I’ve Been A Bit Quiet.

I’ve been very quiet online for the past week and that’s because of the continuation of my massive life upheaval. As some of you know, three weeks ago I moved from my little town in the Highlands south to the big city. As of Monday, I also started my new job. As such I haven’t had much time for anything other than working, commuting and collapsing into an exhausted heap when getting home. New jobs are like that. Loads of information, meeting dozens of new people, new places and being so far out of a carefully crafted comfort zone. On the plus side, I’ve watched a lot of Voyager.

On the downside I’ve missed a whole week of writing from tiredness alone. Good job I used my time off well. Still, I have survived the first week which is usually the worst. I’m hoping that next week I’ll handle things better and be able to actually get some writing done.

It’s a bit of a downer having to neglect the thing that I love because of the day job but in the end it will be worth it. I’m already loving living here and the new experiences and people this opportunity is opening me up to will vastly increase the knowledge I can draw upon for writing with. People and experience are research tools that can’t really be replaced. Plus, I’ve already got a couple of boxes of tea sitting ready for cracking on next week.

Also, since this post is apparently more about my boring life than actual writing, I got a place in a Pokémon gym yesterday, so that was nice. I was knocked out again in the five minutes it took me to get home but I shall treasure that screenshot forever.

Are any other writers out there facing massive upheaval? How do you handle the changes and balance your writing?

  1. First weeks at new jobs are rarely fun. Together with the move and everything: Congrats on surviving! So proud of you. Those are big, brave changes.

    I’m anticipating a major change in my life. Within a few months I’ll be pulled from my nightshifts (again). Something that has been proven in the past, does not go well with either physical and mental health. Not looking forward to that. We’ll see how it goes down this time.

    • Things are looking up now finally! (as you can tell by me finally replying to comments my goodness I’m awful at this having a blog thing) I hope you get something worked out with your work as well! Awful when things suddenly get upheaved :<
