I need a retreat

I am tired, and I’m cranky, and I am discombobulated.

I need some sort of retreat, but I don’t actually want to go anywhere.

So that leaves me trying to figure out how to have a retreat like experience without actually going away.

And I guess that looks like having a focussed time to work on some specific aspects that are difficult to schedule time for in my normal life.

I want to spend some time doing some planning, doing some more focused, creative work, and figuring out where I want to go with my writing right now.

I think the solution is in scaling down from my idea of having to spend a whole day on these things, but choosing to spend a chunk of time , a smaller chunk of time, maybe only an hour and answering one question at a time for myself related to that list above.

I actually have some time tomorrow to dedicate to one or two of these things, and I’m gonna give it a whirl.

I’ll report back.
