If you want to know anything about me, know that I love order. I organize for fun. I work best in a clean, tidy environment. And now, chaos has fallen.
Two weeks ago, a large pile of props filled my living room. I co-designed StoryForge’s table for Wyrd Con, and therefore collected, organized and stored the items in preparation for the con. Even though it was a pain for a while, the work and mess completely paid off. The StoryForge team had a fun, exhausting weekend at our beautiful vendor table.
Even after the props cleared, my home’s state has shifted for the worse. Boxes are everywhere. Shelves are empty. Junk that I haven’t seen for years has resurfaced and demanded my attention. This sounds like complaining, right? Well, I suppose it is. A little. But this messy process is joyful, because my husband and I are moving into our new home. We will hopefully get keys tomorrow, so let the chaos come!
…before it seriously rains down, I’m going to distract myself with a pot of tea, hide away in the most orderly part of the house (which happens to be the kitchen, today) and write. I’ve got to finish the novel by July 1st!
