I don't know about you, but life never goes the way you want it to... I'd planned on 2012 being my writing year but I can't help getting sucked into the craziness of unpredictability. Last Thursday I missed my post date when my cousin had symptoms of a mild heart attack triggered from a spider bite...we spent all day in the lovely ER. I swear, it's always packed in there and I have to say that there is definitely a need for medical professionals! Hmmm, did I mention I've been moving in the midst of deadlines, health scares, and workload?
Funny how you never catch up no matter how hard you try. That's something I've had to learn to accept. BUT—there is a silver lining—I've been more productive with my writing the past three months than I've been in two years! I sent out my first book proposal of the year not long ago and I'll be sending out two more to my agent in a month or so. By the end of the year I should have a few novellas out as well...not too shabby.
How do I stay positive? I'm not real sure, but I believe that when the odds are stacked against you, there's only one thing to do..."throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it."
