So, what could I mean about here, there be words...
Well, as some of you are aware, I've had to do some serious readjusting of my writing and life goals. For some time now, I was hoping, praying, wishing, and dreaming that my writing goals and life goals would align like the planets so that I could accomplish my life goal of establishing financial security through my writing taking an uptick in sales.
This hasn't happned.
In fact, it may be possible that the opposite is happening. I don't know. And although I DO care, I have priorities to address and have accepted that a far more vigorous exercise in non-futility would have to take place, hence, why there are characters and words and stories and new ideas crashing about in my head... with no place to land at this time since I'm in need of a real second job, temporary, thankfully, with a real minimum wage pay to supplement my current income. This has meant a bit of sleep deprivation and writing deprivation but...
Here, there be words.
This is not a pause by desire. It is a pause out of necessity. Getting ahead of the curve ball is so much better than having it cold-cock you on the side of the head blind-side syle. The characters have acknowledged my brief need to change things up and have stayed. I think Chaos the pearl dragon might actually be crocheting a scarf for me in the corner. His dragon rider is busy working through his talent.
The task at hand is not as I planned, but being an author is etched into my DNA. So, here there be words, and when the chance comes... there will be more stories.
Hare are things in your neck of the woods?
