June 28, 2009 at 10:59 am (Writing Journal)

It’s Sunday. Another week gone by. No progress. Each time I start to write, I find myself writing about the health challenges I’ve been facing this last week. I wrote a couple of paragraphs and in disgust erase theme. I don’t want to do another organ recital, I don’t want to whine and complain. But I envisioned this journal as a place to write down what I had done each week towards completing Darkhour Vampires. I did write an email asking for help to develop a market strategy. It helped me to realize that I am floundering and until I can develop something concrete, I won’t be able to move forward. No real help but a couple of suggestions of people to contact who have dealt with the problems of cross-genre work. I will keep you informed. And until I resolve my health issues, I giving myself permission to focus on them and not writing, rather than failing weekly to meet my writing goals.

    Sigh, Must be something in the air. Health stuff, dr appts, more and more tests for me too. It is hard to work – even though that is where I am most at peace, I can’t seem to focus and get there these last few days especially. Here’s to getting the health realigned and things back on track!

    I think that’s a wise decision, Linda. If we don’t stay healthy, we’re not going to do much writing anyway. Focus on the priority and take care of one thing at a time.
