My work or lack thereof

Here’s an update of my life (or lack thereof)…

What I’ve recently read:

Insurgent_212Insurgent by Veronica Roth

If I keep this up I’ll average about a book a week. But, of course, I can’t keep it up. When I’m in the midst of a book, I’m not tired at all. No, the weariness comes upon me after I’ve finished. It makes me not want to pick up another book for a couple days. Of course, before that happens the desire to read another overwhelms me and I’ve picked up another.

How many books do I have waiting for me from the library? A handful. How many do I have waiting at home? Goodness. Do I have to answer that?


What I’ve recently written:

Goodness. Do I have to answer that as well? I’m in a quandary. NT is out amongst the agents so that’s being taken care of, but I’ve reached a point where I pose the question that is, I’m sure, in every writer’s mind: Why bother finishing the sequel if the original hasn’t been snatched up?

Why indeed? I have yet to meet or hear of a writer who doesn’t feel this way at least once (more likely it’s many times) and it’s not the first time I’ve felt it. I know I’ll get over it and I know I should endeavor to write through it. But I’m not. I’m doing the ostrich manuever except instead of sticking my head in the ground, I’m sticking it in book after book.

At least I’m getting a lot read, right?


About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
