Exhausted and Burnt Out

So, the book is finally out and I am getting the rest of my ducks in a row. Setting up author pages (Goodreads), publishing to Amazon,
Smashwords.com, and looking at a few other options.
The blogs are going to get a revamp in here somewhere so keep an eye out for new pages and links.
There is so much to do.

So…yes, really a published author…I was hoping for cake or even bourbon when it happened but hey, you get what you get. Slightly disappointed in the lack of magical confetti and instant fame but I can work with a vague smidge of kind of fame and post it notes covering my entire desk.

I am tempted to post a donate to you local starving artist button on here somewhere.
Thanks to Real Life issues I am beyond broke at the moment and while I have a week vacation coming up I will not be going any where since I can’t afford it right now.
The book is finally out and all of a sudden I feel horrible. Exhausted and stressed out, total let’s curl up into a ball and die kind of exhausted. I want to pull the covers over my head and forget the world for a while, why is this never an option? I would like an excuse from work for recuperation from editing, please. Could you claim mental exhaustion if it’s not your job that caused it? Hmm…

Well, time to break out the to do list and start adding new sections and bullet points 😉

  1. You’re a published author! Youv’e made money on your book! That’s pretty damn great and worth the exhaustion.

    Not having money sucks. I don’t know what you can do about that. Maybe you could borrow money from someone to pay back later, at least to do one or two things on your vacay?

    • I am trying to decide if I want to do just a day or two at the beach. I would like the downtime but don’t really need the expense. Might just drive down for a day or something, shrug. Winging it at this point.
