This challenge prompt could NOT have come at a better time!
Currently in my drafts I have 4 music reviews that I to finish, 2 more unsigned artists that I’ve found on social media that I’d like to start a review for, a 700 word English paper that is due on Friday, and I am officially 3 weeks behind in my math class.
Also, there’s this other project that I am suppose to be working on called (aka my first ever BOOK). This month is when I am due to check in with my agent about it and I haven’t so much as Facebook’d her to do so.
So, if you haven’t figured out by now which tweet stood out to me by now, then here it is:
This is my on going problem. With the exception of Math (I just don’t see myself ever factoring an expression to compose and find myself loathing the subject), all my problems are surrounding by one key element – writing.
It was fine when I used my writing as a breather from studying or practicing music. Though now that I’ve gotten serious about it…it seems to take more out of me. Inspiration isn’t coming to me and it has caused me to lose my focus – my drive and passion for it.
My music reviews are on hold because I lack confidence in writing them. I don’t want to go into ‘musician speak’ with them, and because they are on artists that I like I find it hard to not sound too much like a fan and to find objective ground. As for the 2 unsigned artists I need to make the time to listen to more of their work first.
Truth telling time – the English paper is for a technical writing English class that I honestly give zero percent f*cks about. It’s also an opinion piece and I cannot go online for resources for it so I will type it up the night before it’s due and email it to my professor.
Math is another class that I could honestly care less about, but I need to do well in it if I have a hope of passing. I just don’t understand WHY do I have to take this math at all?! There are politicians in congress right now who do not know the friggin’ anatomy of the female body or how the reproductive system works, but I have to take a math class on expression and applications that I will never, never, NEVER use?! It just makes my ass itch…Ugh!
Okay, now that my rant is done, the number one item on this list that is bothering me the most is my book.
It is my first one and I want I it to be as good as I can make it. I also want to self publish it. And between finding a team to help me do that and making sure I have funding for it, I haven’t been able to curve time to really work on my book like I should.
Having said that, I have decided to go back to basic – really start using my monthly editorial calendar to hammer out what I need to continuously work on and get back to be consistent.
Believe me when I say that I am completely open to any all suggestions that ya’ll may have for me. I appreciate it advance, and as always, thanks for reading and stay inspired!
