I know, I know, I’ve been really REALLY bad at keeping up lately.
It’s not actually that I’m bad at keeping up – it’s more that between a very sick small child (she’s nine, but she turns into about a three year old when she’s sick – she has emotional and behavioral problems), first draft of my dissertation, end of year taxes, and a copy writing company that’s only ever quiet when I’ve got time to deal with it, and super busy when we really don’t have the time to do anything, by the time I get to bed at night and actually think about blogging on my iPad/phone then my brain has a bit of a meltdown and I get nada done.
And, if I’m being entirely honest, I’m really not feeling happy about much myself right now.
Ok, happy isn’t quite the right word. Secure probably gets a bit closer, but it’s still not quite right.
I’m a great writer, and do really well with fixing hacks and coding, but every so often I go through these periods of questioning whether I want to work as a writer, or a coder, or even work at all.
I guess some of it is because of my dissertation, which is stopping me from focusing on my writing – ironic really, given my degree is creative writing, but mostly, I feel like I’m staring down the barrel of something nasty.
So I haven’t forgotten the challenge, I just need to get about three weeks of dissertation and a list of projects out of the way. 🙂 Have fun without me?
