Okay I have a bit of a confession to make. Yesterday when I said my weekend was “rough”, I was in a big bad hurry, and I didn’t really think through what “rough” actually meant to people who didn’t know what I really meant.
In reality, what’s been going on is this, and in reality, it’s freaking awesome.
I’m in the process of starting a company importing shoes into my country, and I’m the only person in my country who’s allowed to import those shoes. This little detail kicked in last Monday, and as a result, I’ve been putting in 18 hour work days Monday to Friday.
Which means that last week, I only wrote Saturday and Sunday. And then, although I worked all day and busted my butt doing it, I was still behind on my goal. Hence the “rough. 18 hour work days in the week plus 18 hour writing sessions over the weekend.
Well. I’ve realized that this is just nuts. So I wrote this post about it at Untethered Realms, and thought I’d let you all know what’s going on.
Basically, the 18 hour work days aren’t permanent, but they’re prevalent at the moment. However I’m hoping to normalize to my usual work schedule by the end of this month. Basically, I’m just pulling double time to get business plans and our business model nailed down. Once that’s done, I’m solid.
But until then, I won’t really be blogging. I will post the guest posts I’ve scheduled, and if I have an arrangement with you for critting (I’m looking at you, Alex and any of my other existing CPs who have books that need to be critiqued), I have time for that.
Blogging… not so much.
I WILL be back at the end of the month, though. If only to say hi.
But the thing is that I realized that as awesome as blogging is (and I truly do love it), this business I’m starting up will open SUCH wonderful doors that I can’t gripe about blogging/writing time. Because in the long run, it will provide me with blogging/writing time AND money.
Thanks all for understanding! X
