I had some awesome word counts last week thanks to livestreaming in the morning, finished a book, launched a book with M.D. Cooper, and also had to make a hard decision about a job I would have liked, but would get in the way of my work.

It's all about starting over. We had a rough couple weeks here at the house, which made writing tougher than usual.

I've also been looking into some other income streams,…

I've been struggling a bit with feeling motivated. Sprints have been helping a lot. Zoom meetings with a group of authors to keep each other motivated on the hour has been a huge help. But as I think through this, I'm wondering why I'm feeling this way, and if I'm actually internally or externally motivated. (Well, I know the answer.) Once you figu…
