Once again, it’s been a long time since I posted anything – I appear to be making a habit of this! Now it’s time to crush that habit and start forming some new ones.
Study this year has been a whole lot harder than last, and I still have many months ahead of me. However, I have made the decision not to let it kick my ass anymore, and not to let it keep getting in the way of making the writing progress I want to. I’ve been feeling really frustrated these last few months with my inability to balance my academic writing and my creative writing, but I think what I was lacking, was focus.
And now I have it. I’m not laying out all my plans here, but I DO have some, and hopefully it will be a way to keep me on track – keep writing, revising, editing. I’m currently madly in love with the series I am working on – paranormal romance set in a small fictional NZ town – so that’s my primary focus at the moment. I’m not setting aside Sun-Touched, by any means, but I don’t have the right amount of head-space right now to rework it. As long as I have these assignments piling up, I think sticking to the more ‘fun’ easy writing is probably the best idea.
Fingers crossed it pans out! Better get back to some work hey?
How is everyone else doing? Is the year flying for you? Are you hitting your goals, or making new ones?
