October? Seriously?

It's been about two months since my last post. That has been on purpose, but at the same time (and I know it's cliche) I can't believe time has gone by so fast. How can it be October already?! I've been feeling very overwhelmed between work and school. I'm in classes three nights a week this semester and two of the nights are out in Schamburg, which takes about an hour and a half travel each way. I didn't really understand exactly how much time that would eat up. And then work drama has been work drama. I've mentioned very briefly about issues in the past. I don't want to go into too much detail about the situation, but the old CEO ended up getting fired (which is a good thing). The new guy is great. But, still it's a new boss and there's all this drama. Make a great novel if my genre wasn't fantasy :) Maybe in a few years it might be worth a trip to something more chick-lit-ish.

Classes are going okay. Midterms start next week, which is great. I will finally be done in December. Only took me a decade. But, hey, I'll be done and I'll be able to focus on the book. I still want my MBA, but I've decided that I am going to finish up my draft, and revise until agent-ready before I start to study for my GMAT (which is the standardized test for MBA). If I don't then I think that I will never finish the book!

I have been so stressed and because of that I dropped writing. But now I've realized that writing was my stress release. My mind doesn't go round and round about school or work. It goes round and round about Hailey and Altis and the steam-punk-esque world that I've created.

So, I'm back. And while I might not be very active, I'm not going away. :)

Glad to know you are doing well. I too have cut back on blogging a bit these past two months.

Oh, don't give up the writing, whatever you do! That's the best release of all, isn't it?

Yay for sticking around! I'm excited to see you again. Good luck with your full plate. You've got a lot piled on there! You need writing as your backup. :)

Glad to see you back! I've been a bit sparse in blogging too - lots to do.

I found the same thing a couple of times. I'd stop to focus on something important, then find that I couldn't focus because I wasn't getting rid of stress by writing.

Oh yay! So glad to hear midterms are done and you're doing well, Lauren! I'm glad you're on Facebook, or I would've had withdrawals. :-)

I can't believe it's October AT ALL!
