That Voracious Appetite.

I’m not sure if it’s the impending loss of my complete freedom, the change to the most beautiful spring weather EVER, or just the mere fact that the ending of this first edit of Soulless is so close I can taste it, but I have felt infused with this voracious appetite to write ALL THE THINGS. Don’t get me wrong; this isn’t a complaint. It’s a great feeling. But sometimes that feeling can be so powerful that it practically paralyzes you, which leaves me feeling a little strung out, like I’ve had too much caffeine…or cocaine. Last night, I even went to bed early because I know I can’t work for shit at night, but if I went to bed now, then the sooner it will be morning and I can start working.

So far, I’ve been pacing myself so that I edit just one chapter of Soulless a day, as to not overwhelm myself or get sick of it, but I think I want to charge forward ahead so that I have it finished and ready for my changes as soon as possible. I’m really feeling charged and ready to take it to the next level. I know I was talking about having it finished for an August release date…now I’m thinking late June/early July, and then I can focus on the World Unknown Review 2014. And all those short stories I’ve been wanting to scribble up.

I follow a lot of blogs, so I see other people writing about their success constantly, and then I realize that my own success is right there within my reach. All I have to do is go out there and grab it, and I’m so stoked. I know there’s still some patience involved, but I’m finally getting to that point where the thing I’ve been dreaming of since the start of the year is really actually falling into place. It’s one of the best feelings ever, truly. So I’m plowing through and I am going to get this thing doooooooone.

This voracious appetite needs to stick around for a while. I know it’s going to ebb and flow, like all things, but this is a kind of hunger I can learn to love.

(Of course, I wrote this yesterday, when I was bursting with productivity. Today is Friday, and Fridays are, for the most part, my “hang out and do very little” days, plus there’s a Ghost Adventures marathon this afternoon, but you can bet this voracious appetite will be in full effect tomorrow morning! We all need a break every so often).


  1. Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to
    ask. Does building a well-established website like
    yours require a lot of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations
    or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  2. I’m glad you’re feeling this way. I think I would feel this way a lot more often if I didn’t have the full time job that sucks all the energy out of me. And time. 😦 If I were you, I would edit however many chapters you feel like editing. Don’t limit yourself to one if you feel like editing more. As long as you don’t let yourself burn out.
