Summoning 2 – The Resistance #DoMagick

I am resisting myself. I did about 900 words yesterday and about 200 today. These are low numbers for me. I know the blog posts do suck up some of my writing time. I blame the allergy triggered migraine brought on by my nasal allergies. I was able to shake it, but the meds leave me feeling foggy and tired. I was not all that hungry today either. When I went to lunch with my sister I had some eggs and meat and brought the rest of it home. I had some fruit tonight. My ritual this morning was a bit rushed because I slept in and was nursing the headache, and I had to be ready to go by the time my sis got here. After that, I did my video, wrote a few hundred words, pulled some weeds in the yard. I think rushing the ritual didn’t help me. I do need to sit down and schedule some things and maybe brainstorm a little.

One of the things I need to eliminate is just how connected I am to my social media, I think. Right now I’m connected at least 16 hours a day, which is pretty ridiculous. I need to get back on schedule and post everything through Hootsuite again. Remove all social media from my phone, and unless I have something going on, just checking the social media once a day, and during busy weeks, once a week. I think that would significantly get me back on track. I also need to get back to email answering hours. Sundays only. It will suck up my entire Sundays along with readings and classes/meetings, but if it’s the only day I get to people, so be it. This may mean that I won’t be able to answer personal questions. I need to basically step back and not be so accessible to my readers right now. As much as I love them, they really do demand a great deal of time and attention – and that 5-6 hours a week I spend answering questions about Daemonolatry could be time I spend writing. I can have Frank start getting back to them.  The sheer number of PMs I get is ridiculous so I may have to start instituting my “bot” answering service directing people to my email if they have questions.

I did not pull any cards today.  I want to try to get some more writing in before bed. Tomorrow is an office day and next week is payroll.  This weekend is booked solid with chores, errands, to-dos, meetings, readings, etc… That vacation is sounding pretty awesome right now. Tomorrow I will attempt to not rush my summoning of the muse, though I may not get much writing done because the exceptional spouse wants to spend time together tomorrow night and I promised I would, which means either I’ll use my lunch break tomorrow to post tomorrow’s blog, or it will be posted Saturday.  At some point, I need to make it to the grocery store to get coffee and veggies.  Change is coming!
