Time for a change?

I've been feeling restless and I'm not sure why.  Last week I 'celebrated' my 8 year anniversary of being in my current job.  8 years!  I've never even lived in one country for 8 years, let alone held down a job for that long.  And next week I have a major birthday.

So maybe that's why I'm feeling restless.

But I don't know what to do about it.  It could be partly because I'm between writing projects and don't have anywhere to toss my creative energy.  It could be that I'm suffering a little bit of depression over my writing career - or lack of it.

I don't know....

I just think something needs to change.  But what?


  1. Not sure, but when you figure it out let me know ;)

  2. Maybe a genre switch. A short story in something new may spark the creative flame. :)

  3. Oh yes, I like Sarah's suggestion! And happy birthday :).

  4. That's longer than I've ever spent at one job. Congrats! Maybe this milestone will lead to some new inspiration.

  5. When in doubt, a new hair color and new style always help! They'll make you feel like a new person. How about blonde bob like Marilyn Monroe? :-)

    1. Well I am going to get my hair done next week.... Probably not blonde, but I may go for something insane. I usually do.

  6. When I'm antsy or need a change, I like to read a good book. Great ideas sometimes come to me there. Playing the piano also relaxes me and frees my brain to think of new possibilities.
