Vulnerability and shame and identity and self-care and models and imperfection and … woah. And a bit of Kenneth Slessor.
I wrote the above sentence and embedded the video six weeks ago.
Then I went on holiday (where I was supposed to do some research but, family stuff), then I came back and got seconded to the a project that I was first calling One Website to Rule Them All, and then The Giant Web Project of Doom, and now I’m the team leader and it’s just The Project with A Lot to Do and an Awesome Team, so that’s cool, but time consuming. And then I got flu (lying in bed holding onto the wall because the room was spinning flu) and I’m still draggy after it.
I’m teaching a massive Business course on Wednesday nights, which means getting to Shut Up and Write makes it a 12 hour day, and I haven’t always managed it. But ALL the progress I have made was when I did… so I need to find a way through that.
All of this means–I wrote to my editor on the Monday after the due date, and asked for an extension till 1 November. And got it, without any hassle.
So–NO BEING PERFECT. And get more sleep. Also, Brené Brown = awesome. Now, more Slessor.
