I just finished a project and the downs are back.
I don’t know about you but I ride the emotional roller coaster every time I finish a project. Several things could relate to this feeling.
Pushing hard during the last week has deprived me of sleep and I’m barely functioning.
expectations of excitement from others that doesn’t manifest right away.
still can’t get the damn cover to update on amazon.
I have ten other projects that need my attention.
my TBR pile is growing but I don’t have time to relax with someone else’s words.
Like I said, there are a ton of reasons for my post project depression. The Unlikely Hero, A Fair Play Renaissance Fair Play is available for sale on amazon.com, but it’s a play, and it isn’t very long. I really don’t expect a play to sell like a novel. There are three different versions in the book , written for three different types of performance. I should be happy I finished it. That’s one more item in my writer resume.
I know this is going to pass and I’m going to dive back into my half done science fiction novel, Memory Reborn. Chapter eleven is going to be steamy. I have a lot of stories to look forward to. After Memory Reborn I plan to write Soulweb Sleeping. I have a couple of new story ideas about post apocalyptic society after that. I might write a second play. Let’s see how the first one is received. And eventually I’ll write Soulweb Shattered. Who know knows? I might feel like writing the two remaining books of the trilogy in sequence.
All I know right now is that I’m tired and I’m rambling on. You know what keeps me going when I feel like this?
You. You’re reading. As long as that is true, I know everything is gonna be alright.
