Why, yes, Dumbledore. I know exactly what you mean when you say you occasionally benefit from emptying your brain of thoughts. I kind of wish I had a Pensieve sometimes.
Last week I did a brain dump. A big one.
I wrote down every single little thing I could think of that I wanted or needed to do. I had just passed March 1 (my deadline for Tell Its Story and 30 Days of Lists) and was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by everything I had been neglecting and putting off in order to have those 2 projects ready.
I realize now I forgot a big chunk.
Even so, this is 9 sheets of paper (1-side only) of TO-DOs to accomplish in the next weeks and months.
Clearly something needs to be done. Either I need to say NO more often, or I need to let go of some of the projects I’ve been wanting to accomplish …. or I need a clone.
