Taking Back My Work Day
My trouble is, that somewhere in the midst of all these favors, I have lost my work weeks. I stopped keeping all of my sites updated, then had a week and a half where I was more busy with things around the house and personal stuff I had to tend to and working on sewing when I did have free time that I looked up one day and it had been a couple of weeks since I had actually got any of my own work done.
That was bad, worse was that I sighed and decided I would get to it after the weekend. Then after that weekend I was hit by some other things... and that cycle of putting off til tomorrow and being overloaded with other things boiled up to where I have not got any significant work done for what is now a few months.
That is NOT acceptable and I can not figure out how it went that long without me realizing I had put things off for so long in some cases. If I worked for someone else I would have been fired a couple months ago, and been too busy to see the pink slip until now. By all rights I should just fire myself right now, but, I won't. I am going to give myself one last chance to stop doing other people's work before mine and to stop putting off work that needs done until the last minute.
The time has come to reclaim my work days and get back to the serious "I'm a writer" level of day in and day out work at the computer to rebuild my work, my reputation and most importantly my income.
