Here we are at the beginning of May. Well, close enough. After a week of unforeseen crap hitting this house, which really just means the entire house came down sick, most of which still have it, I’m finally feeling much better.
As the sickness kept me busy while I took care of the hubby man and youngest, not to mention the grandbabies it pushed my release date back a week as well. I had hoped to have the novel ready for release the week after next. However, it looks like it will fall closer to the end of May now.
Also, after a bout of horrible depression that was amplified by being sick, I have come out on top once more. Mental health isn’t a laughing matter and it should be something that is more readily talked about. Especially, as it takes a toll on so many people now. We should all feel more comfortable talking about it.
Camp NaNo was a bust for me. I managed to come nowhere near where I needed to be for the month. In fact, it was most definitely one of my least productive months of the year.
However, I have things worked out and I’m going to get back on track for the release of book three this year as well, if not four as well. So, now it is time to dig into work and get some of these books worked out. I also have a secret project I’ve been working on, along with a short story to get done.
So, there are many things to get accomplished. As of next week, I will be working regular hours. Clocking in and out like a normal job. I need that steady work hours to ensure that my brain and creativity show up every time. Not to mention, that I’m getting my work done.
No more wishy-washy, working not working. Writing is my job and passion and I need to treat it as such. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life, so it’s high time I take it seriously. I need regular work hours and regular work days. Right now, both are all over the map.
I will be posting regularly here on the blog as well. This is something that has grown laxer, like my writing. It has grown so bad that I did truly contemplate going to school or getting a regular job instead. Not having time to work and wasting the time I did have were not conducive to my goals. I had to reevaluate my life, my ambitions, and my career. When I knew that I still wanted this that much, I knew I had to put my writing as a priority.
This is my life and it’s about time I take control of it once more. Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
