Transitions

Ch-ch-changes. 'Tis the season for them. We in the US just elected a new President, but he doesn't take office until the current President's term ends. The weather is playing games here in the Midwest (nothing new!) and I'm layering for the different times of day. I'd already put away my T-shirts once and turned on my heat, but then we've had a few weeks of 70 degree weather. Today I'm back in light-weight, long sleeves, but those Ts will stay handy. We've celebrated Halloween and look toward Thanksgiving.
On a personal level, I'm at the end of one book and beginning the process for the next. My CP (critique partner) has the bulk of the "old" one to review. She'll no doubt find plot holes, loose threads, logic flaws, and plain old typos. Bless her heart! So that book isn't really "finished."
And I'm trying to adjust to new contacts! This is the hardest of the changes for me, but like the revisions I anticipate, I know it'll be better once I've adjusted.
Are you a person who dislikes change? I know a lady who just won't move because of the upheaval it would bring. Why do you think we resist change when we deal with it everyday?
Until the next thing comes along, take care.

Some changes I dislike and moving would be one of them. I'm like the lady you know. I think we resist change because it pushes us out of our comfort zone and upsets out daily lives.

You're right, Ellen. The bookstore where I work is in process of moving, and it's not only a lot of physical work, but mentally, we're in a state of exhaustion and confusion as well. WAAY out of our comfort zones.
