Renewed Energy

I don't feel like a slacker, by any means. But I always feel like I never get enough time to do what I need/want to do. I know I'm not alone in this. Many writers are also moms and have jobs outside the home, which I do not. I know I am very lucky with the time that I do get.

I read this article on the Dear Author blog, an interview with Maya Banks. You MUST read it. Very inspiring and motivating interview.

It really kicked my butt into gear. I am not writing enough. I am not spending enough time working toward my goals. I'm not sure how, but I will find more time to write. Even if it means less time for things like Blogging (I may only post 2-3 times a week vs. the 4-5 that I was). I try to read other blogs as much as I can, but I may have to cut that too. I haven't been reading much this summer and it seems as if Bloggers are not posting as much anyway. I have been spending most of my social networing time on if you wanns check out what's going on with me on a daily basis, come follow me!!/StephaniHaefner


  1. Read the link, and that is very enlightening! It shows what a clear business plan with tail-fire determination can do for a writer.

    Note how she said the most important thing was a GOOD BOOK that keeps readers coming back for more. That's your best advertisement, isn't it.
