Slap my wrist and call me busy!

One of the perks of being a game writer is that I actually look forward to going to the office in the morning, as compared to my old job where I practically had to forcibly roll myself out of bed. It feels more like a fun activity than an actual job, which I really like; I don’t feel stifled or suffocated by the tasks assigned to me, and I’m having so much fun writing up characters and histories and story lines. Plus, for the first time ever, I was finally able to see one of my characters brought to life by the hand of an artist – I cannot tell you how loudly I squealed when I received the first sketches, haha.

However, the one downside is now I find myself behind on quite a few things, including reading, social media, blogging, writing and editing. I actually deactivated my Facebook because it was proving such a huge distraction, and I all but completely forgot about my Twitter. It’s been ages since I sat before my reader and checked out the posts on my feed (and I feel so guilty about that and promise I will try my best to catch up!). Any writing goes to the game instead of my actual novels, and the editing of The Muse Bunny is currently on hold.

I actually don’t remember the last time I was this busy, and yet at the same time I don’t mind because it’s the kind of busy that is fun and productive and involves really friendly people who I enjoy working with. Pretty soon I will able to reveal more about the game; I’m actually excited to let you all in on the details! =D I’m just so proud of how it’s all coming along so nicely.

So… basically this is a post to let you know that I’m alive and haven’t forgotten about this blog or the blogs I follow. 😉 Hopefully I can work out some sort of schedule eventually that allows me to juggle everything without any trouble. That said… how are you all doing? Have you been caught up in any projects of your own too?  =]

  1. Hooray for being busy! And getting to enjoy what is keeping you busy too! I know all about being busy these days. Being a jester means I’m adept at juggling things, but my arms are getting tired between going round and round with work, the wife, the munchkin, the long commute, my normal blogging – writing new posts and reading what everyone else is posting, the novel I’m working on, the new novel I’m trying to start with a friend, the other side project I’m doing with a couple bloggers, taking care of the cats, taking care of the house, trying to squeeze in vacations, trying not to neglect friends, oh… and finding time to eat and sleep in there somewhere too. Usually, it’s sleep I give up on to get the rest done.

    1. Yes! I’m pretty happy. But oh dear – that sounds like a pretty busy schedule, and I thought I was the one swamped here. Good luck with all that! And don’t skive on sleep, really – it all comes back crashing on you.

        1. Ha. I see my teenager siblings trying to stay up as much as they can, and I think, “Oh you are going to regret this SO much when you get older.”

  2. Congrats on the new job and it’s nice to hear how much you love it! I’m sure you’ll find your groove once you get used to your crazy schedule.

    1. Haha, I sure hope so! Things at the moment are a bit overwhelming since we’re working on many things all at once, so maybe it’ll cool down soon. 🙂

    1. Haha, I wondered who was going to take me up on that. And yes, I agree – there’s something so wonderful about being so productive. =]

  3. Yay…congrats on doing something awesome for bucks! I had to do a lot of writing at my last job, and though I enjoyed it, it definitely took away from my novel for a bit. Once you get into the swing of things, your creativity will resettle…and soar. : )

    1. Thank you, Britt! Yeah, there are too many things going at once for me to do any personal writing. I should give it a few more days. 😉

Talk to me! I won't bite. Unless you're made of chocolate, then I promise nothing.
