like a chicken without a head

So June left me in shambles.

Well, shambles is being over-dramatic, but I wasn’t prepared. I believe in astrology and the whole mercury in retrograde phenomenon and last June left me scrambling and chasing after my own tail. I’ve been in too many places at the same time and if it weren’t for yoga, I’d probably a total mess.

Now, I’m preparing to leave for the province on Thursday and will be gone for a while and the distance from Manila will be good for me, the inconsistency of the Internet is going to be taxing for me as I had planned to use the time to catch up with myself and the things I have to do. I will be leaving for a whole month and a half to go abroad for a trip that has been in the works for over a year now and I’m super excited for this trip as it will take me halfway around the world and I haven’t done a trip that far since 1998.

Because of the distance and the time I will be spending abroad, my whole life is on hold as I cannot get started on any sort of commitment until I get back. But the short term projects to keep me afloat until I get back have been few and far between and I am feeling a little stretched trying to make ends meet for the moment.

But I chose to be a freelancer, so I’m not complaining. This is the price I pay for my freedom. I’ll make it work. I’m going to make everything work and I plan to come back from this long trip renewed, energised, and hopefully with brand new work that’s going to be far above my usual capabilities.

But until then, I’m scrambling, running around like a chicken without a head.

What’s important is that the work on my book has reached it’s zenith. I have the cover art and it’s gorgeous and provocative and very different. I just need it photographed now and then give it to my designer to put the elements together and I have to reformat my book for the lay-out provided by Smashwords. I have decided to use Smashwords as the service to get my e-book out there.

My book, Remnants, is finally coming to its final stretch. This is it. There’s no turning back. It will be released within the third quarter of this year and it scares me and excites me to no end.

I just have to make it through this month and I’m going to be fine. I keep saying that out loud so that it becomes true. I hope it is true.

No, it is true. I will make it so.
