I’m motoring along this week, working on my (crummy) screenplay, packaging up books to mail off to contest winners and far flung friends, writing a quiz for Mythology class, working on a couple of stories, instant messaging with Sheri about Paris. I’m feeling the need for a little pampering—even if I have to do it myself. I need some peace and love in my life, y’know? I talk a good game about taking care of myself, but I really don’t. Not for any duration, anyway. I need to get better about that.
I need to learn to say, “No.” I need to find people who want to drink margaritas with me and laugh—a lot. I need to not get sucked into the woes of other people—I neither want nor need to be a cast member in their dramas. I prefer comedies. Romantic ones. With hot sex, preferably. I need to get up and dance—I have a lot to celebrate. I need to get out and have fun—that’s the perk that comes with the freedom I have in my life. I need to write for myself instead of agonizing over whether something is good and interesting and entertaining (whether fiction or blogging). I need to indulge myself—and to hell with everyone else—for a change.
How about you? What do you need?
