Accountability Post #16 ~ To Reach that Goal ~ #amwriting #selfpublishing

You see, me saying I was speeding up and positively gloating on nearly managing to reach the 5K words total in a week was asking for trouble, wasn’t it?

You know how it is, one minute riding the crest of a wave buoyed by your success…

The next wiped out by the very same wave and finding yourself face-planted in the sand…

face plantedI have been unwell and it has been all I can do to manage my day job tasks, which must take precedence, without having the addition of my writing on top. I won’t go into what’s wrong with me but I know what it is and that it is likely to last for a while (I also know it isn’t serious).

Anyway, I’ve had to reassess my capacity for work and sadly that means putting my writing onto the back-burner, unless I find I’m having a good day. The pressure I was putting myself under was becoming overwhelming so this decision, whilst hard, makes sense. Hopefully I will be back up to full speed again very soon. 😀

Because of my state of mind I haven’t been particularly focused on any writing things and even if I have done anything I can’t now remember what it was so bear with me and I shall get my trusty pad out for the week to come and write things down.

I hope you have all had a much better week than me and for what they are worth I shall leave you with the numbers… xx

Project B – Hill of Beans –  previously 5532 words – still 5532 words.

Project C – Parallel Lies sequel – previously 25,004 words – now 25,500 words.

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.

    Take care of yourself – and here’s hoping less writing now works out at more in the long run. xx

    • Georgia Rose says:

      Thanks, Linda. I have little choice but to do that for the moment and yes I’m sure it will all work out in the end, it just might all take a bit longer, that’s all.

    I am only too familiar with this state of affairs, but at least you are thinking positively about it. We can only do what we can, and when we can, remembering that when we do have to take a step (or two) backward, it’s not a punishable offense!

    • Georgia Rose says:

      I know you understand where I’m coming from and we have to remember not to be so hard on ourselves, however difficult that might be when we want to achieve something! Thanks, Jaye.

    Hope you feel better soon – take care of yourself xx

    You’re doing really well, G and as far as the writing is concerned – it’s a marathon not a sprint. Have a rest and before you know it you’ll be storming ahead with that word count once again xx

  6. Sorry to hear you haven’t been too well, Georgia. Take care of yourself. I hope you’re soon feeling a lot better. x
