ROW Update

This week is not a bust– but is a holding pattern. LOL I’m doing some plotting notes, I’m waiting for edits. *gasp* And, I’m doing minimal writing. The new job and it’s massive learning takes precedence this week. So, right now, that’s all I got. Hopefully come this weekend, I’ll have better news. LOL Right now– we’re looking at… Blech.

Plus side– we’re learning that Cyn can manage to shift to a nightly schedule after 3-4 days of pain. Not bad. Not bad at all. 😀 Plus at least one day of sleep. The writing is waiting, which is good. I’m hoping that once I feel a bit more comfortable with the new job needs, I can start picking up more of that writing. Right now, the new knowledge is amazingly huge. OMG, I can’t go into details, but let’s just say that my first two days of work resulted into over 10 pages of notes– front and back. Yeah, that kind of knowledge needed to tend customers. It’s good, but intense knowledge.

So for my update– I’m having a midweek slowdown. I’m doing some plotting cards- trying to write when I can. Plus, I’m reading to keep my sanity. This is about it until this weekend when I’ll have edits on PQR. *whimpers*

I’ll survive this and I’ll move forward in my day job. It’s having to adjust my writing that will be tough. That worries me but I know in time, it’ll be okay. I just need to keep up the faith and writing at least 3-5 days a week doing at least 2-3k each time. If I can do that, then I can accomplish everything I want. It’s a huge leap for me to think this way. And in some ways, it’s the thing that scares me– it’s something I’ve been trying to avoid– giving myself a specific writing amount to try for- but I need to give me something to work for. There are reasons– I have a job and I have my dream job– that as an author. I need to be able to keep things moving forward.  Continue reading
