I put on my Eeyore nightgown last night, as the apartment had gotten a little chilly. This isn’t remarkable, except that I usual wear the least amount of clothing possible when I go to sleep. Anyway, I woke with that nightgown on, and I’m still wearing it. Actually quite freeing, in a weird way.
A caveat: I do not spend every day like this. Today was the exception, not the rule.
Wearing my PJs all day is a way of giving myself permission to stay in, regardless of what I need to work on. Usually, by midday, I am ready to shower and dress and face the world. I’ve become way too bored to hang around any more. Today was different. I wrote a post about not writing posts, and then watched an excellent movie on FLIXe, called Get Well Soon. I missed the first half-hour, so I can’t really give a review, except to say that it was terrifically done, a tragi-comedy, and well worth seeing.
After lunch, I thought of a challenge I did when I first started blogging — Choose A Word challenge, which I enjoyed very much. I grabbed a book, and closed my eyes and pointed. Physics. Okay. I have some history with Physics, so I started writing. But as I tried to find a website for a link, I forgot all about the post, and spent three hours looking at Intro to Quantum Physics sites. I didn’t finish that post before dinner, but I posted it, finally. And then I realized I had my writing back. Twice, I’ve written about not being able to write. I wrote a poem, on 6/15, called Uninspired. Today’s post is called Lethargy. This is my new strategy for fighting writer’s block. I am most grateful I found it.
