I think I'm having a hard time with motivation lately. I'm not very motivated to blog. *gasp* I'm not very motivated to clean my house. And I think I figured out the culprit.
When I am in the writing mode (i.e. working on a novel), everything else takes a back seat, including, but not limited to, my children. And my husband. And maybe some friends. Oh, and don't even think about asking me to make dinner. That's what corn dogs and chicken nuggets are for. Awful, I know.
I do feel guilty...maybe for a small moment until I immerse myself in the next scene of my WIP. If only I had a clone to do my blogging, and little fairies to clean my house, and a gourmet chef to cook healthy, grease-free meals, it would be the perfect life. Right?
So, here's a question for you...When you are neck-deep in a novel, do you shirk your other responsibilities? Do you become crazy obsessed like I do? I'd love to know...
Now on to What's Up Wednesday!
What's Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop created by sisters Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk to help writers connect on this writing journey.
WHAT I'M READING
Nothing. Might have something to do with that crazy obsession of mine...
WHAT I'M WRITING
I finished the first draft of my YA dystopian novel, the first book in a three book series! Yay! The novel weighs in at 91,000 words, but I want to rewrite the ending. I'm finding that this ending is tricky because I want to give enough that the reader is satisfied, but I have to leave some questions unanswered to entice the reader to want to read the next book.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Other authors. And their successes. Last week was my week to host on Unicorn Bell, the writing and critique blog, and I had the opportunity to interview some AMAZING authors. They inspire me, AND all of YOU inspire me. So, thank you.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
The Frozen party for my five-year-old is drawing nigh and YIKES! I've been too busy writing and not preparing for this party. Time to kick it into high gear!
Also, this is the last week of school for my young'un's, so summer
Ciao for now!
