Transition to the real world

Well its back to the day job tomorrow after what my friend David refers to as "that bowl of cherries called paid liesure time," i.e. a week off work. I have to be honest and say that right at this moment the prospect is not filling me with glee but then I remind myself that there are millions of people out there who would like to be in my shoes so I've told myself to "shut up whinging and get on with it."
I will also take up the pink pen again tomorrow. I have had a week of rest from that too and if I'm still on that honesty thing, I haven't missed that too much either. I have just reeeaallly enjoyed a week off.
Tomorrow though, it will be back to the real world with a vengeance.
The day job will take care of itself and will depend a lot on what has happenend during the last week when I haven't been there. The transition back will be good or bad depending on what I find in the morning and as I won't know that 'til then there's not a lot of point worrying about it. As for writing, I will take a new look through rested eyes at my Nice project with the intention of developing some of the characters and ironing out some creases. At some point today I also want to come up with a list of SMART abjectives for my writing so there will/may be more on that later.
In the meantime there are 30 pages of "Jane Ryre" left to read.

Hi Colette

Just catching up as not been around for ages.

Boo hoo, for you having to go back to work. Hope it goes well.

And look forward to seeing your list of smart objectives - I need some of them!

Are we allowed to know what the day job is?

Jarmara Falconer said...

Good Luck on all levels, Colette.

Debbie said...

I'm also back to work, but starting on Tuesday. Back to normality, eh?

Enjoy your writing and reading. I'll be reading Jane Eyre at some point for A Classic Challenge. Can't wait to read this one again.

The 'real world' at times causes me to shudder BUT it also can be inspiring. Lets hope it is that way for you. x
