Starting a new day job is a bit disruptive. It’s even more so when, you’re brought on board ahead of a service launch. It’s meant that my days have been varied and a bit all over the place all whilst trying to learn the role I’ll be playing once the service launches. This week things are starting to settle down a little and there’s the beginnings of a routine appearing.
I’m glad. The new day job’s disruption has been felt wider than just 9 to 5 and both my reading and writing have suffered because of this. I accepted this, knowing it to only be temporary. It’s given me time to take a step back and reflect on my writing.
I have another major disruption looming when I move in the next couple of weeks. I really need to start packing and expect that when I do, it’s going to swallow a lot of my time.
But still, there’s a part of me that wants to start reintroducing a bit of structure, try and reclaim a little reading and writing time. In a couple of weeks, I’ll be moved and settled into my job, but I don’t really want to leave it until then.
