Sometimes things need to be worked at - I have no problems with that. Sometimes they take time - that is an issue for me.
The thing is, once it was pointed out to me, it was obvious. So was the solution. Accept that things are beyond my control and work harder to ensure they don't stay that way. To ensure I don't lose my steam again, I have set myself targets. The first of which is the release of my first self-published book.
I have stated in the past that I have issues with authors that work without the aid of the safety net provided by proof-readers and editors and this is still true. But with so many authors extolling the virtues of cutting out the middle man I am giving it a go. The manuscript is reaching completion and the 'to do' list is rapidly shrinking. I have regained a lot of the enthusiasm I had lost and am feeling enthused and raring to go.
The cover of the book is ordered and the first draft delivered - it is great! I can't release any more info because technically I don't own the lead story. I sold the copyright. In 8 days and counting down....
This is a big risk with money on the line. Fingers crossed...
