Here’s where I get all whiny so you can skip this if you want to. But I felt that I had to post SOMETHING after all this radio silence.
Still more snow, still more snow days (with more on the way—what the what??) and my patience and work schedule has been worn down to a thin veneer. And then my computer dies— like holy crap for reals dead. I’ve lost a ton of work and a lot of art and I’m kicking myself because this whole winter I’ve just felt lost in time. So up to now, I’ve only been playing catch up.
I’m still not caught up but it’s time to just gird my loins, or light this candle, or truck this penguin (or whatever) and move ahead with my life.
So what’s next? That’s where my trouble starts.
Ever seen a dog whose people tease it by throwing several sticks for it at once? That whining sound as they stay put, trying to figure out what to do first and whether they’ve already lost this game? That’s me right now. Too many sticks, too many first steps, and an overwhelming fear of choosing the wrong one.
I’ll figure it out eventually. Whether it’s more editing, more writing, more art, more project ideas, more promo-ing, more posts on this blog, I don’t know. I’m just going to have to start and get a-moving. And I’m not going to worry about the stuff I should have done, or everything else I should be doing.
Yeah, right. Wouldn’t that be nice? *sigh*
