      Replying to PMs

      Please note that you can not reply to a personal message by replying to the notification email. Recently admins have received some email responses to personal messages. This is because some members have replied to the notification email. You can not reply to a personal message via the email. What replying to the notification email does is send a copy of the original message and the reply to the admin email address. It does not send your reply to the person who sent you the message. The email notification of the personal message does request "PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL!"

Morning Pages

Morning Pages (from The Artist's Way). Three of them. Go write them. Now.

Less pity-party, more doing. Or at least trying.

Just a thought and a reminder to myself -- working hard and maximizing my time spent working on my writing (is 5,000 words a day possible for me?) are hugely important, but -- I also need to keep in mind that promoting my work will also be key. I need to research exactly what I'll have to do when the time comes.

I know it might seem out of sequence, but it's something I don't tend to think about (the other aspects are more commonly on my mind). So...this reminder.

So...here's the awful truth. I need to stop goofing off so much.

I need to write. And sell that writing. There are venues out there that could be profitable -- read, "if done correctly, will provide a decent living".

I've learned to work hard in the past few years, to dig in and do what I have to do even when it's out of my comfort zone. Now I need to take my writing seriously and stop wasting so much of my day cruising on the internet. It's entertaining and it gives me the illusion of having a social life, but enough is enough. I need to cut that time down and get productive.

I can do this. And it will be worth it.
