I've been running around like crazy preparing for school to start. I know that's one reason Alex has more time to visit blogs, he doesn't have kids! They're ridiculous time eaters! But they're great fun, too. Summer has gone by quick.
Now, on to my Insecure Writer's Support Group report. Everyone is welcome! (use the link to Alex's list)
For someone with a patience problem, I sure chose a hurry up and wait profession. I would gladly knock out 1,000+ words a day, but with everything else going on, I'm lucky to write a few sentences. I want to hurry up and finish my draft. It's always calling me, wondering where I am. At least keeping busy takes my mind off the rest of the things I'm waiting for:
- results from a book fair application
- sales numbers - which probably won't be the greatest, but I'd still like to know!
- responses to book signing event requests
- reviews - these take time, I know. And I love the updates from my friends telling me which chapter they are on, so I try not to dwell on this one. Especially since I'm such a slow reader. Here's an awesome review from my friend, Huntress! And Amazon asked my friend Rhonda if she'd like to read Pop Travel!
So, good stuff is happening, I just need to enjoy it and get to things in their time. Any advice on how to be patient? My brain feels like it's going to crack from the pressure I put on it! So much I want to do!
