I’m going to do it again! I’m going to take a trip to somewhere I’ve only ever had a layover in and meet new people who share my passion in television and writing. There will be inspiring and amazing people there and I will get to listen to their stories and wisdom. I’m going to the ATX Television Festival in Austin! I volunteered and not everyone gets to do that, and I got approved! I will still be purchasing a badge so I can do panels and fun stuff between the volunteer time, and I will immerse myself in the whole experience of it all.
That same month, June, my kids will be getting out of school, my son with start immersion therapy for ASD and we go on a family vacation to Florida to visit my step sons and go to Disney World. It will be extremely busy but we all will have earned it. My husband has been putting in a lot of insane hours at work, and it is only going to get worse from here on. If I finish my book before the end of May, like planned, I will be really surprised. Finding time to myself to write has become difficult. Nap times are it but some days I have to use that time to do chores or do self care, which is just as important.
Speaking of, my baby is awake now from her morning nap. I got 45 minutes of writing time this go around, I think she’s not feeling well, but I hope to get in a solid two hours later today during the big nap. I’m having a hard time writing this book. The groove of it isn’t there yet. I know I will find it and I’m not NOT writing on it, but I feel compelled to work on other things. To help this, I work on the book a few pages and then work on a script. Which I don’t usually do. I have always just worked on one project so as not to get confused, but it’s not working. I feel my momentum is burned out if I stick to just one thing and I’m not feeling it right now. I would probably walk away. At least this way I’m getting something done. Editing my feature script is a good side project as it would have been the next thing on my list to do anyways.
Well, I have to go get my beautiful baby now. You all have a fantastic Thursday!!!
