Sometimes the universe throws you a curve ball. In the past couple of months it has managed to pitch me quite a few and I’ve gotten very behind in several areas of my life including my writing schedule.
Every year at this time I take a look at my yearly goals and decide if I’m realistically going to meet them. I’m a very goal-oriented person and at one point in my life I would have done anything to meet a goal including miss meals and sleep. I don’t do that anymore because by the time I met the goal, I’d barely be able to string two words together and have them make any sort of sense.
Revision is a familiar term for most writers and I find myself in a position of having to revise a few goals at the mid-point of my year. I’m back to having a specific word count each day and will finish the full length paranormal but in all probability will only finish one of the novellas instead of three. What can I say, I’m not a speed demon but I’m persistent.
What about you? How do you handle your career when life throws you a curve ball? I’m talking that wicked, outside ball that you’re going to have to stretch to hit and you know there’s a chance you aren’t going to make it.
Until next month,
