Hi there, my lovelies.
I am sure you are as surprised to see an actual blog post from me, rather than my usual ARC reviews. I know, it’s been a while. I just needed some space and I am trying to figure out my footing in the meantime.
I have developed a new schedule! Finally! Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays! From which Thursday would be dedicated to my writing. It could be anything. A short story, poem, just talking about my writing process or even an opportunity to interact with the community. Tuesdays and Saturdays are completely dedicated to ARC reviews. I have got so many to read and share!! (I am so excited to share my Netgalley badges on the sidebar, don’t forget to check them out!! )
I have heard this quote so many times, and each time I resist the urge to roll my eyes. Do what scares me? Uh… I am a germaphobe and a control freak, numerous things terrify me!
But recently, I have had time to just sit and think. For almost a year and a half, we’ve all endured so much and now, our new normal MIGHT just shift to the old normal. (With the due course, of course.) That scares me. The thought of mingling with people again. I don’t think I can carry on a conversation in the “wild” now after just being comfortable with how drastic the change had been.
So… For now, I have been concentrating on my thought process.
So what did I do?
Let’s be real here. I am human not a fictional character from a book that suddenly decides on skydiving. I am going to start small. And I am going to do things that frighten me. Hence why the new schedule is born. I wish to do things that would push me out of my shell rather than make me miserable.
Maybe the fear is just in the mind and it should be. No one can see fear but we all experience it in various forms.
