Taking the pressure off...

I feel like I have awoken after a long and restful sleep, ever since I decided to put my new novel on hold for a bit and focus on the screenplays. I was really stressing about what I had to write next and as I have said earlier, my heart just wasn't ready to let go of my friends in my debut novel Navel Gazing, after 3+ years together. I have also realized that my husband isn't crazy when he says that I need to leave the computer and my desk every once in a while, and not just when friends are in town. Apparently walking the dog and going to Larchmont for Pinkberry do not count as rejuvenating activities. It seems my glass has been stuck at half full and I need to fill it up before sitting down and writing my heart heart out for another 3 years! Imagine that? Well, I have to tell you there's a lot going on outside my little apartment and now that I have had a taste of it (quite literally, foodie that I am)...I can't get enough! We went to see the brilliant and hilarious Ricky Gervais last night at The Kodak theater, had drinks with friends at the Roosevelt and tonight are off to a birthday party! I hung out with a dear friend of mine on Wednesday night, indulging in tapas and sangria, who at half my age, kept me out way past my bedtime. And there's more! This week we are going to eat lobster on the beach, and watch the sunset...just because... and then see a play downtown on the weekend. I am having a summer vacation and reading my screen writing books and writing my essays and wandering the city, and the strangest thing is happening...my brain is starting to get all sorts of ideas, and characters and scenarios. Imagine that.

Woo hoo! love it. You are a social butterly , spread those wings - I realize you may have to dust them off a bit from being scrunched up at the computer - but they are so beautiful and you become so alive in the social setting n'all. What's your ideal day bub?
