Monday, Monday. Another day another dollar. But not for me. I was asked not to come in today. That means I’m off the whole week. That’s kind of fun, until I get the paycheck.
In any event, I’ve come to realize two things. First, I should probably try to monetize this blog. Or, alternatively, make some money with my writing. That would probably mean picking up some freelancing and I don’t see that happening. I don’t seem to have the will to hustle these days. Which is probably why I’m finding it so hard to work on my WIP.
Second, I need to come up with an editorial calendar for this blog. That sounds a little crazy. I mean, it’s just a blog. But, I find myself rambling on within a post as well as being all over the place with topics. Lack of focus, lack of a niche, and so on. Admittedly, I should probably sit down and edit the posts but to me, that seems to defeat the purpose. A blog, in my opinion, is a casual sort of thing.
That said, with the sudden day off, I’m going to try to get back to the WIP. I haven’t worked on it in, mmm, a few months? Maybe? I’m not sure. It’s fine. I needed some time off to work on other things in my brain, untangle some plot stuff and character stuff. The usual.
It’s found time! So, today, I guess, I’m not “partly writing.” I’m “writing.” Though, I probably shouldn’t put that in quotes. It doesn’t seem as committed. As long as I don’t touch the remote, it’s all good.
