Exhaustion and Reaching Goals Don’t Mix

At the beginning of the year I set some goals, one of which was to complete the planning of Whispering Caves by the end of February. Well, I can tell you now, it’s not going to happen.

I hate giving excuses, but I am too exhausted most of the time to think about writing. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t tried to do writing related activities, because I have. I have been attempting to put a list of publishers together for my finished projects. I have actually submitted one of my short stories for consideration with a future anthology publication. I have been thinking about, and doing some, planning for Whispering Caves (just not enough to get it finished). I have even been reading a writing reference book. So it’s not as if I’m just plain lazy. I’m just too tired.

In all honesty, I feel as if I don’t have a life at the moment. I know that the situation cannot go on as it has, but my options are limited or really extreme, so there’s not much I can do right now…but I’m working on it.

I’m not going to beat myself up over not reaching my goal. And I’m not foolish enough to set another deadline. I will just allow myself to get the planning done when it gets done.
