A New Space

I am a creature of habit.  I like it when things go exactly like they are supposed to, and, if I’m honest, having a routine helps me function a bit.  When things change (especially unexpectedly) it can send me into a bit of a tailspin.  It’s usually different if I’m the one instigating the change, but not always.

This past weekend, however, I was the one that changed things up.

Pretty much since I moved into this space, I’ve had my computer set up in the same spot.  It was a comfort to me, I think, to sit down and see the same exact things every time.  And I’ve done a lot of writing with the computer facing that way and it has been good.

But because of a big change in my life, I needed to move things around.  I needed a new space to write.  It took a great deal of furniture moving, and a couple of dedicated hours, but I now have a new space.  The change-up, thus far, is still in the new and exciting stage.  But when I sit down here, it’s already starting to feel familiar.  And some of the habits and desires I had while sitting in that other spot are just plain gone, which is what I needed.

I haven’t written much yet, but I can already feel like it’s going to be a good thing.

I did get some paperwork out of the way, and wrote a flash fic, so I’m moving in the right direction.  And so here in my new space, I’ll break ground on Something Like Trust…the followup to Something Like Hope.

**Something Like Hope will be available at the end of June from Amber Quill Press.

    It’s surprising sometimes how our minds work, isn’t it? I know when I got rid of some furniture a few years ago, the memories attached to them went too – so it was a physical and a mental clearing.

    Good luck with the new story!
