I know what it looks like. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, and have noticed the trickling away of my post, you are probably thinking that I have in someway lost my ‘shine’. That, or my muse has broken up with me. Neither thoughts are further from the truth.
I still love blogging, I’d like to think I still have shine, but when growth takes place we have to be maturer enough to recognize when we need to make hard choices. Are we facing a moment of ‘both and’ or ‘either or?’
Currently, I have been working on 3 different manuscripts; our beloved Ascension Graveyard which looks slightly different from how it currently appears on the blog, a piece called Warden, and another titled Nexus Gate 4037.
All 3 are very different stories and are in different stages of their process which enables me to work on all three at once. Yey!
That being said, for me, this is an ‘either or’ scenario.
EITHER I continue to blog everyday and miss this awesome moment that I have DREAMED about having since I was a girl of 13, to focus on becoming a professional novelist, OR I spend less time on other projects like the blog while nurturing others.
With that being said, the blog has been sorely neglected…I am sorry, but I aim to change that by putting forth some effort for a ‘both and.’
I will BOTH work on my three manuscripts AND blog. The catch is I will only blog 3 days out of a week.
HERE’S THE PLAN:
- Day 1: Flash Fiction/ Short story/#Blogbattle
- Day 2: Art (Should any have been created) or Random post
- Day 3: Quote of Encouragement…I like these
I aim to keep things simple. I aim to keep them true. I aim to keep progressing!
Remember the Novel Progress Planner sheet I created a while back? Well I’ve made lots of progress there, and managed to keep my goals thus far, whilst adding new ones. (The goals are slightly different from what appear on the image, here.) God has blessed me to gain great momentum and drive!
To that end, I am pressing forward with my writing goals, giving my longer bodies of work the attention they need, but I will drop by during the week and say hello as I march forward into new territory. I hope you will go along with me.
Dream. Imagine. Believe. Do. CONQUER!
