Writing about… panic mode

As Christmas draws near, I’ve looked at what I’ve written in the last few weeks, and I have to say, it’s not much. I recently had a knee replacement surgery, and I’ve been barely mobile so one would think I have had lots of time to write. I have, but I haven’t been writing. To tell the truth, I’ve been playing a lot of games and spending way too much time on Facebook. But now that I’m finished the heavy-duty drugs, it’s time to get back into writing. The truth of today’s writing world is that more than every, a writer needs to keep writing, and not drop off the face of the earth, or rather, not drop off the face of Amazon dot com.

Which brings me to look at what I’ve done recently. I’ve submitted applications to teach at a couple of local writer’s conferences. That means I’ve written some proposals and teaching notes, but I haven’t written any actual writing.  I’ve also caught up on a lot of email. Which also isn’t real writing. I’d like to count grocery lists, which have been necessary because I haven’t been able to shop yet, so my husband has been doing the shopping. He does a great job, but he needs a list, despite the fact that he buys way more stuff than I usually do.

I’ve been working on keeping my blog current, which is more work than I thought it would be, but it’s fun to read all my guests’ contributions.

But I really should be writing. I have a six book series I’m working on, well, allegedly working. I need to catch up and get moving on that. My plan is to give the first one away for free and then put the rest of the series on Amazon.

Okay,… onward…. after Christmas…
