So...hi everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve officially posted on my blog. Been busy working on stuff and allowing inspiration to take its course. I have a batch of new blog posts coming this summer season as some of you may have seen if you follow me on the social media. I decided to write a post filling everyone in on what’s currently happening in my world and what’s on the agenda.
In my world there’s never a dull moment. It’s always an adventure even if I don’t want it to be.
I’ve spent the last 3 years working nonstop that it was a must to make 2018 my low-key year. I needed a break. A refresher if you say. Opportunity surrounds me daily but I mentally wasn’t taking any bait because I couldn’t even pay attention to give my best effort. I was worn out.
If I’m not working on a project I’m working on myself. I’m a workaholic as I stated in the past. I constantly need to be working on something and I became bored from it. I broke the cycle by simply forcing myself to take a step back. Truth be told I hit the one thing every writer at one point in their career dreads...writers block. I didn’t even know I had writers block until I began to write this. Go figure.
Dealing with writers block while agent searching can really be a blow to self-esteem because finding an agent is a long process that can take years and years with a ton of rejection, doubts and questions, usually I would be distracted by working but the block prevented such work to occur.
I would get inspired and begin to write a blog post or a chapter then I would stop after a paragraph. Nothing was flowing. Core ideas were coming and I wrote them down. It’s different with my psychology column because I have to do research and summarize the angle I’ve approached. For my creative work I like to keep all my readers entertained and for me to fully feel I’ve done so I try to come out with something different but nothing was making me feel fabulous work wise.
My time was spent wisely. I had some r and r with my man. When it comes to relaxing my boyfriend is a pro. I spent time with my family who I hadn’t seen much of due to my mind being so laser focused on work which when I finally spent time with everyone I really missed them and made more time for them. I did a few photo shoots and I worked on my selfie game as you can tell if you follow me outside of the blog—if not I have a post coming up called ‘Selfie Vibes’. I’ve also decided to switch my layout on Instagram because I became bored of the one I was working with. I was productive in a different sense I’d say.
I caught up on some of my favorite shows: Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s, some of the Real Housewives shows, Scandal, Mama June and I’m currently re-watching Desperate Housewives. I’ve played a few video games: Sims & Friday The 13th—to be honest I have the sims on my computer screen right now as I write this. Ha-Ha! I read and listened to a few audio books. I revamped my look by getting a new blonde vibe which I feel so confident and happy with. Lost a few more pounds as well. I’m trying to branch out style wise and spice up my wardrobe. I love to shop so it’s exciting!
I started to work on a new song but I’m taking my time. In production we don’t even have a beat yet. I have like a lyric line recorded. I also began writing two outlines for two new novel ideas aside from the others I’ve been working on. It’s all a process and in order for it to be the best it can I have to let inspiration take control. I’m really thinking about truly getting into doing a full-blown YouTube channel aka vlogging but that’s another big task to take on. I have some videos out on my Facebook go check them out if you haven’t yet. Even my podcast channel was brought up to me but it’s all about timing and if I’m mentally/creatively ready to take on such tasks. I guess what I’m saying is it’s all happening but at the pace it needs to.
I think that’s basically it for now. So excited to share all I have coming up with you guys. It’s been one hell of a ride that even though it’s filled with a ton drama the rewards are so worth it. I’m extremely proud of myself and what I’ve been able to accomplish in the last 3 years. Thank you guys for your love, support, following my journey and of course your kindness. Stay Cute, xo
