Healing and other Dilemas
I have been having a hard time doing real posts lately. By real, I mean something that isn't a tag or etc.
Things have been good, I've been good. I was worried for awhile that I wouldn't be able to say that without lying. I can say it now. I'm scared to jinx it, or that to admit it means I'm not allowed to have bad days anymore.
I'm still overwhelmed and drowning in half done projects, deadlines, and various other things.
I have been working hard at finishing at least some of the things.
Most pressing are the two contests I am entering.
The Roogle Wood Press one has hit a bit of a snag with me. I have established the world, the characters, and stakes. I have figured out my ending and the twist with the apple. I have gotten some mixed feedback, and now I'm not sure how to write it, I guess. While its cool to see different peoples reactions to different characters, I'm at a loss of what to correct. I will sort it out... eventually.
The other contest has a 5,000 word limit which is so few words. I'm not sure if I will be able to make anything cohesive. I'm going to try.
My friend and I decided we are going to sell our art at a trade show. I have never done something like it before, and I am super nervous. It's making me step up my productivity and art game. So it's already helping I guess.
I am drowning in unread books, beta reads, and books to review.
I like being busy though so it's a good thing I guess. I am also working towards my license again, hopefully it will work out this time.
That's what I'm running on these days hope, it's most likely misplaced. I feel like being optimistic lately.
I'm wearing a smile, and it's genuine. It's small things like that, that let me know I'm healing.
Everything is still a mess, but I'm feeling good.
