Musings

Do you ever feel…

Category: Musings Written by R Kane / July 24, 2015

weird when you have downtime?  I’m not talking about a weekend or anything like that, no, I’m talking about when you finish a project that’s taken up five months of your life to finish.  ‘The Man in the Black Hat-Amazon‘ is done and now I’m in the middle of promoting and marketing the work, but that job is not something that involves your full attention for a long time.  You really don’t have to dedicate much of your attention at all.  I use several sites to get the word out, I put out a Press Release on another site, and then I ask several bloggers to Review my work.  It’s a system that’s worked in the past and I think it works pretty good.

And yet, after doing all that I’m kind of lost because there’s all of this…free time. I’m not writing and I don’t plan on starting on a new project for at least the foreseeable future…so what do I do now?  I’m not the ‘Vacation’ type, someone who piles into the car and just drives to some point on a map.  I used to be when I was younger but those days are gone.  In growing old I’m afraid maturity has caught up to me just a bit and now I have that nagging voice in the back of my mind that continually reminds me that I have no plan, no ‘A or B’ to follow.  I mean I used to just drive and when I got to where I was going I’d find some place to eat and sleep, trying o setup all that in advance was the last thing on my mind.  Now, that I’m older, my mind begins to freak if I don’t have a 21 step plan written down and notarized.  I have to know where I’m sleeping, eating, using the bathroom and more importantly how many stops I’ll have to make on the way because you know I can’t leave the dog behind.  That would be mean…

Yeah, I think I’ll just write some fan fiction and keep myself occupied…

Thank for sharing!
