Not writing is simply not writing

It's been one of those good non-writing days but I still feel guilty because I didn't work on my novel. I only have a few hours each night after work and then the weekends to write but this website overhaul has absolutely consumed me. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think there are only a few pages that still need content and the designer has to finish my database but I am closing in on being able to say DONE! I'm at the point now where I am checking each page for typos and fine tuning and color changes. I spent more time than I could have imagined trying to figure out what bullet to use. I'm up to 143 pages and there will probably be a couple more before I am done. I think I am still on track to launch for June 1st. At least that's the plan.

So I'm busy doing a lot of non-writing things and yet I feel very much like a writer. I'm checking artwork on one book. Working on PR for the two books coming out. Setting up interviews, finishing the website, writing teaching guides - it's all part of the career building plan - but I can't forget that if I don't write, I have no career.

Soon, the words are starting to fight for attention and the voices in my head are getting louder. I think I will go back to the middle grade novel but the YA voice is also clamoring for attention. I can only work on one novel at a time...who will it be...D.C. or Jayde?

Write on, right now.
