Editing was my friend this week. So were multiple appointments. The two do not go together well yet somehow it all worked out? (I don't know how, but my anxiety has been off the charts so that's probably a large part of the time management problem / short focus solution. Gotta see the advantages, right?)
As another positive, editing my space Sci-Fi novella was the main part of this week's writerly tasks and I love this story even more as the first draft's rough edges get chiseled off and smoothed out. This is a neat story and the character voices shine. I have to admit, though, I'm looking forward to September when I'll be done focusing on these shorter pieces and can jump back into the deep end with my big Steam Punk series. I put querying and writing for the big one on hold to give myself time for creating new short story content. The big one is pushing on my brain again, though, so it'll be nice to fall back into that world.
Yes, I'm counting positives. It deals blows to the depression, and those return hits count after life hits hard. I'm looking forward to the end of the current situation causing the anxiety and depression because whatever it turns out to be, at least it'll be an end. Ends are the best places to start beginnings :)
Hope you have a great weekend!
Why are Authors crazy? I can't answer that, but I can provide bits of my own thoughts so that you can piece together why I may be.
