I have no words and I must write

I'm really not in the mood to write today. I can't focus and I need to rest. Well, I meant to go back on a few things I've written anyway, so might as well get to that.

First off, it's not one day but two that I've missed. I didn't realize it until now. It's clear to me that I didn't pay attention to myself and what I need. It happened before and it's a bit concerning actually. It's a sign that I'm not taking care of myself; and if I'm not doing that, then I'm certainly not taking care of other people around me.

Fixing the writing streak is easy enough: just focus and get on with it, every day. Fixing my taking care of myself, that's going to be a little tricky. I'm going to use my writing to focus on the small good things that I do every day, until I get into the habit again. Maybe I'll use Sophie's model of checking off a list at the beginning of every post.

Right. Next topic, I haven't been keeping up with my book reviews. I think I've finished a few books but didn't finish the review. I'll get on with that in the next few days.

Speaking of reading, I didn't really spent enough time reading these past few weeks. I'm listening to American Gods, the 30th anniversary edition, recorded with a full cast from an expanded version of the original text, edited and rewritten by Gaiman himself. It's absolutely amazing, the winding story, the strong characters, the diverse voice acting. Its only flaw - if you can call it that - is that it's over 19 hours! Quite daunting.

I left some stories unfinished, and I don't like that. Even more, I have a lot of editing to do, and not enough time and energy to get to it.

And I've started to write new software. It's a new way to do CI/CD. I should do a post about it, I know there's a few of you tech-heads here who might find it interesting.

All in good time - now I'm going back to Peaky Blinders.
