Author’s Log: Typeity-tyepity-typeity… (#amwriting, #ROW80)

This will be a quick one, as I don’t have a ton to report and I’ve been working on getting Reliance 1 out asap. I start revisions NEXT WEEK. Eep! O.O

That being said, I finally finished the cover and I LOVE IT. It’s definitely my favorite cover thus far:

RELIANCE1

And now I’m more excited than ever to get the book finished. IT’S SO GOOD YOU GUYS! 😀 😀 😀

Sleep has been happening again, thankfully. It seemed as soon as I decided to slow my roll a bit and focus on only one book at a time instead of, yanno,  seven, I was able to relax enough to stay asleep throughout most of the night. So the moral of the story is: Stop stressin’ yourself out, yo.

So Imma stop stressin’ y’all. You see me stressin’ on this here blog, Readers and fellow Word Wranglers, you have my explicit permission to throw things at me.

The whole situation with my off-kilter sleep cycles has got me thinking a lot about control–what you can control, what you can’t, etc. But that’s another, longer blog post, possibly for my Insecure Writers Support Group post next month.

When I get all stressed out like that, I usually have to check myself and prompt my creative brain to remember what it’s like to write simply for the sheer, unfettered joy of it.

It seems I’ve been learning, or rather relearning, some things lately. And it’s helped a LOT. Strangely, this has all come about from rediscovering my passion for theatre.

So that’s me this week–finishing a book I’m sooper-dooper excited about and having a blast whilst so doing.

What have you guys been up to?

    Yeah… things we can control. Sometimes we can’t control stress, but we can reduce the number of things we do to cause it. Glad to hear you’re finally getting some sleep. Sounds like you’re on the path to getting some things… resolved. 😀

    Following the Vulcan in my head and the brave human who loves her. And not popping around sooner to see all the cool you’ve got going on here!

    My sleep tends to go with the moon. When it’s new and full, I’m nocturnal (and more creative). So are my kids. I’ve learned to go with it.

    Lots of fan fiction leaps of faith this month, and, like you, I’m learning a LOT -especially about flexibility.
