I apologize in advance.
(As an aside, I've learned a lot from Cristina about social media in the short time I've known her. She is someone who really gets social media in general and marketing and promotion and I highly recommend following both her blog and her Twitter feed so you can reading all the articles and tips she posts. Her information stream has been very helpful to me. Plus, she's a really kind person. Who doesn't need kindness in their life?)
What are your working on?
I think this question should read, what would you like to be working on...
I'm always working on something, but it doesn't always look like the traditional sit and type pose.
I have a monthly writing commitment at Integrated Catholic Life and I am also always thinking about potential blog posts, other article ideas, and book ideas. I jot those thoughts down in a folder on my phone.
You'd laugh if you saw the list.
It's a bunch of random words with enough information so I don't forget the point about which I'd like to expand.
I have half a book written and a few more ideas I'd love to pursue. Randy Hain, my editor at ICL, has been encouraging me to get serious and put my writerly game face on. I very much desire to "Do the work" as Steven Pressfield so aptly suggests, but I also know that this particular moment is not the right time.
That time will come.
Until then, I write when I can and at odd times and in unusual places and I'm always very grateful for the super nice laptop my dad gave me as a gift a few years ago. It's enabled me to keep writing.
I'm also a quality over quantity type of girl. I'd rather produce one thoughtful blog post/article than a bunch of daily vapid navel gazing (though that still happens here sometimes).
