IWSG - June

June already! That means it's IWSG time.

There are a lot of emotions connected with writing fizzing away inside of me at the moment. Insecurity is in the mix, but largely drowned out by the others.

There's excitement over a potential new project, optimism about that and my short stories. Anticipation of trips away in the van (my mobile office) where I hope to meet up with some of my writing buddies.  There's also a touch of doubt that I'm going to fit in everything this summer.

I'd much rather be busy than bored though, so it's mostly good. How about you?

Hope all your plans for the summer become a reality for you. I love being busy but there are times when I want to do nothing but read. As for boredom, I don't like it at all.

Excitement over a new project is always wonderful. I agree, being busy is always great. Good-luck. I know you will fit everything in.

What is bored?
Busy people get things done. You'll have a very productive summer.

Like you I'd much rather be busy. Hope you manage to fit everything in :)

Oh I hate being bored. That's one of the worst things anyone can do to me. I wish I could commune with nature endlessly, but that only last a little bit. Then, I need more. I like how busy you sound, Patsy. Keep it up!

Rosemary Johnson said...

Yep, always busy rather than bored. Too busy probably.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Patsy - couldn't agree more ... I hate being bored. Good luck with all the decisions - but you've got the writing set up and that's priority! Cheers Hilary

Patsy said...

Thanks, Pat!

Patsy said...

I doubt I will - but I can have fun trying!

Patsy said...

I will, Alex - even if I only do half of what I've got planned.

Patsy said...

Thank you!

Patsy said...

Doing my best, Jacqui!

Teresa Ashby said...

Busy is so much better than bored :-) xx

Patsy said...

I'm trying not to be too busy, Rosemary - it can be hard to tell though.

Patsy said...

Yes, the writing set up is sorted, Hilary, so I have no excuse not to produce plenty of words.

Patsy said...

It is, Teresa.

I don't plan on much happening this summer, but keeping busy.

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

Wow, whirlwinds heading your way, Patsy! Hang on tight!

Patsy said...

A lot of not much, Oscar?

Patsy said...

Does feel that way at times, Elizabeth.

I'd always rather be busy than bored, too. Sounds like a fab summer!

A new project? Sounds intriguing.
I can't remember the last time I was bored - probably years ago when I was working for money not love. These days I just get frustrated at not having enough hours in the day for all the things I want to do!

Patsy said...

I'm feeling optimistic, Alexia.

Patsy said...

I've had some boring 'proper' jobs too, Linda. Don't miss that aspect of being employed.
