So I'm back to work today! I was dreading it. But you know what? My brain has strangely relaxed. There's something soothing about not having to think too much - knowing that I can complete an editing task by using skills that I have become comfortable with over the past six years - that I don't need to learn anything new, or create anything new in order to complete the task - all I have to do is tick everything off on my editing checklist by Thursday and wait for the courier to come and pick up the proofs. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.
Ahhh. Sometimes I forget, that it's fun not to be creative too. It's a nice and much needed break for my brain. Weird, yes, I have to agree. But I can't deny the weight that was lifted from my shoulders, the release of pressure that has built up over Christmas from a certain self-expectation, this morning when I put my head down and started checking off design's corrections on a set of final layout proofs.
