A friend noticed that my editing bar for Amaranth in the right column over there hasn’t budged much lately. But the writing bar for Bloodless is moving every day, isn’t it?
That’s my problem. I get so into the creation of a new story (in this case, Bloodless), that I neglect my other duties as a writer. No, “neglect” isn’t quite the right word. I just don’t want to do it. I don’t want to edit a different story. I don’t want to work on marketing for the earlier stories. I want to write this NEW story.
As an independent author, this is something I need to work on. I need a better balance of my time and efforts, regardless of what I “want” to do. Discipline. It’s everyone’s problem.
If only this new story wasn’t so cool…
