Breaking Rules Like an Artist
I had planned a heavy dose of writing my first week of school break, right…? Guess how many words I wrote last week? 743. That’s a far cry from the 15,000 I had planned to produce by now.
On the other hand, I’m super-proud to announce the successful completion of my editing job: Gayla’s Something to Curse About went live today, and seems to be picking up steam over in the UK to match the series’ book 1 performance. It’s quite a thrill to be involved in something that is starting to see some commercial success… But I need to learn the rule about not being distracted by someone else’s shiny objects…
The good news for my goals and plans: Tomorrow is my Friday at my day job. I get a whole 5 days away from the office, and have minimal plans to leave the house or be disturbed by guests, family, or other distractions. It’s entirely possible for me to catch up with myself if I can find the focus I was able to dedicate to this past weekend.
So I’m going to wish you and yours a happy holiday that lets you break some of those pro rules and grow into your inner artist. And I will once again point you to the rest of the ROW80 crew to help cheer them on as they face the end of another round’s goals.
