I normally don’t post very many personal things on here. But, I figured it was time to vent a little and give you a little snippet on what I’m going to be up to going forward.
The last 4 months have been exhausting for me. I’ve been working both a full & part time job, besides trying to keep up with my various writing and editing projects. You might not be able to tell from everything I have going on, but I’ve reached my limit. Something has to give…and I’ve decided it will be the pointless PT job.
What does this mean?
I’m going to kick it up another notch the next few months.
Really, it came down to this: prior to 4 months ago I had no trouble saying, “Sure, I can complete a novella for you in a month. No problem.” Then bam! It’d be done. Or, “You need a short story in two days? No problem.” Bam! Done, again. Needless to say, the last few months haven’t been that way. Sure, I still have plenty of things coming out during the next two years, but during the last 4 months I had to start carefully planning each and every turn-in date to make sure I could meet it. And even though deadlines are the name of the game (and to some extent I actually dig them) this isn’t the way I like doing things.
Fact of the matter is – I like to write. A lot. My output can be pretty staggering when I actually have the time to do it.
The last 4 months haven’t been that way.
Instead, I’ve had to carefully plan when I was going to sit down and do some writing, editing, whatever.
Two weeks and I’m done.
That’s my plan, my notice, to my PT job employer come this evening.
2 & Done.
Yup. That’s right.
