Today, I’ve been working on ideas for my personal website and looking at things I can do with Morning Sky Studios as well.
I had to take the newly arrived books over to the Magic Valley Arts Council, so I didn’t want to get involved in anything too much this morning. It didn’t help that I woke up with business on my mind (which means it must be Tuesday). So I sat down and started looking at a few things. Then I drove to Twin Falls to deliver the books. It gave me time to think about a few extra things, which of course I had to try out when I got home.
So, writing this blog is the first writing I’ve done today.
It was when I was cleaning up dishes from dinner tonight that my book started ribbing me to get to work on it, Even now, I can feel it drawing me down even deeper like a siren’s call. I might be up late tonight.
I did move my Events page over to here. There’s now a page link off to the right for events where I’ll be and shows I’m in. I’m hoping that being here, it will be easier for me to keep up to date. That’s why I’m trying to centralize everything. I feel like I’m spread out and not able to pull things together. I don’t know if I’ll ever get away from having to use several different sites, but I’m trying to get it pulled into a hub. That’s what I was trying with my personal site over the last couple of years, but I don’t feel it was as effective as I wish it would have been. Putting together a store seemed impossible. The one thing I always seem to come back to is my blog. So, it might be time to have that be my central hub with everything else revolving around that. And that’s what I’m trying to accomplish.
Worse even are the fights my creative voice has with my critical voice over business decisions. I can throw myself faster into a bad mood than anything just by working between my ears on what I want to do. Over the last month, I’ve had to remind myself more times than I want to think about to chill out and that nothing has to last forever, to play and have fun and to see what happens. If I try something and it doesn’t work, oh well, I unplug it and move in a different direction. Nothing has to last forever. But I should at least try it. Especially since I seem to be overhauling my website every three years or so anyway. Geez! See? These fights are lovely fun, and that’s just a small go-around. The larger ones usually send me to bed before I get too frustrated with myself and end up in a funk. I sometimes wish I could turn it off and go write instead. But once my left brain starts yabbering (which tends to happen on Tuesdays and Wednesdays), there’s no stopping it.
At least now that I know which two days it prefers, I know when to do my best business planning and can reserve the other days for creativity.
So, you’ll probably see some changes coming here soon as I wrangle things around. My blog will stay here, but I think things around it will change. I just hope I don’t break something or have the unexpected happen. I’m nervous about and having something go south fast. I keep trying to tell myself that it will be okay. I tested things today and I’m excited about what I can do. I just need to pull the trigger and get to building.
Good thing tomorrow is Wednesday and another left-brained day for me.
