Actually, I think I’m past the venting.
I’ve been overwhelmed lately. Between a day job that’s insanely busy and juggling In This Life and all its marketing — plus getting ready to final edit the 2nd book, write the 3rd book — I’ve been losing my mind. I can’t remember things the way I used to. I don’t feel as sharp. And, I’m not getting enough sleep.
I’ve decided to step back and let go.
For me, this is a difficult thing to do. Just ask my best friend. Oddly, though, I feel a little more relieved today than I have been the past few weeks. I’ve decided to enjoy my book release, enjoy the excitement building among my family and friends and (hopefully!) readers and fans (do I have any yet? LOL) and just be.
Will I feel this way tomorrow? Or the next day or the day after that? I don’t know, but I hope so. For me, I’ve reached a major milestone, and one that’s been sixteen years (OMG!) in the making. If anything, after all that time, I think I deserve some rest.
That is all. I needed to get that off my mind so I could make a little more room for something else to move in.
Sheesh. A writer’s life isn’t an easy one. Still, I would trade it in for a thing.
PS – Holy crap! I just checked my countdown! TEN days to go until release day!!! Here we go again…the brain’s a-buzzing again.
