So, I did it again

I bit off more than I could chew and it bit me back. I had a new song lined up for Madness Day. I had a couple of flashes lined up for Madness Day (one was a resurrection from aught seven that I never finished). And I even had a lit piece ready for Madness Day.

Well, obviously I haven't submitted anything new in a while, here.

What can I say? I let myself get burned out, right after I let myself get excited about these new projects.

And it's not like this is the first time, either.

I really need to get better at time management, starting earlier, pacing myself, setting more realistic goals. Because when I don't - you get this.

A news post about what I HAVEN'T done.

I'm keeping this one up for a while - a reminder to me that every time I see it, it's because I let myself down.

I think I might just finish these projects, even if I submit them in the new year, at least they'll be done and I can move on. And I don't want to jinx anything or make any promises so I'm going to stop here.

Not with the self-loathing. That's going to last a while. Just the news post.

If you have a minute, check out the one thing I DID manage to get out (in time to be submitted in a nonexistent contest)

Madness [A Short Story]

There, I'm done being a pity-whore.

So, I did it again

As an artist, there's no harder boss to work for than yourself.
On the plus side, the work will be exactly the way you want it to be. Pace yourself whilst in the windowless room; just remember, you're better than the equipment you work on.... just a little slower :)

A lot slower, by my own measure, apparently. But thanks, this is still a learning moment - I'm going to take all I can from it and be better in the end.
