I’ve been feeling (understandably) pretty flat for the past week, and have been having a lot of trouble motivating myself to do anything (other than play solitaire or stare mindlessly at the TV). So after a self-indulgently lazy day yesterday failed to improve my mood at all, I decided it was time to force myself back into things, and took myself out on a long walk this afternoon to deliver flyers for MrPloppy and release a few books along the way.
And the fresh air, bright sunshine and exercise seem to have done the trick, even if only temporarily. I actually feel a bit more like I can face the world now. And hopefully as an added bonus I’ll get a decent sleep tonight (another thing that’s been lacking all week).
The releasing books certainly worked to boost my mood, anyway, because I got a catch from one of them (Surviving the Flood by Stephen Minot) before I even managed to get home to make release notes. That always brings a smile to my face 🙂
The other books I released on my walk were: Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey; Strathgallant by Laura Black; The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing by Marilyn Durham; Shadows of Yesterday by Sandra Brown; Jackon’s Dilemma by Iris Murdoch; and Winds of Enchantment by Rosalind Brett. I was going to say none of them were themed releases, but I’ve just realised that releasing Winds of Enchantment in a toilet could almost count as one 😉
