Decompress? Well, I’m trying

Well, this is going to be kind of short. Why? I’ve been just plain ole’ distracted. That’s why. 

Part of it has to do with the fact that the book launch is a little over a month away. And it also has to do with the fact that yesterday, the manuscript was cleared to be turned into a book.

So, while I’m not literally bouncing off the walls at this development, my brain is revving at a really high rpm right now. It’s doing its own bouncing around. To be honest, I don’t remember being this geared up when I was getting the first novel ready and getting my shit ready for that book launch.

Maybe I’m just more excited about what I’ve written this time. Because I know I’ve done what I set out to do when I started working on this novel. Because my mentor has said my writing keeps getting better. He’s not one to lie. That would be a disservice to me and to him if he did.

I just feel confident about what I’ve written. It’s not a brag. It’s a feeling. It’s hard to explain. Regardless of how people will receive this book, I know I’m on the path that’s right for me in my journey as a writer.

I’m also feeling ambitious. I want to really start figuring out and mapping out how to go about working on my next writing endeavours after this book comes out.

But it seems my brain needs to decompress before I dive into another long-term project. I started decompressing awhile ago. Just kind of fell into it without thinking about it. I had hoped I would have been done with decompressing by now but apparently my brain isn’t done yet. Maybe after the book launch I’ll be done decompressing. But I’m thinking that’s probably a lie. 

What to do, what to do. Maybe I should actually try to decompress after the launch is done. Yeah, good luck with that.

One way or another, I’ll figure something out.
