Hey! Quick update. I got a promotion at work so my schedule for posting content here is probably going to get a little hectic until I can readjust. On one hand, I’m like yayayay! More money! But on the other hand, I don’t want it to put a damper on my personal interests like writing, playing the vidja games, and hanging with my buds. Accepting the job really opened my eyes to how lazy I really am, as bad as that sounds. Like of course I want to do all those things, but I also really like sleeping.
I think this is a really good opportunity for me to reevaluate what’s important and prioritize a little better. As you might have guessed, I honestly don’t put much priority in writing these days. The long string of rejections kinda bummed me out, and I know I need to take a long look at what’s working and what’s not in the big picture. I came down hard after that high of “Oh my god, I did it” and it’s still a sore. But I did find a couple CPs that have given me a ton of helpful feedback. And now I need to make time for edits, while also working on the next project, while also making time for another five or six things.
I’m going to look at this opportunity as blessing obviously but also as a challenge. I’ve never been the best at time management outside of work. Which is mostly why I was so proud of myself when I finished Wayfinder. I’ve been used to having a lot of free time too. But all that’s about to change. Wish me luck!
Annnnnd here’s a new jaaaaam!
