Randomness as a personality factor?

Okay, maybe I'm not "that" random, but it's better than saying I have issues. I tell my kids I'm getting on in years and they laugh while they hand me water and try to get me to lie down. I suspect, like everyone else who comes to know me, they realize I'm not just burning the candle at both ends, but frying it in a skillet.

My doctor says that's not good, and throws in things like losing weight, taking blood pressure medicine, cholesterol medicine, more iron and slowing down. lol, like the day isn't short enough already. I've been busy with business and workshops. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking when I did the first workshop--it's not that I regret it, more like I love it...way too much. I can "see" this huge structure and it kills me that I might not have the time to get all the words out.

I need to post the end of the Running in the Dark series so I can archive it, but looking back on the workshop content, the last day's misc posting style doesn't work on a blog. Lee, from Ironhorse Formatting gave me a way to break down a power point, and I might do that, because I'm accumulating a lot of powerpoints. But video is calling again, and I think I've come a long way since my first set (and I'm much better at explaining).

Maybe it's just we are who we are, and we do what we love. But I've never been good at lecturing others about what maybe they should or shouldn't do. :o)

I'll gladly watch any new videos you create for our consumption.

You and my tiny audience, Deanna. I suspect in limiting myself to what I love, I limit the people I can reach--but then, I'm not trying to convert anyone, lol. So maybe that's a good thing.

Although, vain person that I am, I need a haircut before I do anything video-wise. I'm starting to look like Danny Partridge with the shagginess.

btw, you don't need to tell people anything. Being who you are is enough. Your writing has grace. :)

I get this. What was once "Hey, I'm going to wake up and write a book today. Whee!" got serious somewhere along the line. But I love to write. You have to. You don't sign on to let strangers kick you in the teeth if you don't. ;)

I know it's hard to slow down and take breaks, but you take care of yourself!

Remember--you, me, chicken nuggets. It's on in ATL! :D

Atlanta is good. I won't fly for an In and Out burger, but I'll fly for some Chik-fil-a and maybe--just maybe, this time RWA will approve my speakers application, lol. :)

Looking at you sternly--remember, the whole too much writing thing goes for you too. Just because you're finally getting the recognition you deserve doesn't mean you have to kill yourself. :)

I love your videos. But you sound as though you really need to take a break before you take anything else on(even though you love it)You're so generous and giving, your own needs are getting overlooked.
