Before I start on today’s post, I just want to ask that you check out yesterday’s announcement. I’d love it if you took part!
Okay, so for those of you who don’t know, the Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a monthly bloghop where we writerly types come together and share our insecurities and encouragements as needed. The awesome thing about doing this is that, if nothing else, we realize we’re not alone in our troubles. Better yet is when we get some tips or advice that actually make things better. Anyone’s welcome to join. Just click here.
So… I’m glad to say I’m still insecurity free on the main, although there’s this growing niggle. It sounds like this:
What? June Already?!
See I want to release three books at the end of the year. Two in October and one sometime before the end of December. And as lovely as this sounds in my brain, I can’t believe that so much of the year has whizzed by.
And I’m starting to worry that the rest of the year will fly by as fast, leaving me with my projects unfinished yet again. (I’m not even going to go into the fact that most of my goals have been forced to the wayside thanks to my former publishing house.)
Point is, the only writing goals that stand a chance of getting done are getting those three projects ready and published.
I made the call of cutting myself some slack on editing, I know, since I’d been spinning my wheels for months. The thing is, there’s only so much slack left before I miss my deadlines.
Ugh. Anyway that’s the niggle that’s growing into more and more of a worry as I write about it.
So now I’m just going to stop.
Anyone else feeling keenly aware of the year slipping away from us?
