(writing/to-do/health) Thoughts on the eve of a long weekend

So, I’ve been back to work on the Day Job for three half-days.  Today, I’m exhausted (although I don’t know if it’s because of the two hours at the dentist today to repair a broken tooth or just low stamina), but I have the next FIVE days off, so I’ll be able to sleep in, do some necessary refueling, and see how I feel next week.  Luckily, my doctor is happy to extend my part-time status if needed.  Finding a good doctor is so key – I’m very lucky with mine.  Seriously, if you have health issues and your doctor doesn’t talk to you or listen to you, fire them.  Otherwise, you’re just setting yourself up to fail.

 

This weekend, I’m doing some planning.  I want to redesign the website (because I’m aware it sucks.  There’s a reason I’m not a website designer, I’m a writer).  I’m going to actually PLAN it out, though, rather than just try and do it online.  I’m also doing some writing plans, which will involve calendars and metrics and all sorts of fun stuff.  I’m determined to keep my writing going, and this year is the year when I write stuff that I can then pitch to people.  I’m not kidding when I say I have nothing held back.  I’ve sold everything that I have finished.  I have nothing to pitch.  That is not a good situation to be in.  So this year is the year of writing.

 

I also need to start working on some publicity things for Last Rites.  I’m working on the page proofs this week, and then I will have some interesting news for you guys.  And some teasers!  And maybe, just maybe, some other things that you might be interested in.

 

And now, I’m going to bed.  Because I’m mean that way.
