How’s it going? My week’s going by really fast–or at least it seems that way:
Turning in some emails for the first phase of one project (which is why I didn’t post yesterday, like I planned)
Making preparations for a second project (reading some stuff about the project background and what-have-ya)
Making sure a third project goes smoothly forward (not a lot to do here, but still needed to keep folks informed about what other people are doing)
And I didn’t make a lot of time (or have time by the end of the day, most days) to write some of my own fiction, or add to or revise any already-written pieces. That’s bad for a number of reasons (which should be a subject for another post).
Most of life is about balance. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” and all that. (I’ve often wondered what all play and no work would turn Jack into. Maybe I’ll ask my Facebook friends, just to see what they tell me).
And writing is no exception to the balance rule:
Balance with writing and marketing (without writing there’s nothing TO market; and no marketing means nobody knows what you’re up to, and they can’t buy what they don’t know about)
Balance in freelancing (working other people’s projects with zero time for your own, or working on your own stuff exclusively–and I know writers who don’t write for anyone else, or who do half and half)
How about you? How has your week been? Do you have your writing set up to write only for others, only for yourself, or a mix? Drop me a line in the comments with your thoughts.
Triple F is tomorrow (one of my favorite times to let loose, fictionally speaking). Be sure to swing by.
Until next time,
