I hid in the forest all weekend. I didn’t do much writing, I sat and thought a lot. Sometimes, when projects are involved, I get to the point where I need to stop all work and let my brain stretch for a bit – which is exactly what Saturday and Sunday were about.
As I continue to weave words in my novel, I’m also in the midst of writing some reports at work. One of the reports I’m writing is a social media manifesto for the CEO. It blows my mind that from my experiments in the land of electric social-ness, I’ve learned me a thing or two about how different cats and kittens interact in these parts. Still, when my boss sat me down with “Whip us out some pages on what you reckon…” I choked on my espresso.
Fast forward to last weekend, sitting and thinking. I did a lot of reading. I read about things not directly associated with projects I’m doing, but various types of stuff that made my mind work in different ways. I read about things that have gone viral online, I read about high-net investing (yup, happened) and I watched a documentary on Einstein with my Daddy.
Apparently, Einstein liked to sit and think too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not comparing the two of us. However from what I can tell, we’re both weirdos, and we both seem to get something out of sitting and thinking. Einstein liked to sit and think so much, he got his first wife to sign a contract that involved bringing his meals to his desk so he didn’t have to get up from thinking.
I don’t think I’d take it that far. In fact, I think I’m all set for the moment. I’ll spend the next few days scribbling down what my brain has processed. Here’s to Monday, and a fabulous week to you and yours.
