Sorry for missing a post yesterday. Things are going a mile a minute around here. I’ve made some interesting discoveries about writing:
- It’s hard to write when you work two hours of overtime two days in a row. Between leaving work around 7 and doing errands, I got home around 8:45 last night. That was before dinner. So yeah, I went to bed at twelve and that was with forcing myself to write a paragraph or two in the paranormal thriller short story before falling asleep. (Having to wake up at 3:30am this morning to make a flight didn’t help…)
- It’s hard to write when you have to pack for a convention. Forgot to mention that… So got home at 8:45, had to eat and pack… Went light in the packing this time. Just clothes and toiletries…
- On days like yesterday, you just have to lower the standards. I have incredibly high standards for how much I want to accomplish. Normally I beat myself up over missing goals, but some days I just have to take life as it is and write a paragraph and be happy about it. Life is to short.
I know so many of you are working hard trying to meet your goals and balance that with life. You are doing awesome! Keep at it and don’t give up!
I’m in Memphis today at Midsouthcon, so come on by and stop by the Dark Oak Table!
