Like most people, I hate moving. Especially since I am one of those packrats, only I collect paper. I have 25 bins of books after purging. I have another two dozen boxes (though smaller) that hold office stuff. And let’s not even talk about the clothes and shoes…
Moving should be an opportunity to declutter, to regroup and refocus. And it is. But come on, I’m a Gemini. Do you really think I have the attention span or the will power to truly declutter all the half-used notebooks of ideas I have laying around?
Still, I like the fresh start aspect of moving. A new domecile to make in my own image. A new office to feng shui. A new space to explore and enflame my creativity. It’s rocket-fueled inspiration, and it fires the imagination. At least that’s the plan. I’ll let you know how it goes once I settle in.
BY THE WAY, if you happen to have some free time on Wednesday between 5:30 and 8:30, Romance Writers of America are hosting a Literacy Signing at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta. The signing is open to the public, and proceeds are donated to Literacy. Please stop by and say hi, if you can.
