Set backs. Derailment. Changes in Plans. Everything happens for a reason? I honestly don't even know, but seriously? Yes. It's all happened, and more. I honestly don't even know which bits are and aren't important to the overall picture, but I'll try and piece it together. Fired. First one, and then another. The first was all that influenced me. Hours went funky again, waiting for another new hire. It was only a couple weeks, since I knew the guy. He's my buddy Frank. He didn't need training, but got it anyway. Then, it was my Birthday. My mom came down, so I had to spend a week cleaning my apartment which I keep way too messy to allow her to know, haha. While she was here, she gave me my gift: 3 years membership to 24 Hour Fitness and 14 personal training sessions. Hint hint, amiright? Haha, anyway, I knew it was something that would be good for me, and even though I hadn't planned for it... there it was.
Here it is. And so another month has passed without a single word written, much to my dismay, and that's when it happened. I realized... now isn't the time for this. I'm not in the right frame of mind. I'm no writer, I'm no author, and I just turned 29 years old and have very little to show for it. I've got things I need to prioritize in my life ahead of writing a book that may never see the light of day. Am I giving up? No. Next week, I may change my mind completely. For the next two months, though, I've got a trainer and a commitment to hit the gym 5 days a week. I'm going to be really sore, all the time, and when I'm sore I can't think. Not the sort of thinking necessary to create something as involved as a Novel. I'm hoping the soreness will start to subside, and I'll get used to this lifestyle, and like I said... who knows? For now, though, this is what it is.
But hey, I'll keep you updated. I'm not completely without my plans, either. Novels aren't the only way to have fun in life. Until next time...
