Same old, same old with me.
I’ve been working a lot and not spending as much time as I need to be spending on my writing or my current TBR pile… I’m afraid I’ll not reach the end of these books anytime soon…
I’m really hoping to spend this weekend working on a few revisions and some edits for a new project of mine. I’m excited to see this one through to the end. It’s only one of a few stories I’ve come up with that I honestly have no idea what the ending will be like, so It’s bringing up a few new challenges and struggles for me.
I’ve been tinkering with the idea (and doing some light research) on finding a literary agent for my books… Not sure what will come of this just yet, but it’s an idea that has come to mind a few times and I feel it’s worth the energy to look into a bit more.
On the TBR pile note: I’ve stacked up a good …12…16… I honestly lost count lol
But! I’m determined to finish at least one before the month is over! So I need to get cracking on it!
My reading pace has slowed way down since this time last year…ugh… I need to work on bringing it back up to snuff
Anyway! There’s my mini life update 🙂
Happy Holidays my creative friends!!!
Tiss the season for happy thoughts and shared moments with close family and friends.
And me, I’m sitting here just working on some paperwork and getting this 2nd draft underway. Honestly, I’m bad when it comes to socializing. I’d much rather (and feel more comfortable) sitting at my desk or on my couch, working away on the tasks at hand.
And I tell ya, this writing thing is rough. It’s hard to find time to write and it’s not always easy explaining to people why it’s so important me.
Lately, I’ve become a very firm believer in working on myself before anything else. And yes, that means being selfish and self centered by focusing on my personal goals above what others would like of me.
So that means I blow off a few friends (sorry guys) and social plans so I can have more time to focus on my writing and honing my skills.
Not the nicest thing I know…But hey! Sometimes you gotta do you boo!
I can’t say I’ve found the perfect balance yet but I can say I’m working on it as the days go on.
I’m trying to do my best these days to spend my time wisely and organize my goals by what’s the most important to me in the long run, not just for that moment.
So here’s to 2017 being the start of something even greater than what’s already planned 😊
