One of the challenges I am currently facing has nothing to do with too much work. In fact, it is the complete opposite.
I have been going full-out with revisions and editing for the past several months, not to mention putting work out on Wattpad. Now that I have met a revision deadline, I’m suddenly without anything pressing.
That may not sound like a bad thing, and in fact, it isn’t, but I’m feeling a little lost. I have plenty of things to work on, but nothing immediate. That is the problem. Rather than jumping into one of my other projects, I’m taking a break.
Again, not a bad thing.
Except, I’m letting myself relax too much. For me, the pressure to perform is what keeps me going at a manic pace. So, how do I fix that?
Well, I suppose I could get rolling on Boyscouts of the Apocalypse. Before you ask what I have left to do on that particular project, let me tell you. First of all, the podcast is long over. I had a trusted Beta reader go through it with a fine-toothed comb. I have also put it up on Wattpad for comment.
And a comment I did get. One that seems to answer my doubt about the story. So, now I know what I need to do to take it to the next level. That means I need to get the sense of urgency back because I would like to release it in August.
Wait…did I just say, “August?” As in four months from now?
I think I just found my urgency.
