Is this what begin an author is all about?
First, big thank you to the host for July 2nd IWSG, Krista McLaughlin, Kim Van Sickler, Heather Gardner, and Hart Johnson!
Shout out to our leader, Mr. Cavanaugh and the rest of the IWSG crew!
Let me tell you about my day:
- I wrote 1,000 words in Book #2 of a series.
- I edited three chapters in Book #1 of a series.
- I researched some promotional opportunity for debut novel.
- I sent out some questions for future blog posts.
- I wrote this blog post.
- I networked with some writers.
- I promoted another writers upcoming blog tour.
- I checked in with my NA Street Team and discussed other promotional opportunities.
- I think I slept, ate and cheered Team USA, too. (So sorry they didn’t win!)
Is this what being an author feels like? How do you keep all the balls in the air without going nuts. (Hehe! I just got that.)
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Sounds like a productive day doing things you love. I could get into that kind of life schedule. Keep up the momentum.
Tossing It Out
That’s the key. I do love it and so fortunate to be doing what I love 75% of my life. Still have that pesky day job to deal with.
You did all that in one day? You get a sincere round of applause! I consider it a victory if I can tear myself away from watching Supernatural long enough to write a chapter.
You aren’t just being an author, you’re being a successful adult. Congrats. I hope to be one of those some day 🙂
I guess I’m doing what I need to do. Thks, Christina.
Wow, Sydney! I feel like a slacker. LOL Don’t you feel great for accomplishing so much!
I do, but it never ends.
It sounds like you had a productive day. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. I’ll try and keep it going.
That’s a great list of accomplishments! I’d say it’s what a writer feels like.
I’m feelin it.
isn’t going nuts part of being a creative writer? 😉 congratulations and happy fourth to you too!
It must be. I’m much more productive when I’m crazy busy. Give me all the time in the world and I’m a lazy bum.
That looks a really impressive day to me – 1000 words a day is the target I set for myself a while back, I’d personally be happy just with achieving that.
I’m impressed that you’ve managed so many other things as well, so congratulations on everything!
Except the cheering – you obviously didn’t cheer hard enough, or the US would have won. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.
I know. So disappointed. I had World Cup fever.
Sounds like a productive day! I really need to kick myself in the butt and be as productive as that!
It is a lot , but I still needed to do more.
You’ve had a busy, busy day. Yep, that’s being an author. Such fun.
Yep, that’s pretty standard, I think, but I always feel grateful that I can do this for a living. Keep on writing!
Sounds like you’re having a ball–if you know what I mean. hehehe

Wow, you were busy! It’s such a great feeling when we tackle many projects in one day. Being productive is a great thing.
You were VERY productive! This is awesome, motivates me to go harder!
Not every day is like this, but I’m trying.
That’s all you can do.
Sounds like a productive day. Also, are you saying I’m not supposed to be driving myself bonkers? Hmmm, I may have to rethink my life choices. 😉
Pat yourself on the back because if there’s ever a productive day, it looks like that you described here. You’ve done a lot more in a day than I’ve done in some entire weeks….particularly the writing parts. Managing to keep all the balls in the air is something that I’m still trying to figure out how to do. When you find the solution, let me know so I can stop dropping mine. Ha!
In the meantime, I’ve been going nuts where writing is concerned.
I feel like I’m already nuts… and I haven’t released anything… yet… 🙂
Congrats on your productivity! You’ve done well!
It’s really admirable – and INSPIRING!
