Transition Girl

Why transition girl?... Best answered by a quote from the Iliad....."The soul was not made to dwell in a thing; and when forced to it, there is no part of that soul but suffers violence."

marking a moment

My work is done. Not really. If I could switch off my imagination, my work would be done. I embrace instead the tangents of thoughts that take me to many a magical place and accept that writing is and will always be my favourite form of release. Truthfully, the idea of life without such spark is no life at all.

Today, I am marking a moment. All three of the written parts of the Panopticon series are now available in paperback and ebook format so I pause just long enough to appreciate the end-products of years of writing.

It feels weird.

I have such a strong drive to finish things - an aching need to achieve that last end stop - so much so that I now take a regular last Friday of the month day off to find a moment of Zen. Relax. Learning how to pace myself. Striving for a different perspective. Only I would reach for pause making raspberry trifle. A futile attempt to clear away the mind clutter.

It is great to finish but whenever I do, all I then want is to start afresh. I feel out of sorts when I am not writing. Creating short stories at the moment to keep me going until I'm ready to dive back into the deep end and develop the storyboard for the next novel.
