Arrrggg. I’m doing the eighth edit of Jumpstart and I’m still finding things wrong with it 😦 It just reminds me that I’m still working on the stories that I thought I’d have completed by now. I’ve got three almost ready, but I’m getting spent with them. I just want to move to other things. But the fact that they are uncompleted sit in my brain taking up space and energy. I’ve got some sci-fi stories I want to move onto.
This all has to do with the fact that I have this 10 books by age 30 goal thing. I’m turning 28 in a month and I wanted to get at least one story out months ago 😦 I’m just annoyed that I underestimate my time and talent management.
I think the only thing I’ll have done by my birthday is a short story I wrote the other month. I think it is almost done. I need to make up a cover image and do maybe 2/3 more drafts.

First of all, thirty is nothing. Placing that kind of goal on yourself, meant to stress you out isn’t necessary. When you’re 40 or 50 or more and look back you’ll have a good laugh about it. The only goal necessary is to do the best you can on any given day. Since every day has other factors that change don’t be so hard on yourself.
Thanks, but by giving myself this type of goal gives me a sense of direction and eustress to push myself. Becuase a big part of my personality is being lazy 😛
