Finding THAT Spot by Brenda Whiteside
After finishing the last book in my Love and Murder Series, I'm looking to reorganize and regenerate. I knew I needed a new focus halfway through this book, which sent me into a tailspin to get it completed. Patience is not my middle name. I wanted the summer off of creating to figure out where I'm going next.
The summer off doesn't mean away from author tasks. In fact, I've been even busier these last few days combing through all of those articles and email tidbits saved for consideration later. Now is later. I'm studying promotion ideas and techniques and industry news. Yesterday, my head was swimming.
Balance is needed. The challenge is to find time off to regenerate (take a little trip, read something purely for entertainment everyday, visit with friends) and slug through my tasks. I'm not good at parceling out the work, mixing the time in for pleasure.
My goal is to figure out what spot I've reached this time around, and my hope is that after studying and relaxing for a couple of months, the light will shine on where I'm headed.
Meanwhile, new voices are whispering in my head. Maybe I can't really get away from the creative part of this business.
