It's been a bit difficult for me to wrap my brain around my new schedule... And no, being at home all day doesn't mean I don't have a schedule. While it does mean I can wear sweatpants to work, it definitely doesn't excuse me from daily responsibilities.
Juggling those responsibilities, I'm learning, is harder than I thought it was going to be. Take this blog, for example. It's not a "responsbility" per se, but it's definitely something I like to keep up on. See how well I'm doing with that? Yeah.
But I think things will be better now. I spent the better part of three hours last night putting together the world's most complicated desk. From now on, I buy pre-assembled furniture, just saying. Anyway, it's assembled and it's sturdy. So this morning, I built my new little shelves, opened that hot-piece-of-printer I bought back in August, and I officially have a new workstation. Just for me.
I'm hiding in it right now. And as soon as I unpack my camera cord and I can post a picture, I will.
So now it's back to deadlines and projects, with a side of book editing. If I don't get that book completed by December, I'm going to be really mad at myself, people.
Mark my words: Done by December. Then I'll edit that second book while I submit the first one to agents (again). Because if I don't, then why did I just spend this money on a new "office"? Exactly.
Here's hoping that a little normalcy and consistency will bring me great creative energy.
