It's been so crazy busy lately that I didn't have time to think of anything for this week's HNT post. So I thought I'd do a quick funny pose based on a story that I recently recorded to give away via my "Prelude to a Scream" podcast.
The story is about a frustrated writer who wants merely to get back to finishing his novel. But the world around him has other plans. At the end of his rope, he clings to the words from a self-help bestseller and goes a little over the top in trying to eliminate the distractions in his way.
You can read the entire story for free or listen to an audio version of it for free.
I can certainly relate to that.
But the story isn't based on me.
After all, unlike my main character in the story, I've never had a bestselling fantasy novel published.
But I'm certainly frustrated. I've got a whack of unfinished writing projects on the go, several story deadlines to try to hit as well as an anthology that I'm editing (and which I can't wait to release details about - hopefully in another few weeks)
But the lack of time to get anything useful done or actually complete any of these projects is really getting to me.
Can you tell?
I took the shot in front of one of the bookshelves that surrounds my writing space. My good buddy Yorick looks on (I know him well). Poor Yorick, he actually looks better than I do. I think I should be trying to get more sleep.
