Back in August I said I wanted out of public relations by the end of the year, and that wish came true after a client put me on hiatus. Now with my involvement with Hand/Eye Magazine it looks like PR is nothing but history–or so I hope. And as an aside, check out these recent articles I wrote: Wool and the Gang, The Art of Doll, and Doll Stories.
I’ve been writing since my first day with the magazine. In fact, I spend most of my days writing, or editing, or both. And I’m loving every single moment.
But where does that leave Julius? Well, I’m behind schedule, but I think my load will be easier now that Hand/Eye has a new publishing schedule and I don’t have another project hovering over me (I was contracted to write a press kit for a brand design agency. Needless to say the last two weeks I was going a little cuckoo).
So now that I’m only working for the magazine with no other distractions that means I can get back to a normal writing schedule. What does that mean? Well, I’m hoping that I can get up early to accomplish three things:
- Try to update this blog more often with all my writing trials and tribulations
- Exercise. No, it’s not writing, but I’ve gained four pounds from eating on the go and sitting on my ass doing all this writing!
- Work on Julius.
I know I can do those three things as long as I keep to my schedule and not waste time. For Julius one factor that will help is that I organized a small critique group with fellow Internet Writing Workshop members. Tomorrow I have to submit a chapter (actually a rewrite) so I have no choice but to work on it.
But before I start with any rewrites I think it’s time to get some shut eye. It’s been a long week and I’m tired.
