Last night was my usual martial arts training. I'm trying really hard to work on staying within striking zone and not always retreating. Essentially, I'm trying to be more aggressive. It's hard for me. As much fun as I have punching focus mitts and kicking shields as hard and as fast as I can, it's a different matter entirely when it comes to other people. I don't like bruising others... unless they deserve it. I assume. I've never really met anyone that deserved it (in the moment).
I didn't do too badly last night, and went to bed exhausted and happy. Mostly exhausted.
I also, just barely, made my writing quota yesterday (okay, by barely, I mean I shot past it by quite a bit, but it took me quite a long time to do it). It took a bit to scrape my head together enough to write, but I managed it. Honestly, the pressure of having to tick it off my formal to-do list in my butterfly effect journal is the only thing that got me writing yesterday. I'm quite glad for it, really.
This is week three... no, two... Hang on, let me check. Week two. Anyway, this is the second week of using the journal, and I'm kinda in love with it. The layout makes sense, and it actually quite effective in keeping me motivated, working and accountable. Unlike other planners I've used, it's quite dry, without any pictures or colours. Happily though, there is nothing stopping you from doodling, writing outside the lines and boxes and colouring-in over what ever space you like. I've coloured a few places in, and would probably have doodled all over the page if I ever had enough time to get bored. I'm too busy currently. Hopefully that will calm down.
AH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH! *wheeze*
Anyway, it's a great little journal, and I'm more impressed with this and how well it seems to work compared to all the other journals I've used to date. Speaking of, I need to fill it in before I get to work today. I am almost two-thirds of the was finished my manuscript. Knock on wood I continue apace.
Right, I have to go. Have a lovely day.
