I just finished my 40 mile drive into work and have 40 minutes before my workday officially begins. I tried to write a post over the holiday weekend, but I barely had time to get on the computer. I had planned to write this post last night, but between tending to a fussy baby, returning emails, and fighting a sinus infection, I again was unable to sit down and concentrate on writing a post. This has been what my entire month of August has felt like. The word of the month is:
I've felt behind all month, and the constant feeling has been absolutely draining. I've accomplished a decent amount of editing in my new manuscript, but it's only a fraction of what I had planned to accomplish last month. September can't be a repeat of August. If I want to one day support myself through my writing, I can't wallow in self-pity and succumb to complacency. I need the drive, passion, and persistence to propel myself forward. Excuses will not get me where I want to go.Catch-up
*Taking a moment to breathe*
I hope August has been productive for you. Summer is ending and I look forward to the changing seasons. Cooler weather with a hot cup of coffee feels like ideal writing weather. But waiting for ideal doesn't build momentum. I know that; I just need to actually apply what I know. It's time to get back to work. Thanks for your support, and as always, thank you for reading!
