The Drawing Board

This post is about restarting back on the goal. 
My goal. 

Your goal. 

I basically want to restart what I'm here to do. 


It's easy to become bogged down with gunk and grime, like an engine that needs a good cleaning. 
                            I have a few projects that need to get done, and every time I sit down to get to it, time is eaten away by distractions. 

I enjoy the YouTube show, and this blog, and have gotten better at producing them, but I have to buckle down and focus on the writing. 

Social media takes up a lot of time and energy. And while it's a necessary evil, it's also one that can really become an energy consumer. 

Checking notifications and retweeting until the cows come home. 

This year--in terms of submissions and acceptances--has been extremely slow. I'm working on a couple things, but not as much as I wish I was doing. 

I also want to get one of my novels finished before the winter, so I can start looking for an agent. 

On top of the day job, these things can become near to impossible. But there is a way. 

There's always a way. 

Get back to the drawing board. 

In my year-plus, I've learned a lot of things. 

Some bad, most good. All of it I will make use of as I move along. 

In the end, it will be where the success is. 

Always time to rethink things.
