Getting Past the Gloomy
Frankly, it hasn't been very easy. I miss the camaraderie of Facebook, and I can't help wondering if anyone at all is missing me being there. Not that it matters. I'm gone for 40 days. So what am I learning from this hiatus? First of all, that I am much more attached to social media than I ever thought I was. It's making me gloomy not to be on it and not much fun to be around. But I am determined to do this, so I figure the gloomy will get better 𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅗𝅥𝅘𝅥𝅯 as time goes by 𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅯𝅘𝅥𝅘𝅥𝅯.
I'm also discovering that I spent a lot more time on FB and Twitter than I would've guessed before last week because suddenly, I have all kinds of time. So, I've been reading more, I'm binge-watching The West Wing again in preparation for Lani Diane Rich's new podcast JED BARTLET IS MY PRESIDENT. The first episode of the Chipperish podcast drops tomorrow--don't miss it! She does a great job breaking down the story. I'm also getting my news from NPR, PBS, CNN, and The New York Times websites instead of following links from Facebook, which is probably giving me a truer picture of national and world events.
I''m editing, I'm writing, I'm critiquing, I'm thinking a lot about the next book, and where I want to go with the current story . . . kinda stuck right now, so I've got to figure that out. Husband and I have been taking walks and I hit the pool with much greater regularity.
So that's the update, kids. Please stop by and visit me here and at my own blog at www.nanreinhardt.com. I miss you guys! I need news!! Tell me everything I've missed for the last week!
