Well, I am back. This time It was a month-long break, but oh well. I actually started to write a blog two weeks ago, but then gave up after I saw the blank page. This little blog will tell you some of the stuff I have been up to this past month.
What has Maddie been up to?
I have been super stressed by school. I haven’t had a day where I can just sit and chill. It was assignments back to back, so blogging was at the bottom of the list for me.
My partner and I have been super lazy with our updating skills. We are releasing 1 chapter every month. I think that’s awful. Hopefully, before the end of this month, we will release the second chapter and start another chapter. Writing takes a lot of time, and I am not like the other authors who can sit and write for the whole day. My limit is usually 3 hours. After that, it starts feeling like work, and I refuse to let my hobby act like my work when I am not even getting paid. On a good note, I am very pleased to say that Love Quest has reached 500 reads. This is very special for me. Thank you to anyone who has read my story. You can find all my stories in the stories tab.
This month I have been trying to catch up on all the stories from Choices. I really enjoy reading choices. The story style and everything are marvelous.
Ran out of ideas
Probably not very surprising to some of you, but I have no idea what direction my blog is going and that’s giving me major anxiety. I hate when that happens.
I seriously also haven’t been posting on YouTube as much. My Amharic lessons are coming to an end, and I have no idea what direction I want to take my channel. I am thinking about making videos, but currently, don’t have my setup figured out. Besides, I don’t know whether or not I want a new channel or continue with the one I have. I seriously appreciate the 250 people subscribed to my channel, but most of them are there for my Amharic videos. Those bring in the views. At this moment, I really don’t have an idea.
Writing in general
As funny as it sounds, I don’t have any stories planned currently. I want to revamp Who Killed Emily? in Limelight, but I don’t know.
Life in general
As of right now, I seriously am thinking about the direction of my blog and channel. New Years is approaching quickly and I don’t know if I achieved any of the goals I set out for myself. It would be very sad if I can’t cross off at least two things from the list. I don’t exactly remember how long my list was, but I am sure it included at least 5 things. I really want to pick up side things, but I just don’t know yet. I have been very disorganized and that has been killing my effectiveness and work ethic. I really need to start planning my day out. Ironically I get up early but barely accomplish anything. I have gotten into the mindset of if I accomplish one thing, I am being productive. I know it’s horrible, but that’s the mindset I am currently in. We’ll see how the coming weeks go.
