So we are a few months into 2014 and this year has proven to be fairly eventful so far, what with going to see McBusted for free, the budget turning up for the hush hush project I am working on, book sales doubling month of month…it’s all slightly unreal as far as I can see, but unreal in a good way I guess.

It’s hard to explain why its all going so well except for lots of prayer and the grace of God being in there. Along side that I am working, I wouldn’t say hard, but I am applying myself without stress to it all more than I have before and finally finding some balance between being sick with fibromyalgia and diverticulitis and getting on with everything I have and want to do. I even managed to go horse riding the other day for the first time in years. Was amazing to get back to doing something terrible active that I adore. The only problem with it is it has got me looking at buying horses again which I can’t afford to do right now, but if the continued doubling goes on then I quite possibly will be able to.

I had a thought this morning that I wanted to finish my latest book in time for my Dad’s birthday which is on Sunday. not much pressure at all to get that done! Besides it’s not like I have 38 hours of work that mostly needs to be done by tomorrow to get on with either… It’s not stressful, I just know there is a lot to do and a lot of people who are waiting to do publicity for me as soon as the promo videos for Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren get filmed and edited.

My best friend from high school once remarked “There’s just not enough hours in the day for you are there?” and eight years later he said exactly the same thing. Others say I am doing too much and I will burn out, but realistically there is a lot more I could do if I didn’t choose to spend so much time doing things I love like gaming or helping out the people I care about. If I solidly worked as much as people seem to think I do, I would have finished a lot more books by now than I have done!
