……..about how this blog has been thoroughly neglected and how I can rectify that. There are so many things going on in my head lately that I should use this blog to explore those. I just end up spending my ‘spare’ time on other things, like writing, mainly. Even my frickin Art therapy diploma is all about writing at the moment! I was given some gorgeous art journals for christmas and they would be perfect for starting my creative journey and exploring ideas in a visual way, but again, I haven’t got time.
I wish I could give up work but yes, like that’s going to happen.
How do other people cope with all this frustration?
Am I really that crap at time management? Am I trying to do too much?
Here’s what I want to do, just an indulgent brainstorm and not in any particular order based on preference:
Anyone? Please? Any advice or words of wisdom as of how to begin going about achieving?
I’ve done it here, haven’t I? Given myself too many articles to read which will make me feel overwhelmed with stuff that I have to do to find more time to do everything else!
Maybe this will help:
Focus on the first thing first. When you are done, you can focus on the next one. One thing at a time.
It happens to all of us. We get distracted nonetheless, and that is fine, if it does not happen too often. Regain focus by asking yourself this simple question: “If you had a heart attack and had to work two hours per day, what would you do?” (Tim Ferris).
I don’t even remember when my last post was.
Instead of trying to retrace my steps back over the last (at least) year and try and catch up, which will be plain impossible, I will just say this:
Presently. Full time job, one evening overtime. Counselling course. Art Therapy diploma.
Monday and Tuesday I work from 8:30am til 4pm.
Wednesday I work from 8:30am 5:30pm then go to college for the Counselling from 6pm til 9pm.
Thursday 8:30am til 9pm work.
Friday normal working day.
Saturday lye in, housework, shopping. Evening: Writing for my new book The Silent Angels.
Sunday. College work, writing and chill out.
In conclusion. No time for writing a blog!
Well, I lie. I am currently involved in writing a number of blogs:
Now, about my new novel. Instead of my rattling on about it here, please visit the site:
I have also made a site to explore a few other avenues and twists around the Abandoned novelette:
and of course to continue the real life story of Casey, here she is:
I am thoroughly enjoying this. All of it. Well not so much the work, but that’s another story. One that I don’t want to waste my weekend writing about.
To be continued in the next post….entitled something along the lines of ‘what I wish I was doing now and how can I…?’
