The best intentions

I always have the best intentions, thinking that I will be better and update more regularly. Then I went back to work on Monday after two weeks off – and all my good intentions went out the window. I’m enjoying my new job, but it is so mentally draining, that most days I come home and just crash. Which means I don’t really get anything done during the weeks, blogging or otherwise.

Every day after work, I think to myself that today, today I will try to stay awake so I can actually do something. But after a little while I just can’t keep my eyes open.

Me, after work.

Me, after work.

I just need to manage another six more weeks before my next school holiday.  (Yes, I’m keeping count!) That one is “only” a week, and after that it’s another six weeks before the end of the summer term. My contract ends at that point, and I have had no indication of if they will offer me an extension or anything. Fingers crossed that they will, but if not, I’ll just have to go back to job hunting.

Still trying to slowly edit and proofread my first book, but I’m worried that it’s not good enough in general. That maybe the story is too boring. That the writing is awful. Anything that can be wrong, basically. It’s difficult to be the judge when you’re the person who wrote it, and by extension love all the characters and know the story in detail.

Other than that, no news really. All I do is sleep and work, it seems!

  1. I know the feeling. All of the ones you just described, actually.

    If you want, I’m happy to read and offer feedback. I can be gentle or awful or somewhere in between, but I’ll always be honest!

    • The more beta readers, the better I say! (That makes it sound like I have loads, I don’t *lol*)

      Do you like the genre though? It’s historical romance, set in the regency period. If you’re up for it, I’ll happily send you chapters through as I edit them (or if you prefer, the whole thing unedited haha). Whatever works for you, really 🙂
