Okay, maybe not just like that, but close. I’ve had so many things I wanted to get done before the end of the year and I’m running out of time. At least I’ll have plenty to keep me occupied in January.
Despite all good intentions, I’ve not yet started my next novel. I have submitted several short stories and had a really lovely rejection on a longer piece. I’ve also decided I need a much more structured marketing/social media/blog/newsletter strategy. My current ad hoc method is losing cohesion and when I do sit down to do something, I lose concentration and find myself watching videos of pandas.
It’s not been the easiest couple of months. I’m on the cusp of the first anniversary of my dad’s passing, and my day job is under threat of closure. I guess just one of those things would be enough to throw my writing off kilter, so I’m probably expecting too much of myself to write while dealing with both.
Music makes me feel better, and nothing more so than some sentimental Christmas tunes, so I’m going to leave you with this. Hopefully I’ll get at least one more post in before Christmas.
