Bigger Fish

I didn't post anything yet this week; not terribly concerned about that. Maintaining an on-line presence isn't nearly as important to me at this time as is daily writing. I am very fond of old sayings and I am currently utilizing the one about "having bigger fish to fry." I don't set out to balance and prioritize things in my life but the sayings and slogans do it for me when I let them.

I just try to do the best I can with everything and when I hit a wall, I back off, and look around; without fail an old slogan, saying,  or sometimes words from a story, poem, movie or song come in to let me see that I can either turn back, go around or go over, and maybe - rarely, any more, but still - knock it down or bust through.

One More Thing

Now that I am over the reluctant part, as well as the "starving artist" anti-creative living conditions part, I am still having some difficulty keeping to my one week minimum blog posting commitment.

Now, it's because I am quite busy, and busy with a lot of writing. I missed a couple of end-of-month deadlines, but it's quite all right because I am rolling right ahead with the projects, using them for mid-month deadlines (at least the ones that weren't themed). Writing is never wasted.

So, as if I didn't have enough to do, I decided to enter the NaNoWriMo event (I think event is a better fit than contest). I am way below the daily scheduled word count but not concerned in the least. I am using the opportunity to write a sequel to "Special" called "Special Times." I like the way it's progressing.

For anyone uninformed November is National Novel Writing Month and in this contest / event you write a novel of 50,000 and over words. As I stated above I think it's a great way for me to get a real good start on my sequel, so it was worth the added strain.

No longer reluctant but struggling to "get 'er done."
