Time to Gear Up!

My writing productivity has hit a major decline since I started working my new full-time job--if not for the abundance of drafting I did during my months of unemployment, I'd be incredibly behind.

But, as you may know from the guest post I did on Jeff Hargett's blog, "I don't have time" is not a valid excuse. At least, not in my book. And while I have been (slowly) working on edits for two MSs, I haven't actually drafted anything since February. I am determined to see that change!

I have a five-day vacation--glorious vacation--next week, and I intend to use that break to re-enter drafting mode and begin THE GLASS MAGICIAN. I'm especially hoping that my excitement for this book (and it's romantic-tension-packed goodness) will further inspire me to write after long days of creativity-thwarting technical editing. Stay tuned.

Side note: I've also determined to limit my Arrested Development escapades and make more time for reading. Woohoo!

  2. Finding time to write in the face of job obligations, family and other activities--seems to always to be a challenge.

  3. Proud of you for getting yourself back into drafting mode! It's tough. As you know, I haven't been able to do it for years. ;-)

  4. Hi Charlie! Thank you for visiting my blog. Perhaps I should tell you that opinions are divided about whether treading on a cockroach spreads their eggs or not. I prefer to err on the side of caution and wash my shoe after stomping.
    As for your writing hiatus - once you sit down the ideas that have been backing up will pour out!

  5. The Glass Magician is a most intriguing title. May all your drafts be prose and not from windows. :-) But yeah, full-time jobs have a way of sucking up free time like super-massive black holes.
