Cleanliness to Help the Writing Process

Yesterday ended up being a highly productive day.  Once I finished this I went and cleaned up my office, cleaned out my library (this is actually a walk in closet that I have put bookshelves etc in), vacuumed the whole house, washed the kitchen floors and cleaned a bunch of the windows (I focused on the ones that had the most dog snot on them).  I’m not sure why I am continuing to write out here in the living room.  I do want to write in my office.  It feels “right” again.  I supposed the simple answers are the AC is out here and the kids are too.  But the kids would come in my room if I went in there.  Sooooo…. Habit then.

Since I have done a lot around the house I guess I can focus on writing today.  And since I am feeling  little better some yoga.  I pulled out my yoga mat and block from my office when I cleaned yesterday.  Chris was shocked when he came in my office and saw everything I got done before he got up.  When I finished vacuuming he was nice enough to blow out the various filters from the vacuum for me.  He got a crash course on how to take it apart and put it back together.  The house does feel better.  I am trying not to look around and see other things that need to be done.  I try to clean every day but when the bug bites I try to go with it and that’s when I tackle the bigger projects.  That being said I also need to make sure that I don’t lose myself in that and not write.

I found that I don’t write in the current journal as much.  Part of it is because I am getting to the end and I am anxious to start using a new journal.  The other part just dawned on me the other day.  It’s too small.  The pages are too narrow and my writing feels confined.  Writing a page at night in a spiral notebook or something of that size I feel I can get it all said.  Even if I go on for a few pages in this journal I feel confined.  I got it because it was smaller and easier to cart around.  I guess that I need to pay attention from now on.

I think I will wrap this up and see what kind of trouble I can get into on paper.  Thanks for reading!  Stay safe and have a great day!
