I’m planning a hermitage, within my own home, for the end of this month. I’m starting to look forward to it, but I also don’t quite know how it will work.
My husband is traveling to a conference in New York for five days. I considered taking off (both going along and going elsewhere), but I think this is a good idea.
So far this year (it’s actually not new to 2009, though) I’ve been trying to figure out how to fit writing into my days. It’s more difficult to find a home for in the schedule that some other things, because I can’t seem to do it when there’s someone else in the house. Writing also requires a decent-sized block of time.
I’m sure I won’t contain my activities to writing alone — I’m certainly not practiced enough for that. I know I’ll read, and knit, and hopefully spin, as well. I do hope to make significant progress on a few of the ideas swimming in my head, though.
I’m thinking about food for this time. And access to/restriction of the internet. Of course I’ll close my browser while actually attempting to write. But otherwise? I don’t know yet.
This is entirely new to me. Anyone have ideas of what I should do to make this time successful? Or what kind of expectations I should have? I’m prone to setting extremely high expectations. In this, though, I really don’t want to be disappointed.
Oh, and *whispers* today’s my birthday! 🙂
