for IWSG except that I love the writing community here, and I hope I can encourage some of you the way that you've encouraged me. Also, I highly recommend having a writing timer, and making space for your writing, even if it means squeezing it in around other commitments.
And, because I don't think I said it enough times on Monday,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why? For being awesome, supportive, encouraging, and for sticking around and reading all my ups and downs.
