After a bit of a rocky start, this week has turned out to be a good week for writing. I’ve finally managed to design a cover for the anthology, as well as finalising the page-setting and getting around to compiling the print-ready files. Everything has now been uploaded to Lulu and I’ve ordered enough copies to give away to the relevant people in my life.
After my post on Friday I have a confession to make. My motivation has waned and my routine has suffered as a result. To be fair it’s not entirely my fault, what with being quite under-the-weather on Saturday, a social engagement on Sunday and a medical appointment all the way down in London yesterday all colluding to keep me away from my keyboard. So, it’s been a quiet few days for writing. That said, it’s not been a complete loss.
So following my comments regarding my lack of self-discipline and my need to Do Something About It, I finally got off my ass and did just that. I made a plan, I formulated a technique and I stuck to it. In the last two weeks I’ve managed to train myself into following a simple routine and as a result I’ve actually achieved stuff.
I’m a bad writer. I have all these dreams of ‘making it’ as a successful author and turning what is essentially a hobby into a career but when it comes to the crunch I never seem to get anything done. It’s a problem I’ve been aware of for some time now and I finally realised I need to Do Something About It. But what?
Welcome to the all new snaomiscott.net, a website dedicated to the writing and life of British sci-fi and fantasy author, S. Naomi Scott. Over the years the plan is to populate this site with any rants, thoughts, observations or general comments I feel are worth sharing. It will also act as a journal of my attempts to turn my writing into a career and who knows, if I’m successful then maybe other writers-to-be may even find something useful here themselves.
