I have a confession to make.
Not only do I have my pants rolled up to showcase my awesome "lucky" socks, I haven't written anything besides these blog posts in almost a month. I have stalled.
|Proof I am wearing green. No pinching!|
Oops. *averts eyes and twirls hair*
Over the past few weeks, I've become an expert in procrastination and laziness. Oh, there were always excuses - some of them valid.
"I'm siiiiick... I can't write when my brain is in a fog..."
"I've got so much to do! And I have to figure out a new writing schedule..."
"I'm waiting for input from my beta readers..."
"Daylight Saving Time is kicking my butt..."
"My kid has a concussion and I have to be hyper-vigilant while monitoring him..."
Okay, so that last one was valid. And totally crazy. I mean, how many times have my kids hit their heads doing stupid things? And for him to merely trip and hit his head on the gym floor? Seriously? At least it was mild and he's back at school today. Do you know how hard it is to keep a 6yo still when he feels perfectly fine and can "finally think now"? Geez...
This week, while keeping my kid home per doctor's orders, I became extremely restless and fell into a funk I just couldn't shake. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. Yesterday, after a VERY long day of stalking social media and getting absolutely nothing done, it dawned on me.
I wasn't writing.
No wonder I was cranky.
So I sat down and sorted out my priorities, made up a new schedule that should work beautifully, and forced myself to put down my phone and get off Facebook, gosh darn it!
I've also made a decision.
While I love these Capsule Cooking posts, they have no place on an author's blog. Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving them up. Quite the opposite, in fact. I put together a brand spanking new blog to feature them and one day, I'll put them together into a shiny new cookbook.
I'll most likely post my Capsules just once a month for now, keeping to the same schedule I've been doing. And I'll post links to them from this blog. But they'll no longer take up an entire post here. This blog will feature all things Dream Chasing, Dragon Slaying, and writerly. Even my how-to's are getting the boot.
Except writing-related ones. Those I'll keep.
Now, without further ado: Pudding Cake on my brand spanking new Capsule Cooking blog!
Because I obviously don't have enough blogs.
Happy dream chasing and dragon slaying!
