Business: April’s Outlook

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already April! The year is going by so quickly!

I’ve been recovering from surgery for the last two weeks, but am nearly back to my usual self (finally) and ready to take on new projects as well as finish old ones. I’m doing Script Frenzy (http://scriptfrenzy.org) this month, writing a musical about guinea pigs. It’s a fun project, and I’m very optimistic that I will reach the 100 pages by the end of the month!

When you’re in a slump…

This month has been very busy, but life is slowing down a little now – finally!

It’s April, which means it’s Script Frenzy. It took me a week to decide that, rather than write the second graphic novel in a trilogy I began last April, I would write a movie based on a dream I had several months ago. I wrote two pages that day. This past Saturday, I finally got back to work on the script and wrote another eight pages. I haven’t written anymore of it since. Somehow I don’t think I’m going to meet the goal of 100 pages by April 30. That’s just a guess, mind you.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading this month, taking some time to re-examine my life goals and figure out just what it is I truly want out of life. What do I want to do with myself, where do I want to find myself in ten years? More importantly, what is the purpose for which I was created? I’ve been thinking about going back to school this fall (I want to get into grad school someday and become a psychologist). Oh, and I’ve been dealing with wedding planning, working part-time as an office temp, and continuing to edit reports for the company I’m contracted to.

So I haven’t been working on my writing very much lately, but I’ve been gathering material and ideas that will inform my writing when I at last sit down at the keyboard and start working on a novel or a short story or an essay. Some writers would say I’ve been in a slump for the last while; I prefer to look at it in this more positive light. It’s not that I don’t want to write, it’s that I’m getting distracted from writing. Other things feel more important right now: relationships, making money to help pay for the wedding and for school, reaching for the future. It’s probably going to be like this for another month or so, and then I’ll be into frantic wedding preparation mode for a month and honeymoon mode for the month after that. But come August, life will be settling down. I’ll be preparing to start school, but I won’t be doing full-time studies, so I am fantasizing that my life will return to one of blissful writing this summer.

Until then, everything is sporadic and my life is one of interruption and distraction.

(Well, it’s always full of distraction; I have ADHD, after all.)
