You know how, when you’ve been in the middle of a big project for a long time, and it starts to wrap up, it’s sometimes a bit…disorienting?
Like you were so in it for so long that you got kind of used to that um, let’s say ‘heightened,’ level of fluster and panic and stress? And then when you finish, and things start to calm down, you maybe find you’ve kind of forgotten how to chill? Like you keep looking around for the thing you’re absolutely sure you’ve forgotten you need to be doing, but you really can’t find it, because you sort of already did the thing?
Yeah…yeah that’s pretty much where I am right now. (Please for the love of wool, someone else tell me they do this, if it turns out I’m the only one I will feel even more like a weirdo than I already do, and I’m not sure I can take that right now.)
Tiny Nonsense website is launched (you’re on it right now). The returning patterns are live. And the patreon is up and running.
And everything is, as far as I can tell, working smoothly. Like…the three of the giant tasks that have occupied the majority of my waking hours for the last several months are…done?
Of course that’s not to say that there won’t still be little things to track down and sort out. But as far as I can tell, that’s just part of being alive. But the big things…the big things appear to be done. And my brain is not quite sure what to do with itself.
So I’m going to go pack books for the patreon folks who have books coming. Because that will honestly feel delightfully mellow and chill and fun at this point (plus, it doesn’t involve me sitting at my desk staring at a screen, which is a welcome change after the last few weeks).
And then…then maybe I’ll be able to tell my brain to chill (if you’ve got any favorite tricks for convincing your brain that a task is done and it can relax, I’m all ears).
Because I’m pretty sure it’s done. I’m pretty sure I did the thing!
