Or, flotsam and jetsam... whatever...
Anyhoodles, I decided I might as well write something while I was up. You see, I've been working 7 days a week, 12 - 22 hours a day for a LONG time now and finally had to give it up. So, about 9 days ago, I officially took a break from doing cover art so that I could reclaim some night and weekend time, and spend more time with my daughter who was briefly hospitalized two weeks ago. (She's just fine now, by the way - but it really made me examine my priorities.)
Having a tiny break in my schedule also gave me some time to start thinking about writing again, which I haven't done in at least 6 months. Since my purpose in not doing cover art now is to keep from killing myself with a crazy schedule and neglecting my family, it would be foolish to push myself into a writing frenzy. However, after doing the math, I realized I could probably finish about 50K words in three months even if I only wrote 15 minutes a day. That's a decent size for an e-book, and stealing 15 minutes out of my day wouldn't hurt anything, would it? So, that's my new goal.
Just 15 minutes a day. Let's see what happens.
Any new goals in your life? Or read any great books lately?
