Had to take a few days off writing for various personal reasons so I'm lagging behind on all fronts. Was unable to keep the meeting at the bookshop and had to cancel the meeting with the poet - both of which will now have to be rearranged. Thought I may have had to cancel NaNoWriMo next month at one point, but it's back on again.
Work was awful. We've been advised that come December we are all being shifted from the relative calm of our current 'just-outside-the-city-centre-leafy-suburb', to the burly hub that is Edinburgh's west end.
I don't want to move for various reasons:
- Longer to travel to work
- Longer to get home
- No Clark's Bar
- No Club Sandwich coffee shop
- Lots of noise and bustle every day
But then, moving could be to my advantage, too:
- A change of scenery might brighten things up
- The building we are in can get refurbished (we are supposedly moving back in 6 months)
- I'll be nearer the shops
Hopefully I can pick up the remains of this month's GDR and make some impact before the end of the month. I may have to prioritise and drop some items.
Hope the plusses end up outweighing the minuses at your work move. Sometimes a change of scenery can work wonders - even though a longer commute will definitely be a pain.
