I have been struggling with that question. I haven’t posted anything new here in over a week, and I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out what I should be doing RIGHT NOW.
Write something to pitch as a guest post.
Scribble down some ideas for my blog.
Watch how-to videos and tutorials on branding myself; obviously, I should rebrand myself.
Watch tutorials on infographics.
Do your actual writing work that gets you paid.
Fuck it all, burn the house down, and run away.
Or just make cookies.
I have been making lots of cookies, you guys. I was frozen last week. I was so frozen I did not get a single thing accomplished because I was trying to ACCOMPLISH IT ALL!
This post isn’t a list of anything, and it’s not a “how to be more productive” post. I just want to say life happens. Don’t try to do everything. Do one thing every day.
This post won’t get much traffic, but I made a schedule for myself, for the first time since becoming a freelancer, and dammit, I am sticking to it. My schedule says I post today, so I am posting.
It’s not much, just me whining a bunch, but I did reach my goal.
I’ve also been working on my NEW WEBSITE! I am so excited about it. My new page will focus on my fictional and personal writing and won’t be anything business-related. If you like the way I write but hate my content, visit that site. It’s pretty cool.
What site, you say? Well, I’m not quite there yet, but I will post something entirely new to direct you there. This is happening soon, so come back and see me!
Do you have a website you’d like me to check out? Comment below and let me know!
Do you need a mentor or coach to help you begin living your freelance dream? Do you need some help with the written word? Do you want to talk about the last book you read?
Email me at Chandi@ChandiGilbert.com or subscribe to my bi-monthly newsletter for quick and simple tips on how to improve your writing.
I can totally relate to this! It’s so easy to get overwhelmed! Good for you for getting the blog out there anyway. 🙂
Thanks, Megan. This was a post to remind readers to be kind to themselves because that is what I’m doing.
Amen to that!
