Today was pretty quiet.
I spent the day at home, working on school work and other writing related activities, including an webinar put on by the Writers Guild of Alberta talking “breaking into traditional. publishing.”
They presenter of the webinar was Albertan author P,J. Vernon. I have not read any od his work, but he gave a very solid presentation on the challenges that new authors face. The entire presentation was 90 minutes, and very worthwhile.
The biggest takeaway from the session was be persistent, and that rejections are a right of passage. It was actually very inspiring.
Other than that, I did some studying, and caught up on a few chores, so not much really exciting.
I am happy about myself with one thing though. I got myself back into my home-gym and got a half an hour workout in on the treadmill. I’m happy that I’m working out again. I’m less happy that my endurance and conditioning have dropped to the point they have, but there’s not much I can do about it, except keep plugging away.
As I’m easing back into my routine, a realization has hit me though. I miss doing my 75+ minute workouts that I was doing at this time last year. I miss how good I felt. I miss how light I felt. I know jumping back into them head first is a sure way to burn out, but my goal is to get back to them. Unfortunately, with the wounded wing that could take awhile. Still, the treadmill and stretching is a good start.
I’ve got to look for the positives where I can find them. I’ll keep everyone posted.
