It’s been a whirlwind of a six months since A Year in the Life of a Total and Complete Genius was published, and I’ve been learning all kinds of new things, about publishing, about myself, and about my writing habits. I’m procrastinating on book three right now, so, to make myself feel better, I thought I should strike something that is long overdue off of my to-do list: a blog post to recap the last little while.
Things I have learned:
1) I am terrible at keeping a blog. You think I would know this, since I have two other blogs out floating out there in the ether of the internet, one with approximately six entries over two years, and one with none. It has a great title though. I wish I could remember what I was going to say on it. My guess is book reviews, but who knows?
2) I love talking about myself. I find myself so highly entertaining that school visits, and chatting with kids about my favourite subject (me) gives me an adrenaline high that takes hours to wear off. It’s pretty great.
3) I really thought I could get into good writing habits, and every week I try a new tactic to fool myself into writing more. None of them work.
4) Netflix is the devil. A beguiling, enticing devil.
