I guess I better take up the GeneaBlogger's blogging Prompt called Wisdom Wednesdays, and see if I've learned anything at all lately, which I'm feeling like I have not. Actually to be precise, I have learned a whole lot of little things but I'm not feeling great about the general thrust of my learning because it's random and besides I feel crummy.
Now that the Family History Writing Challenge is over, I've dropped the ball and haven't written a thing. It's sad, because I'm this close to finishing up the chapter I set out to write. The Challenge was terrific and I'd do it again in a NY minute. But maybe the reality of continuing has set in with the realization that I was "in training" for the month of February but now it's back to the everyday. I need to figure out how to incorporated writing projects into my daily schedule or devote one day a week to writing. My dedication to the project hasn't wavered. The structure provided by the project has disappeared and wants replacing.
Blocks due to eye infection. I am the very last person to admit it when I get feeling under the weather. I foster a state of denial far too long and try to carry on when I should be attending to health. On a trip to Palm Springs last week, had an allergy flare-up and my eye tissue must have gotten mixed up with my nose tissue, and well, it wasn't good. (Too much information? Sorry.) By the time we got home Thursday afternoon I knew that the next trip was going to be to the eye doctor probably on Friday. I didn't feel like writing or researching or anything. So I pretty much didn't.
I have not jumped on the webinar bandwagon as I had planned for the month of March. Too bad for me. I had promised to get busy with new learning experiences and was going to try out a couple of webinars because they sound like fun. Maybe next week will be better.
I feel like I'm stumbling around and not making much progress. My goals remain strong and post note surround my desktop monitor, but the body is weak, I guess. Yeah, it happens. Bummer. Think I better take a nap. My eye hurts... boo-hoo for me. Whine. Isn't this pathetic?? I really ought to delete this post but I won't because if you're not feeling too chipper yourself, just know that we are souls-a-sufferin' together. Pass the tissues.
Late breaking news: Feeling better, so please ignore all of the above, except I do need to get back in writing mode and jump on those webinars! And have just found out from other bloggers in the know that Legacy Family Tree Webinars is offering a really good deal of $49 for a year long open access membership pass!
