#WeekendCoffeeShare Lazy Muse Edition

July 30, 2017 , , , ,

reflection in my pool

If we were having coffee this weekend I would invite you to sip a long glass of iced tea or coffee. The weather is muggy and the ground is muddy. My ambition is active in starts and fits.  Last weekend was extremely successful in the possession purge department.  I unloaded a big car, loads of fabric, twofold funky floor cleaning machines, and about 300 pounds of glassware.  We went to the used book store with our DVD’s, but only a small portion were accepted for trade.  The initial phase was exciting because as items left the house, more was revealed that needs to go.  I did uncover space in the garage and in some cabinets in the house, but I am not even 10% into the work that I need to do.  It is exhilarating to see the empty space appear.  It will be even more exciting to clear out the barn and sell the lot across the street.  The financial reward will be more than worth the effort. I will perceiver.

With all the extra emphasis on physical things, my muse decided to be lazy and fickle.  I wrote very little this week while I settle into my work and commute schedule.  I made some excuses about all the “work” I have to do. I admit that this is pure malarkey.  My commute is an easy 20 minute straight shot, and my work is fun.  Plenty of people go to school full-time and work full-time and get graduate degrees.  Surely I can work a tiny part-time job while purging my possessions and still find time to write.  I am putting this muse’s nose to the grindstone in the coming weeks. It is better to write something, even if it is not my best work, than to skip too many days.  How do you handle your productivity issues?  Does your muse just lounge around and refuse to work?  Today I am working a shift on Sunday so I can take a full day off for my facial tomorrow.  Ms Muse should realize she is living in a very privileged and pampered being, and be more grateful.  If I discipline her she just leaves.  I can usually squeeze a poem out of her as she exits, but there is no telling when she plans to return. She is a lot like me.

While I fill your iced tea glass, tell me how your life and writing are going.  I hope you are feeling more productive than I am now.  Are you looking forward to the next season (back to school for some) or treading water?  I love summer because I spend so much time in the pool.  I don’t really mind the heat because I have a pool at my condo village I can use 24 hours a day.  I am very fond of moonlight dips.  The water cools off in the middle of September, ending the nighttime enjoyment.  Until then I can be found in the deep end, thinking deep thoughts, teaching the muse to swim.

I barely enjoyed coffee yesterday because of physical fatigue that put much of my writing on hold. If my brain isn’t work, my muse can’t be bothered. Silliness. 🙂
Have a great week!

That photo is a reflection of the sky and other plants isn’t it? Cleaning out is so liberating. You find space and it’s hard to not keep going….. though there are cycles to this kind of clearing out.
