Goodbye Stress… Hello Smile!

Ever have one of those days where everything seems to be against you? Yeah, well that was me yesterday… Well, maybe that isn’t completely correct. I mean my day was okay. It was just really long and extremely busy. Then, after a long day of work I couldn’t just go home to my loving caring family like I wanted to do. No I had to go to a staff meeting, and seeing as I’m the boss… I couldn’t really miss it.

The staff meeting started with a two-hour┬átraining, which felt like two years after the busy day I had. Then to follow-up the training we actually had to do the meeting portion. That took another hour. We didn’t get out until 9:00pm last night!!! That never happens… By that time my staff was antsy and didn’t seem to happy either, and FYI with the not so subtle attitude I was receiving from some of them throughout the meeting… I wasn’t all that happy either!!!

Today is going to be different! I have over the past couple of months been able to put aside my stress at work, and let the attitudes slide… today will be the same!

Goodbye Stress… Hello Smile!

Finding the time…

It seems as time goes by my days get shorter and shorter, and I am having less and less time to write. It makes me sad to think I have spent less than an hour writing over the last two weeks! How am I supposed to get through this project if an hour or two a month is all I have to devote to it?!

It’s no ones fault but my own! No pointing fingers here, it just is what it is. I have a family and at the end of a long work day it’s hard to want to do anything but spend time with them. How do you tell your kids, “No sweetie mommy still has to work, I can’t cuddle or draw right now.” I can’t do it. They give me those puppy dog eyes and I just melt!

So, now I have fallen behind, WAY BEHIND on my self-set goal of having book three in the Blood Angel series complete by the end of August. I’m only on Chapter Eleven… with so much story left to tell.

Please send me out good creative thoughts to help me get through the rest by my newly set goal of November 26th MY BIRTHDAY!!! Because what better birthday gift could I give myself than finishing the book?!

Stay tuned for more updates in this on going adventure…
