Last week, I started back at work after almost a two month layoff.
As I laid out in a previous blog entry, my schedule change was something that was causing me to cringe, deep down inside. It was the big, black unknown I was about to jump into. Am I a writer or am I just a hobbiest?
So far, everything seems to be going well. I have managed to clock in time on the book every day. I am optimistic, but I am also being very cautious and very deliberate. Part of the reason why is that my schedule hasn't revved up yet. I have about a week more where I will have time in the afternoon to work before the demands really start.
I think that it is going to be a matter of thoughtfully building time in each day where I can work. As long as I can build a predictable schedule, I think that I will be fine.
Plan on seeing a check in on this particular writer anxiety in the coming weeks.
