Hello, and Happy IWSG to all.

This month I'm looking at overextending myself. Right now, I'm working full time, mothering full time, going to school 3/4 time, and still trying to write regularly, which I'm failing at spectacularly.

I've found that over the past month I've been running out of time at the end of the day. I'm also beginning to think that I might have a mild form of seasonal affective disorder. All through the month of January and most of February, I found it hard to do anything more than what was absolutely necessary to get by. The same thing happened last year. I'm starting to feel a little more energetic, but still I find myself wanting to just crawl into bed and watch Netflix every night after work. I am only about two chapters away from finishing this novel that I keep saying that I'm writing, but I just can't make myself sit down and work on it.

I'm also still debating whether I should sign up for the A to Z Challenge this year. On one hand, one of my classes is a college writing class, and I'll be working on my final paper that month. I just don't know if I have it in me. On the other hand, I know I'll feel left out if I don't participate. But on the third hand growing out of my chest, I have no idea of what I my theme would be, and I feel like if I don't have a theme I won't finish. Eh, I have 26 days to decide.

Now, on to a more positive note, I received my first Amazon review on Snowbound the other day. I was so excited to see it. The reviewer gave me 5 stars, and when I saw that a big grin just spread across my face.


  1. Whoa, you seem really busy! Do what you can and let the rest go. Congrats on the positive review! Glad to read you are smiling.

  2. Hi JA! I understand completely what it feels like to be utterly overwhelmed. It happens to me quite often now. I try keeping things in perspective, which is a lot easier said than done, I know. We can only do so much, though. Congratulations on your five-star review! I'll make it a point to pick up a copy at Amazon later today. Happy Wednesday and take care! Lily.
