Come at me, Week Four. It’s an exciting time to be alive. I went to my very first AFL game yesterday, after spending all week working through Save The Cat Writes A Novel. Well, when I wasn’t sleeping. What is it about antidepressants and sleeping? Just call me Princess Aurora. Yikes.
Anyway, here we go. Let’s get this book written.
Most Mondays begin the same way. I wake up, I do my morning routine, take my meds, then sit down at my desk with a heart full of hope and plans for days.
And, then, nothing.
Today, I was determined to do something different. Yesterday, when I was busy trying to find a tiny yellow ball on a massive footy field, I was thinking about how I’d gone all day without napping – something unusual for me at the moment. I figure it has a lot to do with keeping my brain stimulated. It gets bored, it goes to sleep. Kind of makes sense.
I suspect a lot of neurodivergent people will tell you that lists are awesome. So, today, I wrote a To Do List.
The best part was, the To Do List got To Done.

It was another day of To Do Lists, newsletter writing, cleaning up a mess on my blog and social media.
Somehow, the newsletter took up a LOT of the day. MailChimp have had a site update, so their mail builder is different and, well, nek minnit – here comes the sun(set).
Good news is, it’s done. That was a big hurdle for me.
Eventually got around to writing and clocked up 300 words – massive I know. The good news is, I’m still on target, so it’s all good.
Oh, and I managed to give a little love to the side hustle, too. More on that later.

Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
It’s Monday morning as I write this and I legitimately cannot remember the end of last week. #sorrynotsorry.
Shall we call it a draw and move on to a new week? We should? Good call.
See you on the flip side.
