RB: Why isn’t there 34 hours in a day?

I knew this would happen. I took a break from writing and now I’m wondering how to fit it back into my schedule. During the two week hiatus, I’d planned to delve into the social media craziness . . . It  didn’t happen. So not only do I have writing to get back to, which I’m actually excited to do (yeah!), I also have social media stuff, too. Ah!!!

When I briefly thought about taking one more week off from writing and really begin marketing my upcoming book, Callie jumped up and down, waving her arms. “Don’t forget about me! I want my happily ever after. You kinda left me in a shitty spot on that last page.” I bit my lip, not wanting to tell her that her ever after wasn’t all that happy. Lucas was behind Callie, an indulgent smile playing around his lips at her teenage antics. Although he’s three hundred years old, it’s possible he sees me as a child, too. He waves in greeting and tells me not to worry about his story. “I’ll be here when you’re ready.” He’s probably using his gift to sense the general panic and anxiety flowing through me at all that I have left to accomplish. Hurry. Hurry. Hurry. Get it all done. Get it done,  NOW!

I don’t know why I decided it was a good time to begin writing two novels at once while getting my first book published, starting a blog, website, faceboook, twitter, google+, linked. I get a little boost of confidence when Ella comments, “I don’t know how you do it all.” But really, who am I kidding? I’m a mental mess. Time to put up the superwoman cape and admit defeat or at least a compromise on my list of to-dos. (I don’t like to lose.)

One good bonus, my blog articles are flowing smoother since I took my break. I guess my Muse is tired of twiddling his thumbs since he doesn’t have Callie or Lucas to torture at the moment. 😉

So, in the end, I’ve decided to take Lucas up on his offer and concentrate solely on Callie’s story for the moment. Also I will buckle up and actually get some marketing done. No, RB, you cannot watch that last episode of Game of Thrones tonight, you have to figure out Facebook and learn how to send tweets. 😦 Dammit.

  1. Social Media is beyond me. I have google+ and twitter, but I only use the latter and briefly too. I don’t have a Facebook page set up. I have a website, but I rarely remember to update it. I feel it’s overwhelming juggling all these things, so I definitely know where you’re coming from! I can only suggest that you focus on one or two social media that you know you can update often, rather than leave about a bunch of inactive sites. Good luck! 🙂

    • Thanks, Zen. That’s a great idea. I don’t have any of those set up yet and I still feel anxious about getting it all done. :/ -RB
