Back in the Swing of Things

Dancers getting their swing on.
 I'm still on a high from the Giant's win last night. What a game! Go GIANTS!! I feel like January has come and quickly, but maybe it's just me. I've gotten back into the swing of things regarding school. My first course this semester focuses on organizational communication. I find the class very relevant to my work which is a nice bonus, but despite that fact I still felt overwhelmed when the course began. I find that is a pattern I go through. School equals stress for me and I have come to adjust to that fact.

And although I was back into the swing of things on the school front, I wasn't back on all fronts. A little over a month ago I declared that I would be writing a page a day. I must come clean and admit I didn't. My SMART start was delayed. Two nights ago that changed thanks to the hubby. He asked me how I was doing on my screenwriting goals and if I've been writing my page a day? I told him, "No." and his response was "To write my first page that day." It took me about 45 minutes to write the page, but I did it and I'm so glad I did it. I wrote a page last night and I will continue to write a page a night until the story is done. I basically can't go to bed until I finish one page. The pressure is on, but I know that is what I need.

Now that I'm back to writing, I truly feel like I'm back in the swing of things. Do I still feel slightly overwhelmed? Yes, but at least I have a routine and my goal for this week is to stick with what I've started.
