So, I’m an utter FAIL on the whole post a day thing. It was going so great until life - or rather school – got in the way. That’s right, the Masters just got real people: the thesis semester has begun. Which is good, because that means I’m almost done, but it’s also bad because I have this monumental work that I have to pound out on the keyboard.
I had a moment of totally freaking out, and for those that know me personally, you know I’m one of those “I can totally do that” kinda gals. Well guys, I not only thought I couldn’t do this, but I believed it so much that I was ready to withdraw from the class and try again in a month or so. I was freaking out and I don’t do that. Stress is such a constant companion to me that it feels like a fifth limb, or extra head or something equally grotesque and terrifying, but this time, I thought that I’d reached my limit.
I tell you this not for sympathy, but for a bit of realism. Yes, we all get bogged down once in a while. We all second-guess ourselves. We all have moments of insecurity.
Now, I’m totally cool with it. I mean, I’ve cranked out half-decent 300 page novels in a month’s time, I can do this 100 pager in three months. It’s all good.
…or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
So, anyway, I’ve decided that though I LOVE my blog very much and love my readers even more, I’m just going to have to pull back on the posts and do the best I can. I’m busy, busy writing for other sites too, so basically all I do is write, read, study, write, eat, sleep, play with my kiddo when she gets home, write, read, study, write, sing a little, study, read, and write some more. Did I mention that I’m writing?
