Weaknesses of the situation are that I can’t consider drinking or eating anything right now, however, this is really an.........
Opportunity because a) I might lose weight and b) said germs will obviously prevent me from shopping and cooking today. (Only applies when offspring are able to drive, cook or otherwise fend for themselves for a day). It’s quite convenient really as it means that Dinky Laptop and I have time to laze in bed breaking all the rules that I set previously about not allowing pets to sleep on the bed. The animals don’t seem to mind and it’s quite nice actually. And they have promised to respond to ‘Get down’ issued in a stern voice if anyone comes in. Situation covered.
By now you may suspect that I have lost the plot in my meanderings but actually something very pertinent is going on. In both instances I have changed something that appeared to be an obstacle to something that would actually enable me to write.
So, allow yourself to be flexible in your approach to your writing routine, what you write about or where you do it. You may find that it changes the way in which you write or your choice of narrator or even genre. You may just surprise yourself. And you may also discover yourself having fun in the process. Like I did today. I normally like to express my dark side in writing. But not today.
