Adding a Bit of Awesome

I’ve picked up a new hobby … and I’m gonna call it a hobby because it’s totally NOT a profession … I’ll elaborate in a moment.

I’ve taken to the wonderful world of Web Design thanks to my utterly awesome (but not nearly as awesome as me of course) husband. He’s been hinting for some time that he thinks I’d be great at it. (Well that was obvious ! I’m great at everything!) And so I finally caved and said, “Show me, but if I don’t like it, I’m so not doing it!” The problem occurred when without warning … I liked it! CRAP! There goes another crap load of time out of my day.

That’s not to say I’m going to let it get in the way of my writing. Because to elaborate on my first sentence, writing IS my profession. First and foremost I am a writer. I take all the push and the pull, all of the joy and the anguish and I write. So the key is to find a happy medium and learn to get the most out of both.

The thing about writing is, sometimes you just can’t … most people like to call this “writers block”, I prefer to refer to it as “Temporary mental incapacitation of the creative mind” … ok FINE… saying “writers block” is easier! And well web design you can only do when you have a website to design. SOOOoooooo I’m hoping (wishfully I am sure) that my “Temporary mental incapacitation of the creative mind” will only occur during the times where I have websites to design and vice versa!

See! I have the perfect solution for everything … and yeah … perfect might not be the right word, but it’s a solution nonetheless!

So hopefully my website will be undergoing a small transition soon with a link to my web portfolio.

In the mean time … I have made a small break in my novel and have gotten some edits done. I have one large obstacle to overcome and a possible plot addition to consider and hopefully I can get the rest kicked out.

ALSO!!! Help me celebrate…today is one year since the day I started my book!!!!

(Ok,not so sure I should be celebrating that it’s taken me over a year to finish this, but hey … it’s a mile stone!)
