I actually worry about this, more than occasionally. I also find myself “being” that voice where other writers are concerned because I’m impatient to get the next installment of their work. When I do, the guilt hits me because I know how slowly I’ve been working for the past long while now. This message from the Universe comes at a good time. It’s one I need to hear and accept.
Should you ever hear that voice inside exclaim that you’re working too slow, are too easily distracted, or that you should take life more seriously, please rest assured, dearest Silver, that it is absolutely, positively not me.
I’m the one saying, “You totally rock! I love you like crazy! Let’s have some fun!” –
We’re still trying to figure out how you get dressed so quickly in the morning, Silver.
Okay, that last one’s easy! I wear my PJs to work. 😉 And yes, there are days when I stay in cotton pants and a tank all day. If I’m not getting out, why dirty up another set of clothes? It’s like making my bed. Why? I’m just gonna get back in the thing in about 12 hours. Am I right? Anyway, I’ll keep my voices to myself and y’all can rest assured that I’m aware of things and working on it. And authors, I know you are too so just ignore me sitting over here biting my tongue. 😂
Yep. Feel guilty when I say I can’t wait for a book because I know you’re working as fast as you can. And I feel guilty because I know people are waiting for books from me and I’m not writing right now. Gah, the guilt… It’s a killer. It might not be the Universe whispering in my ear that I’m too slow, but the voice is there and it’s real, man.
Heh, it’s easy to get dressed when I don’t change clothes. It’s also easy to get dressed when all my clothes are casual. Throw on undergarments, slide into less pajama-like clothing, and out the door. As for making the bed, Hubs does that as part of his morning routine, or it wouldn’t get done. ;o)
LOL See? Sisters from different misters. That’s all I can say. Also, don’t ever feel guilty about nudging me. Knowing SOMEONE wants to read my next book is good for my soul! Truly! Hang in there and don’t let the guilt wear you down. We both know what can happen if we do. Yeah?
