My last three months have been terribly hectic. Not hectic in an active sense where I’m running all over the place and don’t know if I’m coming or going. I mean hectic in a far more subdued way where you might not see me move from my computer for long stretches, but some serious poo is getting done. I haven’t been this creative, responsible, or productive for hire in a very long time. Man, it has felt so good. I thrive on that kind of hectic.
I have a few sites under my thumb. For the most part they’re all mine and are related to the creative business that is me. Keeping them current means a lot of devoted time to them and taking advantage of the wonderful thing that is scheduling a post. I’ve yet to be as good with the social media associated with them (I hate to admit that I just don’t like social media) but I’m trying to get better at that. I would probably be totally killing it (I’m taking that line from an obnoxious deodorant commercial that drives me crazy) if I didn’t also have client work to keep up with. Still, there was a time where my air fairy and procrastination disease made me a really unproductive Miss-Put-It-Off-For-Later. I don’t miss those days.
So, what? Or, where is this going? Well let me tell you… I’ve been so into my productivity that I realized I wasn’t taking any time to breath. So, after pawing through hobby sites, I decided I was going to be a doll-maker. You know, something to calm me down. Isn’t that what everyone does?! I told a friend this and she said “Okay, so… you’re going to take on another creative thing you’ll end up trying to market as a means to relax from all the other stuff you do to try and keep the bills paid?” And I said “YUP!”
