Yep, despite my off and on posting, and wandering all over the place topics wise…
Miracles happen, LOL.
I’m grateful for everyone that has decided to follow me also. Thank you all. 🙂
Related to all of this, I have been reflecting on the blog and my writing since getting back from Hawai’i. Aside from the lessons I’ve mentioned in past posts, I’ve realized that I need to get my life better organized. I also need to re-focus on my actual writing instead of dancing around it like I have been the last few months.
Being in Hawai’i and having life on hold for a week, and then coming home, I realized just how spread thin I’ve felt (hell, actually been). Worse, it’s led to a sort of analysis paralysis. Trying to juggle priorities and adapt to a steady stream of changes has resulted in me just outright shutting down at times. That, of course, only makes things worse, because it allows things to backlog even further. If I’m going to regain control of my life and work on my writing, the pattern needs to change.
Dancing around my writing… That, I believe, is a combination of time issues and some lingering doubts about writing erotica. Instead of actually doing writing, I’m writing about everything else.
Granted, I also don’t want to blog work that I can potentially publish and sell. I can write about writing rules, philosophy and strategy as well as come up with stories that are “Fan Fiction” or such and therefore can’t be published for profit without a licensing agreement. Nothing wrong with other material also, so long as it’s not the bulk of my writing here. It’s all about balance. A writing blog has to be about writing though.
