WHAT I'M READINGLately, Boy Chris and I have been binge-watching Game of Thrones as a means to relax at the end of the day. I was curious if the Game of Thrones books were similar to the television series so I downloaded the first one. So far, I've been pleasantly surprised. It is well written and I like how they handle "old magic".
WHAT I'M WRITING
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Being realistic. This is a hard one for me. Some days I wake up and I feel like I can do All The Things. Other days I realize I am human and I require sleep and lots of snacks. I've had to turn down a couple of opportunities lately, but I'm glad I did. I really wouldn't have done them justice. And being realistic applies to my writing life as well. I need to stop stressing about what I have not yet achieved and realize that I have come a long way already. There are a lot of people out there who haven't written a book, let alone several books. (When you talk to other writers every day, it's easy to forget this.) Cranking out that many pages of words is a monumental achievement in and of itself. So I'm going to try and be more realistic. Focus on improving my craft and taking things at my own pace. I'll let you know how that goes. *grin*

All. The. Things. (I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it)
