For the past two weeks, I’ve felt like I have absolutely no spare time at all in my life. There is so much that I want to get done, and there really aren’t anywhere near enough hours in the day to get it all done. And I’m not just talking about writing-related things, either.
I’ve tried to really make working out a priority in my life right now. Getting up early and going before work, going on my days off. It’s hard, and I’d much rather be doing other things, but I know it’s worth it. It just seems like it sucks up so much of my time! I’ve barely had any time to read for the past couple of weeks, which is beyond unusual for me. Normally, I read something every day, even if it’s only a couple of pages. Lately, there have been days where I haven’t read anything at all (or at least nothing strictly for enjoyment).
I’ve been reading the story I’m critting in a novel swap, and I’ve really enjoyed it. I actually got pretty sucked into it last night and read about thirty pages or so. Now I’m twenty pages from the end, and looking forward to the rest of it.
Other than that, I haven’t been getting much accomplished. I’m re-reading Tempest of Angels right now, trying to figure out how to make it stronger. Haven’t had any revelations in that department yet, but I’m hoping.
The HTTS lesson did not go terribly well. I gave my Muse what I wanted, and a deadline, and my Muse proceeded to pretty much ignore me. Until the deadline passed. Then I got one idea with a bit of detail, and today, two more ideas with little-to-no detail. Sigh. Please, Muse, can you help me out here?
