More Eggs Than One

Okay National Novel Writing Month is over and that is the excuse that I used to not write on my blog.  But National Novel Writing month has been over since the first day of December so really there is no excuse.  Okay so I’m getting that “what have I done with my life” bug.  You know, the disease you come down with every time you feel like you life is not going the way you had hoped it would go.  They say that’s something you’re supposed get when you hit you mid-life crisis but since no one really knows when they are destined to die that could literally be at any time.  The real question is what am I going to do about this bug that I’ve got.  So here’s what I thought.  I have been taking the whole one project at a time approach to my writing but obviously that has not gotten me anywhere thus far so I am going to flip it around.  Now I am not opposed to working on multiple projects at one time because I figure if my work on one project gets stale or I hit a block then I can have another project to switch to.  Some might call this procrastinating a bit and I thought that was what it would be doing but now I’m looking at it much differently.  I could have several projects finishing up around the same time as opposed to just one.  Sort of like the saying don’t put all your eggs in one basket.  So my book proposal for the first novel that I have actually finished is going to be one of these mini projects for the New Year.  I wanted to self publish but the fact of the matter is that I just don’t have the money so I am going to move on to the next step and try to get my an agent.  Well I guess I better get working.  I have more than just this blog to write…Until next time….Be Blessed!!!
