Staying motivated is tough for me. I'm sure for a lot of other people too. I'm an immediate results kind of girl. And, when time slows down and nothing is happening, I get frustrated. And bored. And then I stop caring. You know the rest.
But, nothing changes until you change it. As hard as it is, I have to keep going. Not just with writing, but everything. There are so many things out there that I want to do, and just because it isn't happening right now, doesn't mean it won't happen at all.
What keeps you going? How do you get past a bad case of the fuck-its?*

Now that I am back to reality, it is back to the business at hand. A few contracts are signed and more stories are flying through the internet's series of tubes, on their way to various editors. I am more excited than ever about all that is happening for me. But, it has created one little issue. I have to write more stuff! High class problem, to be sure.
Even though a lot of positive stuff happened while I was away, I didn't write nearly as much as I would have liked while in Australia. Too much other stuff to do. Shocking, I know. I'm home now, missing Oz like crazy and wishing I was back there. Maybe I will be someday (for a lot longer than a couple weeks) but for now I'm stuck here in sweltering PA. Despite the heat, I've been very productive. Stories seem to keep bubbling up to the surface, faster than I can get the ideas down on the old laptop.
So, hopefully the good news will keep rolling in. How is everyone else doing? Drop me a line and let me know.
