The odd time I post about having a to-do list to ensure tasks and goals are met in a timely manner. A good idea . . . often a necessary one.
Today, I haven’t got a to-do list. No ta-da moments. Just a rambling post. Rambling because I’m having a “duh-uh” week.
Is it the heat/humidity? The anxiety of never-ending mom-care? The stress of the day (into night) job? The desire to be walking along an oceanside beach, with no troubles or worries? . . . The ultimate boredom of having the same routine day-in, day-out, not for months, but years?
It’s okay to have an off week or month. Sometimes it’s just not there and there’s nothing we can do to make it happen. So, we have to—pardon the clichés—go with the flow and roll with the punches.
And pray to the powers that be that all will [soon] fall into place.
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
