I received the proof copies of Dissonance the Friday before my birthday, and man do they look wonderful! It is amazing the motivation and overwhelming pride you can get just by seeing your own work in print. I started to read through it to see if I found any errors, but quickly discovered that I was suggesting to make nit picky changes that didn’t really need to happen. Instead, I am currently sitting back while my hubby reads through the book. I am shooting for an end of the month release.
While the hubby reads, I should be working on the next book, but I find myself floundering. I know where the story is going and even have an outline to work off of, but I am just having issues dedicating the time and finding the motivation to write. School, work, and life have been taking up a ridiculous amount of my time lately. Though, I suspect the majority of my problems are time management oriented and not lack of time, though I do have less free time than I used to. So, I have decided to steal a page from Z.R. Southcombe’s and write my weekly goals on the blog in an attempt to keep myself accountable. This will also make me update the blog at least weekly! 🙂
Write two chapters in Reverie
Write one additional blog post
Write two discussion posts and two or three follow up responses
Write at lease a five page research paper on transformational leadership effects on performance
Workout at home or the gym three days this week
Squeeze in a little me time
