As with anything in life, it's important to maintain some sense of balance. A lot of my mental energy is going into pushing the freelance copywriter stuff now so I need to remember to take time for the other parts of my creative life I enjoy.
Reading is usually the first thing to go, but I zipped through Denis Johnson's 'Train Dream' yesterday and it felt wonderful to be back in the throws of a good story. The daily journal is making a slow comeback with recordings of the trivial, everyday and more consequential. And eventually, I want to get back to my creative journal with writing exercises. That always felt like a nice safe space to just play and experiment with words, stories and ideas. With some kind of routine in place for driving the freelance work forward, it will do me good to slowly get back to my books and journals. Balance.
