Good stuff and bad stuff, but the spirits are high. 🙂
I’ve been working very hard to change an old completed romantic suspense into a paranormal romantic suspense. Yes, in addition to my other two projects. But, my husband asked me to pull the old ones back out-that maybe I could polish them up fast and get them out making the rounds.
So, he’s been helping out more around the house while I disappear into worlds I created–ones that are better than I remember them being. (I can be pretty hard on myself. Perfectionism is a pain. <g>) And well, it helps to keep my mind off a few personal things. The hubby’s extra time does have to do with employment issues unfortunately. He’s being a good sport about all this.
I’m trying myself. The fiction helps so much and I’ve turned over a new “being on submission” leaf. I’m no longer chained to my phone. I’m even turning off my cell phone! If the call comes, it comes. I do have exciting prospects in the works. But everything about this business takes patience. If you’re a new writer, go ahead and accept that now, please.
And you wanna know a secret? Steady workouts go a long way to improving moods. I had let myself get out of shape and I’m tackling that one 100 percent now. Oh, I feel so much better! I’ve dropped pounds and am feeling more like myself.
Determination + drive + positive attitude= success. 🙂
