Day 2 of full on speed packing.
The packing isn’t a problem, my concern over the deadline is.
I fear this more than a writing deadline.
I miss writing. Up until this last week I had spent 2013 writing everyday!
My house has got to take priority for a while, there are only so many hours in a day. And I really do have a lot to pack!
I have managed to read at least, I finished the novel I started in April! It was a long book and my second historical novel. I found it a challenge. Plus May was very busy with houses, work and managing lots of spinning plates with little time for reading.
I have also managed to catch up with articles about writing, as yesterday I packed the bookshelves into 12 boxes…
I am a bibliophile – I see that now. Last year I had a break through and learnt how to give books away without a broken heart. Now my rule is it has to fit on the bookshelf… 1 in 1 out… My mother’s system that she has relentlessly attempted to get me to follow over the past few years!
Off to spend the day packing boxes. Drudge!
Wish I was writing x
how quickly we learn our possessions have equal claim to ownership over us, as we t them.
Very thoughtful – I have had days when I wish I could free myself from it all. But even when on the de-clutter mission I cannot see how I can be without some of it. Maybe I will learn to let go of some of it.
I have not doubt that the move will provide fodder for some future musings!
I am certain that it will all work out in the end- I am very excited about it – just hope I’m ready in time. Looking forward to having a Summer House to write in!
