The Return…of Insanity

It’s been months since I’ve written a blog entry.  To be fair, it’s been months since I’ve even added a chapter to my fourth book.  I am ashamed to be called a writer.

My life has been a complete whirlwind.  And there have been a lot of changes.  While the changes were happening, I was upset, panicking, and altogether feeling hopeless.  The only way I have made it through was by getting back into writing and continuing to work out.

I was recently laid off, and ever since people keep telling me to relax.  I’ve heard, “Take time for yourself;” and “Take it easy.”  …Yeah.  I don’t do that.  As my cousin put it, I’m a millennial boomer.  I’m part of the millennial generation, with the work ethic of a boomer.  I appreciate memes, YouTube, and video games.  That’s normal millennial things, right?  …No?  OH well! Not the point.  Like the “baby boomer” generation (or as I like to say, my “Father’s People”), I need to work.  I’m a workaholic.  Yes, I want a social life, to be fit, and travel.  But while doing those things, I will constantly be checking my email, trying to find things to do.  Hell, I worked every day during vacation for the last two years.  I can’t help myself.


My name is Sarah and I am a workaholic with ADHD.  I will continue to wake up at 4:30 am to go to the gym, work out, come home to start writing while watching YouTube all day and taking a break to play video games here and there.  I. Regret. Nothing.

Needless to say, there has finally been progress on my books!  Thankfully, I kept all of my research books from graduate school to continue my work.  Researching Celtic mythology again helps me escape.  It’s been glorious.  I’ve written a few chapters in the last two weeks, which is the most progress I’ve made in a year.  I’ve even submitted my work to a publisher (I’m still waiting to hear back.  No…I’m not in a corner panicking and crying…SHUT UP).

Am I on the job hunt? Of course.  Religiously! A couple hours every day I’m applying to all kinds of jobs.  I hope that I’ll find something soon…you know, before I go absolutely insane.  But in the meantime, I’m going to write all I can.  Get back to my roots.  How else am I supposed to deal with the voices in my head?  That’s how all writers deal with them. Wait.  Is that just me?  O_O Nevermind…


Also, I’ve been updating my author Facebook page!  Check it out to see any updates I have on my novels!
