You know what sucks? When one of your greatest passions takes a backseat in life.
For all of 2010, I didn't write. I just stopped writing. I didn't even finish NaNo (or even start) which is blasphemy for me!
I guess it was because I was caught up in my new fancy job and new friends and other nonsense hobbies that were taking up my time. I could continue to make up the excuses, but the fact remains that I didn't write a word.
The past couple of weeks, I began regaining my writing spirit and by George it's like I've fallen in love all over again!
I feel like 2011 will be my year to shine as a writer and voice over. These are my two greatest passions and I am a believer that people can work full time at what they're most passionate about.
My first plan of attack? To apply to as many freelance opportunities as possible. Now, I realize it's New Years Eve and not a lot of people are going to be evaluating my chances and I probably won't hear anything positive from my hard work until Monday.
However...it's a start! I plan on continuing this up hill climb until I have so much freelance writing to do that I'll be forced to quit my job! That's right, I'm shooting for the moon!!!
Has your writing taken a backseat because of "this and that"? How do you plan on resolving that for the new year?
Happy New Year and Happy Writing!
