That means “Seize the Day”, and it’s what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks, which is why the blog posts have been few and far between.
I took on a freelance job with a new client, and it has been keeping me a lot busier than I’d anticipated. However, the work is also much more interesting and gratifying than I thought it would be. I’ve been writing every single day–thousands of words, typically–and I’ve wondered more than once why it is I can’t seem to put forth this kind of effort on polishing up my own novel.
The thing is, I’m enjoying this work, and ultimately, that’s what counts. Yes, I want to get the novel finished so that I can sub it, but I’ve decided to enjoy the present and not stress myself out over the future; to embrace the new path that my writing life has taken. I’m going to seize the day and let the rest unfold in the time frame that it’s meant to.
