I’m glad that Nano is over! I can go back to writing at a slow and glacial pace! I laugh out loud, but it’s true. Ever since I hit 50k, my writing has slowed. It’s taken me about a week to get almost halfway done with Episode 5 of Heroes of Lunde. It’s supposed to be a two-parter, but I’m unsure how I can make this happen since I’m horrible at cliffhangers. I’m also still pantsing, so I’m not sure if what I come up with will support a two-parter. I’m going to try.
I’ve been a little stressed because I don’t currently have a job. I’ve been “enjoying” sleeping in until noon or 1:00, but it’s all adding up to my depression about not having a purpose. I’m “supposed” to move to Phoenix in March, but I’m losing the startup money I got because of my extravagant spending. What does this have to do with writing? I’m not using the extra time I have to do any writing, like I wanted to. Having a job helped me prioritize my writing time. Now that I have all the time in the world, I’m not so focused on writing. I take that time to play on Facebook and sleep. I need to learn the discipline of making writing my job. I want to become a successful writer who makes a living off of my writing. How can I do that if I can’t prioritize my time? I need to organize my time! Meowth! That’s right!
I hope to get The Heroes of Lunde published in 2018. I need this to happen! I hope I can identify what’s stopping me and overcome it. I need help and faith.
