One of my survival skills is to make sure that there is always something in my life to look forward to. I’m not going to enroll in my MFA program this semester, though I hope to make some progress (eventually) on my thesis/novel (when I can write again). Now I’ve got to think about what I can do to keep my progress going, keep myself motivated, regain my memories and mind, etc.
In lieu of school–what can I do? Things to consider
- The AWP Conference
- Just chilling out.
- Lots of reading, once I can read.
Hrm. I need to work on pumping up that list. That pathetic list may be a lot of why I’ve been feeling low.
Update: I’ve come to realize that I’m up against a lot of my lifelong habits on this one. I’ve always depended on my brain/memory for entertainment and stimulation, and here I am, looking for physical-based, non-brainiac sources of stimulation. Oh boy.
