Yesterday, we had a great interview with Lea Wait, children's author. If you didn't read her interview, scroll down and enjoy.
It doesn't seem to matter how much I get done in a day, the next there are always lots of things to do. Today, I face the fact that my husband and I are closing our online business. The decision was something that needed to be done because we were facing quite a bit of cost, with little return, each month. AND, the state's Department of Revenue wanted their share of our very small pie.
So, my goal for today is to "get rid of" the business, close business accounts with the Department of Revenue, and hopefully file our last tax return for it.
I know this isn't simply about writing today, but in a sense it is. I know that if I feel snowed under by the mundane everyday living, you must feel that way sometimes, too. The more those things pull at me, the longer it takes me to get back to my writing.
Sigh. I know I shouldn't let these things pull down on me, but they always somehow do, and I experience a bit of tightening of the chest when I have to face anything that has to do with money and the Dept. of Revenue! No matter how honest I know we've been in our business dealings, still, the thought of voluntarily contacting them is anxiety-producing.
But, I'm determined to get that behind me, and move on to the other things that I enjoy immensely: greeting people on my emails, checking links, work on marketing & promo, and best of all, writing on my next book.
