I should not be writing this blog. Between work, which has been hectic lately, and this being my first week of grad school, I have been way to busy to write and this blog entry comes on borrowed time. If I were only doing one of those things I'd definitely have time to write, even with the normal obligations of life (what I like to call the 'F's: family, friends, food, forty-winks, and the most insane of all, the fact that we all need to have a little Fun every now and then). My dilemma is, I'm doing both grad school and work. Not impossible, many have done it before me, but I'm not sure how many have revised a novel at the same time. It will certainly be a challenge of time management. I do have a plan of attack, a daily schedule that will give me at least a little time to work on my writing and not an outlandish one at that. But as of yet I've failed to implement it. I'll keep trying. If going to grad school means giving up writing I may have to rethink it, at least for now. There's also the possibility of cutting back and only take one class next semester. I'll figure it out but until then, if you don't hear from me, know that I'm trying, as always. I haven't given up or traded my passion for a career. I simply face new challenges, and very adult ones at that, but I am confident and resolute and that stack of unpublished papers, the story that ruled my life for four months, has never fully left my mind.
Until next time, and there will be a next time, I'm Eric and I'm and unpublished author.
