Just Be

After a week of feeling totally burned out and not touching Magic Inc., I returned to it because I actually wanted to. Not because I made myself. I just let myself feel and be. And do "silly" things, like watching a bunch of old Backstreet Boys music videos, which is what inspired me to finish Chapter 25 today.

I have less than ten chapters left. I don't know how long they will take, partly because I'm also feeling pulled to return to Doubts for a while.

My goal for the last month of this decade is to just let things happen in their own time. No pushing. No forcing. Including, and especially, feelings. I need time to just reflect. To just be. If "work" gets done during this time, great. But it's going to be because I love it and I need it. Not because I have something to prove.

Happy Holidays.
