The good news is my mental state is more chill. I am not going to say my nerves have entirely settled, because it feels like one wrong step/something going horribly wrong and I’ll be back where I was last week. However, I’m at this point where I am no longer freaking out constantly and letting my thoughts wander doesn’t end with me in a panic. If I can keep this up, I’ll be securely okay in not too long.
The bad news is, I did practically nothing for the past week. Well, not nothing nothing. As I stated last check-in, my husband’s birthday was this past week and he took time off. I did my best to enjoy the time we had alone together and as a family.
Now, I did do a bit of writing stuff. I finished entering one of my ideas into my idea book. I have another to finish and a new one to add in too. Then, I sent out materials for my cover reveal (that’s on July 31st, so there’s still time to join in). And I finished the rough draft of a guest post for next month.
I’ve also been trying to figure out how I can get my missing two hours of writing time back. I did try figuring out where it went, but I realized that wasn’t what matter. Getting back some, if not all, of that time is the more important step. And I do have a plan! I think a combination of moving my run time and not letting my son dally (because his time use affects mine) will regain me some missing time.
So this week, I’ll be trying to recover my writing time. What time I get will be spent on the second draft of PLANET. Also, I’ll be doing my cover reveal. I’m not putting more than that on my plate.
Do you have a museum you love to visit?
Ever been intimidated by a second draft?
