I'm terrible with follow-through. I'm convinced it's undiagnosed ADHD. If I'd actually go and get tested maybe I'd have an answer. (There goes that undiagnosed ADHD again!)
I have to admit I've been lax on writing lately. Keeping the house up, running to this or that appointment, work, family ... they keep a writer away from her writing. Then there's the laziness (undiagnosed ADHD?) and depression.
Vitamin D helps, but not enough. Self-flagellation (I'm excellent at self-loathing, FYI) isn't helping either.
My dying PC could be a factor. (A tiny bit, anyways.)
So I bit the bullet and splurged on a new MacBook Air. It's slim and slender but it's got what I need to get cracking: A keyboard for typing. Some software and applications for preserving writing, and tinkering with covers and other ideas. I can also format my stuff in Vellum again! It all feels so shiny and new.
So that's what I'm doing now. Revamping the covers a bit as I work on book six (I've got several thousand words and some directions I can meander into). I've also got some other projects in mind, some resulting from my periodic bizarre dreams, or random brain farts/musings about threads I'd like to stitch into stories. There is also another semi children's book that I call my own version of Alice in Wonderland (as a very loose elevator pitch) that I intend to get back to. At least I feel like with the new laptop that I've recovered some of my brain. Now, I must tell my easily distracted gray matter to get going on writing and outlining and all that good stuff. My seven or eight fans depend on it!
(Did I mention I'm great at poking fun at myself? Or maybe I'm just being super realistic?)
Oh, and happy Thanksgiving, if you celebrate the day.
I'm Magenta Wilde, author of the Poppy Blue paranormal fantasy series, and the forthcoming Happily Hereafter series. Hint: It involves ghosts.
