As much as I enjoy my hard-won free spirit reputation , I really do accomplish MUCH more with schedules and deadlines.
Now that the pattern business is taking off and actually paying back some of the money I've spent on yarn, I don't want to become so mired in 'work' knitting that I lose part of the joy.
Like many ADHD folk, I have a tendency to hyper focus on one thing and neglect everything else until I run down and wind up too exhausted to do the next important thing.
So I have been pondering what activities in my life I really want to focus on, with the goal of creating a workable weekly schedule incorporating all of them.
One unexpected outcome of the good pattern sales has been an increase in my self confidence; to the point that I plan to begin writing fiction again.
I also want to keep learning new tools for design and writing.
I also want to complete the first tier of the master Knitter's program offered by TKGA.
I feel the only way to make progress on these fronts is to work on them every week.
Add in the house reorganization, and of course time with my beloved Oscar, and time spent communicating with dear friends and my empty life feels pretty busy these days :-}
