Keeping Up

I’ve spent the better part of this past weekend writing and submitting a couple of short stories online.  The writing that I did has been Long over due.

I’ve been trying to post something nearly every day on WordPress.  While this has been a terrific exercise to stretch my writing muscles, this and other activities have taken me away from my novel.

I find myself trying to keep up with all the new posts in my Reader, posting something new, visiting new blogs and old friends, commenting, etc, etc.

They say that the easiest person to lie to is yourself.  Amen.  😦  I’ve been telling myself that I’ve Been writing.

Yeah.  Well, no.   Not really.

My novel, Grey Darkness, I firmly believe, is a worthwhile endeavor.  But I simply need to manage my time better.

There are plenty of you out there that work full time, like I do, but still manage to get your writing done.  I have no excuse.

So, my faithful Friends, you will be seeing less of me here.  No worries, I’m not leaving.  There are still rants and ramblings that I must share.  🙂  But I am going to do my best to devote more time to my novel.

TTFN, Penny
