Four bloody weeks.
For four bloody weeks I've been sick and feeling like an ass for not getting anything writing related done. You know, that little angry troll, living inside of you, guilt-tripping you so you can't even relax to try and get better, because your mind is constantly going "Oh goddess, I should be doing x/y/z".
Well, this easter week I told the troll to go fuck himself in the corner, and I had a great week.
I helped my sister with her marketing for the next 6 months for her business. I've eaten way to much good food (That just sounds silly... how can anyone get to much good food? Well my weight is screaming bloody murder, so I guess you can) I've relaxed, visited family, watched a lot of Swedish and British crime mysteries, and got a beautiful new desk. Which can be seen on Facebook.
The bottom line is that I actually feel alive again.
But, it's not that I spent four weeks doing nothing. I have spent a lot of time thinking about what it is I want with my writing in the future, and I have come to a few conclusions.
Number one being that I want to actually make it in this very hard world of writing.
But to do that I need to get my act together so to speak. So, no more little side projects that could be fun to write just because. No more "I'll do it tomorrow". No more "Ohhh this movie looks fun, I'll watch it instead of doing what I should be doing".
So, as Easter represent new beginnings and hope, I will use this Easter as the stepping stone to begin a new chapter of my writing life.
And a Happy Zombie Jesus Day to all of you :)
A writer's life
This is the blog where a slightly crazy author writes rambling posts about everything and nothing. There are posts about cooking, books, and movies. There's funny stuff, videos, and music. And sometimes there's even snippets, updates on books and other interesting reader stuff. Because if nothing else, this writer's life is never boring.
