No - I'm not talking about exercising the creative muscle :) I'm talking about how I feel prior to doing either one! Before I start writing, I procrastinate, find a million other things to do, and generally drag my feet, putting if off as long as possible. That's the same with exercise, I'll think of a hundred reasons why I don't have time and/or energy and then I'll talk myself back into it a hundred times.
After I finally start each session - it's slow and I'm resistant and my mind is not on board with the whole endeavor. But once I warm up and get into it, everything goes smoother, and the next thing I know I'm done! I feel better have energy and am so glad I forced myself to start in the first place. And this is exactly how I feel for BOTH writing and exercise. I'm always happier when I'm done :)
Update on SCENT OF MAGIC - I'm heading into the final two chapters! Once I stop procrastinating, and when I finish cleaning the litter box, and........ I'll actually finish it ;>
Oh and yes, that's a picture of my cat Valek - a.k.a Kitty Kat, or the Bug Assassin, depending on his mood. I'm finding out that black cats are very hard to photograph and cats in general aren't good about posing - prima donnas! I added the photo because I think all blogs need pictures.
Here's one to celebrate Spring for my northern hemisphere readers! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
