It’s March Madness – in one of its many forms. I’ve finally put the last words into this draft of God of Mischief and have started looking through In Due Time. That’s pretty mad, right there.
Alright, I know I really should be further along than that, but life has been getting in the way. I don’t want to sound like I’m whining, but with transportation still an issue and income not coming in, I’m spending too much of my time worrying about things that are not writing. It’s just a sad fact of the writing life. I’d love it if I could devote all my mental energy to getting these stories out into the world, but that’s just not the way that it works.
I should be spending more time than I am reminding people that I have stories that are already published so they can buy and read those. I should be spending more time making sure that the covers for my stories are the best they can be. I should be spending even more time writing/editing the next one. Instead I’m filling out applications for aid and begging people to please just drop a few dollars in my tip jar. I’m spending just the right amount of time filling out applications for day jobs – but if I get one of those I’ll lose hours of creative time, but hopefully gain back energy I can spend creatively.
All in all, I can wish that things were different, but the important thing is that progress is being made.
