As I replied to a recent comment on my blog, it was with complete shock that I saw the date of my last post! How did I let so much time pass without updating my blog.
Dear Blog: Can you ever forgive me?
Perhaps this is a good lesson in discipline. As freelance writers, we don’t have someone (a boss) breathing down our necks when we’re creating a new novel or writing a new play. We are completely and totally responsible for getting our butts in our chairs and our fingers on the keyboard if we hope to ever create a completed manuscript.
Although I pride myself on my time management skills when running my performing arts business, I have let down my blog readers by not using those same skills to keep my blog updated.
September, in particular, is one of the busiest months for my business. Registering students for new classes, setting up schedules, doing the massive amounts of paperwork and writing new drama playscripts for fall semester classes all demand a huge chunk of my time. Couple that with working on the final edits of my ebook (more about that soon) and suddenly, an entire month has slipped by and it’s October.
On a happy note, however, I have been writing:
- three playscripts for drama classes
- editing my second suspense novel and subbing to my critique group
- guest blogging for Warwick Life Strategies http://www.warwicklifestrategies.com/the-greatest-rewards
- editing a full-length musical that will be performed in the spring
So dear Blog, please forgive me for deserting you. I promise to make you a priority once again.
Blog on, everyone.
