What a summer it’s panning out to be. I’m going to tell you all a secret, I’ve been in a real slump. I sit in front of my computer and spend a lot of time TRYING to write. When you have to try there is little chance it’s going to be your best work. I think I’ve spent more time, editing old work, than creating new work!
It’s a painful way to spend gorgeous summer days. I had to really take stock of choices I made and decide what’s important. And I realize how happy writing makes me, how happy I was when I worked less, lived somewhere more simple and could afford to work at my craft, rather than work at working at my craft!
So, I’ve spent my summer very frustrated. And it all boils down to what makes a quality life? I’ve decided that for me there has been a shift in proprieties and in my idea of success. Success used to be getting that office with a door, the bigger and better title on a business card.
Now, success is spending as much time with my son, as he grows faster than a weed. Today, success is living a simpler life so I can focus on my dream. So, I’ve decided to reboot and move my life to a small town, where I can write more, work a day job less and be home when my son gets off the school bus! SUCCESS
Watch out world, the next novel is gonna be a doozy! 🙂
