Currently // June 2017: The End of a Disappointing First Half

  1. Hi Lisa!
    I can relate to you in a lot of ways. I can’t believe that half the year is just gone… I know I could do a lot better personally, professionally, and with my health. I like what you said about leaving all the mistakes and bad experiences in the first half of 2017.
    I still have this feeling that 2017 is going to be a great year and at least there is some time left.
    Good luck on your Bitch Media’s Writing Fellowship program. I really hope you get it. You are a wonderful writer and I always enjoy your posts. It also sounds like you have some exciting changes on the way. Like a career change could be big.
    The first half was rough because I was dealing with health issues and got injured out of the blue. Here’s to a better half of 2017!!!

  2. Good luck on the future fellowship (you’re an amazing writer and I can’t wait to read your pieces) and I understand the “I wasted this month” thing, I can’t believe its the 30th, but I’m happy I get to see another day and hopefully, make some changes to my life and daily schedule :) excellent post!


  3. I was in a play about Virginia Woolf one time, and read a bunch of her stuff. As I recall, it’s all similar to what you are experiencing. I think her underlying mental and emotional distress are pretty palpable between the lines.

    Regarding fear of not writing well enough, I realized that it’s about finding your niche. I will never be good at fiction. I am an AWESOME business writer though. Somehow, I have a knack that not everyone does. From what I’ve read, you are OUTSTANDING and gripping at fiction. I don’t know anything else of yours, though. You do. If not Bitch Media, there’s something else!

    May I say, I think it’s a great idea that you do a semi-annual inventory of life!

    …and yes. DYING for the new GoT season!


  4. I totally didn’t get as much done as my (carefully planned) schedule told me I should. I just had to say to myself that what I was trying to do was a process, and I just had to go with it, no matter how slowly things were moving (I usually take the driven steamroller approach, which is usually pretty successful. Not this time…LOL). Oh, and BREAK A LEG re: BITCH media fellowship! Keep us posted on that!
