Hey, so … sorry about being absent for the past couple of weeks. I didn’t disappear, and I didn’t stop thinking about writing; I’ve just been up to my eyeballs in work (the bill-paying kind).
I’d been gaining ground in the social media world (I think), earning Twitter followers and promoting 22 Scars, but suddenly it might have seemed like I dropped off the face of the earth. The reason is that I got myself sucked into a project for work that took every waking moment of my life (and there wasn’t much sleep therein), and I literally couldn’t think of doing anything else.
It’s a form of mania, when I break it down. I don’t usually suffer from the outright mania of typical bipolar, where I feel on top of the world and engage in risky behavior, but I do have periods of hypomania, where I end up focusing in on a single thing, blinded to all else, and can’t break free until that thing is complete.
It just turned out that this thing, the work project, took two weeks of non-stop work to complete.
I felt fine throughout—I wasn’t tired, never felt like I couldn’t complete the work; I just knew I had to keep pushing and pushing until I got it all done.
Now that it is done, I feel like I can return to my regular life outside of work where I work on writing, blogging and promoting my book.
So with that, go check out 22 Scars—it’s only $0.99 on Amazon and iBooks now!
