First off, I hope everyone has an amazing holiday season. We’re near the end of the year and about to start another all new. I’ll be 25 next month too.
Not long ago, I was thinking about what I had managed to accomplish this year. We moved out of the old house, my job shifted to two different stores, I finished my classes so I can get my Bachelor’s Degree, and I got a 3DS.
But I still haven’t finished my damn book.
I surround myself with images and notices and reminders that I need to work on it, and I keep stumbling into procrastination. I dick around on Tumblr and whatever other sites I have, I play video games until I lose track of time, all that and some change. It’s not doing me any good, and I need to get it under control.
So I’ve issued myself a challenge: get the book done by the end of this year.
To accomplish this, I’m taking a leave of absence on every site I frequent: here, FA, dA, Twitter, everywhere. I won’t be on Skype or Steam too often either. I’ve been failing myself and I’m fucking tired of it. I’m still struggling to get my independence, and if I can just start here, maybe I can get out of here.
That’s my hope and dream anyway. I guess it sounds sorta far-fetched, but hey, if garbage like 50 Shade of Gray can get widespread success and a movie, what’s stopping my marginally better writing from getting some kind of success?
Anyway. It’s been a great ride, and I appreciate all of the kind words and gestures from everyone. It means a whole lot to me. If you drop me a message in my inbox, I’ll reply as soon as I get the opportunity, but for now I really need to strap in and focus.
I’ll see you all in 2016 when I’m looking for a publisher.
