To Write More, Write More
Ahem. Is this thing on? *Blows dust off neglected WordPress*
Long time, my friends. Long time indeed. I don’t have a good excuse. I have a few reasons, but none of them really constitute an actual excuse for my lack of writing. I’m broke. I’ve just changed jobs and now have two. I’m financially skint. I’m a lazy arse. I’m unmotivated and ever-so-slightly depressed about my writing. Pick one. Or pick them all. Regardless, life seems to have gotten in my way yet again. As I move into my 27th year on this planet, I seem to be running into the whole money dilemma more and more. Primarily that there never seems to be enough of it in my bank account in order to satisfy silly little things like rent and credit card bills, of which there are too many. And so in a great effort to get my life on track, I’ve decided to work two jobs. If only finishing the next draft of my novel would be a guarantee of financial de-stressing.
In spite of the nail-biting and hand-wringing that occupies my brain most days, I’m making a couple of small goals that I see as sort of…future investments. While my writing may never pay off monetarily, it is something I have to try and therefore worth doing. So I’ve decided to go with the little goal of blogging at least once a week.
I have indeed been doing some revision and rewriting of Primeval. I like (and I mean really like) the couple big changes I’ve gone for off the bat. There is a lot of work to do and seemingly less time to do it in than I would like, but it is happening. Slowly. It’s even formatted nicely the way many agents like — Courier is my new friend.
So there you have it. Wish me luck and lots of motivation. In fact, feel free to plant your foot in my behind if you feel it’s not in gear.
See you next week! (Hopefully sooner.)
