Busy busy busy

So this is one of those things where I try to summarize all the stuff that’s been going on in my life these past several months.

Let’s see: I moved to Tennessee, started a new day job, got a driver’s license and a car and a dog.

Okay, that didn’t take as long as I thought. Generally things are going well, although the daily #amwriting posts have slowed, thanks mainly in part to the daily writing slowing as well. I’m not super proud of it but there’s been a lot of that obnoxious rebuilding and adjusting and figuring my new life out. I’m slowly getting back on track, doing more editing and refining the stuff that’s already been written instead of just throwing myself into more and more new projects. I’ve got a handful of projects percolating as well, so there hasn’t been a lot of new stuff that I can put up on a board and go “Yes, this is a thing that I’ve accomplished.” That’s kind of a double-edged sword, wanting to have some kind of tangible proof that I’ve accomplished something but at the same time knowing that it’s all just little steps on a longer journey.

I’m trying to be a lot more strategic and specific in what I’m trying to accomplish and making better choice about the future. Most importantly I’m in a better place now where I can actually save money and make bigger and better plans for myself. It’s a little rough, being that impatient and a little capricious, but it’s good to know I finally have a solid foundation to build from.

So here we go, restarting again, making better choices and working harder.

So stay tuned for more…
