I swear I write one of these like every six months and I’m sad to say that this another writing update that doesn’t have a great news. I haven’t written a single word of my novel since my failed attempt at NaNoWriMo. I think the main reason being is that I am a huge planner and this novel is not planned AT ALL. I think before I begin writing it I’m going to have to take the time to plan.
Problem being I don’t have the time right now. Probably won’t do until August, when all my assignments are over and done with. I haven’t given up on writing and getting a decent novel written and most importantly rewritten, but it is definitely going to be put on the back burner for now. I’m going to focus more on my career in marketing and hope for the best with that. I need money to pay my bills and the rent, and I just don’t have the capital to base my entire life on writing at the moment.
It’s time for me to be realistic, and pragmatic in my approach, we can’t all be J K Rowlings and as much as I love writing and dream of earning a living from writing, I love marketing just as much. So it’s not necessarily a bad thing, just a change in direction.
Keep yourself tuned for another writing update, hopefully, one with better news than this, and who knows, I may have even written the next best thing!
Have you ever changed your life priorities? Let me know, plus I wanna hear if you think I’m making a mistake!
